Looks Like THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Is Set To Shoot In South Africa

The first mention of The Avengers sequel filming in South Africa was that Marvel were only scouting the location back in May, but here's an indication that the studio has received approval. Check it out!

We're just three months shy of potentially getting an unofficial look at The Avengers: Age of Ultron with filming scheduled to kick-off in late March. Though principal photography is set primarily in the United Kingdom, you may recall last year when Marvel Studios reportedly requested permission to shoot some of The Avengers sequel in Cape Town, South Africa. Now it appears they've probably received approval from the city as the Age of Ultron has added a South Africa-based extras casting coordinator, J.P. van der Merwe, to its production crew list on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB).

The nature of the shoot is still unknown, but South Africa may be one of several international settings in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Writer and director Joss Whedon revealed previously that “a lot of the sequel has to do with [the team's] place not only in America but in the world.” Of course, filming in South Africa also fuels speculation that Earth's Mightiest Heroes will run into T'Challa aka the Black Panther, whose homeland is a fictional African nation called Wakanda. However, when you consider the several characters that Whedon already has to flesh out or establish in the film, there may only be room for a reference to the Wakandian prince. The film could even make use of Wakanda's mound of vibranium, which is the rare metal that not only makes up Captain America's shield, but also has been sought by The Avengers' villain Ultron in the comics. Anyhow, Cape Town, South Africa has accommodated the filming of several major films such as Chronicle, Safe House, Dredd and more. What do you think?

In other small Age of Ultron news, Clint Barton aka Hawkeye actor Jeremy Renner has confirmed that he, too, has received his copy of the script, but he's not revealing anything from it anytime soon. And while there's been rumors of who might be scoring the Marvel sequel - Brian Tyler, but Alan Silvitri may return after all - it seems Joss Whedon already has some brilliant ideas:

The Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Samuel L. Jackson and James Spader. The anticipated film is set to release on May 1, 2015.

Black Panther after-credit scene, please!
ATrueHero1987 - 1/5/2014, 4:05 PM
Reference to BP, maybe? We won't see BP until his movie comes out more than likely?
DefcoN - 1/5/2014, 4:06 PM
Good to hear Renner is still on board.
DrDoom - 1/5/2014, 4:07 PM
My guess is that there is some sort of reference of cameo to set up a Black Panther solo in Phase Three.

Regardless, I'm incredibly excited for Age of Ultron. I just wish I can be the villain of an Avengers film someday

all dis. want want want.
Klone - 1/5/2014, 4:09 PM
Please Black Panther! Please Black Panther! Oh please have Black Panther!
MrCBM56 - 1/5/2014, 4:09 PM
Yeah. I doubt will get Black Panther in the movie, but I think Ultron will travel there for an upgraded armor.

MrCBM56 - 1/5/2014, 4:09 PM

Not sure if serious or...
Klone - 1/5/2014, 4:09 PM
Having BP in an Ultron film makes sense though. Vibranium anyone?
AztecRainGod - 1/5/2014, 4:10 PM
This must mean Black Panther ! lol. NOT

Its not like they already said cape town is doubling for Avengers base.
Klone - 1/5/2014, 4:10 PM

Yeah, I am. Not the biggest BP ever but a really cool character with a unique background, etc. Has some similarities to WW in terms of concept.

And if my favorite superhero does indeed make it somehow in this film, consider myself mind blown.
Desrow - 1/5/2014, 4:13 PM
Too much crowned... yeah sure.

Bring on the Panther!
ds9epicfan - 1/5/2014, 4:19 PM
Sound like it's gonna be another great movie!Hopefully we'll get an official response in the next few weeks about whether Black Panther will make an appearance in the movie.

MrCBM56 - 1/5/2014, 4:21 PM

Exactly. I wouldn't be surprised if Ultron went there and caused destruction/chaos (or if the avengers battled him there) that resulted in a lot of people dead. That would elude to T'Challa father being dead and him becoming king and Black Panther in his own film.
ALegendaryPanda - 1/5/2014, 4:21 PM
If BLACK PANTHER makes a cameo in this film somehow, I will scream like a schoolgirl.
ATrueHero1987 - 1/5/2014, 4:21 PM
Just remembered, on one of the episodes of Agents Of SHIELD, the interrogation room wall was lined with vibranium alloy...

I confirm all comments and video from Intruder. Marvel FTW
MrCBM56 - 1/5/2014, 4:23 PM
If Wakanda is in the film, we can almost guarantee a BP film for Phase 3.
BritishMonkey - 1/5/2014, 4:25 PM
Yes, make mention of Black Panther.
SnapperCarr - 1/5/2014, 4:26 PM
Black Panther!

SnapperCarr - 1/5/2014, 4:27 PM
Oops, wrong one.

MrCBM56 - 1/5/2014, 4:27 PM

Yes, exactly.
WakandaKing - 1/5/2014, 4:28 PM
Give me black panther......GIVE ME PANTHEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR (Michael Bay style explosions in background)
jrp6048 - 1/5/2014, 4:28 PM
I would love even a simple reference but let's not forget that Henry Pym won't be the creator of ultron. So I'm not getting my hopes up cause of how much they are changing
IM53 - 1/5/2014, 4:29 PM
Hand to hand combat Tchalla is king,rivaled only by Cap and the force that IS IronFist.
ATrueHero1987 - 1/5/2014, 4:29 PM
I pretty sure we will get BP during phase 3. Remember, Marvel has being working on a BP script since 2011. In 2012, Raw Leiba met with Marvel with talks about playing a villain role in BP. MS has 3 upcoming movies. 2 for 2016 & 1 for 2017, maybe one of those slots is for BP.
