Hulk Rampage!? Vague AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Scene Details From South Africa Shoot
Including some non-revealing set photos, reports have surfaced from the Johannesburg, South Africa set of The Avengers: Age of Ultron describing an action sequence with the Incredible Hulk. Check it out
Filming for The Avengers: Age of Ultron is gearing up for its last week in Johannesburg, South Africa, before the production moves north to Italy. While the Marvel sequel's “action photography sequences” have been filmed quietly this past week, we've received word that things got a bit more enthralling and… green over the weekend, or Friday. “I could see some sort of action scene where Hulk was battling someone but not too sure who was it,” a local, Ismail Ebrahim , informed CBM. “I could make it out clearly because they use a huge green head whenever they're filming Hulk scenes. …They used a guy dressed normally but had on a backpack with 2 iron poles holding up hulk's chest upwards and then he was doing whatever he had to do… scaring the people. By the looks of it, Hulk will probably play a major role in the Johannesburg shoot.”
Irfaan Ebrahim adds that the Hulk gets thrown into trucks and there are lots of people, extras, fleeing away from the Green Goliath. Beyond who or what the Hulk is battling against, this scene raises some other questions. With the first 10 minutes of The Avengers: Age of Ultron said to be taking place in Johannesburg, South Africa, could this mean we'll see the Hulk in full glory from the get-go, as opposed to his mild-mannered alter-ego Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo)? Maybe. It's also possible that the Marvel sequel's climatic sequence could return to Johannesburg, during which this particular scene could take place. Regardless, don't expect to see the principal cast members in costume anytime soon as it has also been reported that the stars won't commence principal photography until April, and they won't be shooting outside of the United Kingdom. This applies especially to whatever will be filmed in Italy next month. What do you think?
