Has THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Set Sights On South Korea? Possible Plot Info

According to ExtMovie, who's supposedly a pretty credible source in South Korea, some filming for The Avengers: Age of Ultron will take place in the East Asian country. Thanks to a heads up via SuperheroMovieNews and a translation via Reddit, the report claims the Marvel production will shoot in the Gangnam Station area, Gangnam Road Cheongdam bridge, and Songdo in April to May.
Furthermore, the report not only names multiple Korean actresses who are said to be up for a villain role, but it also details the role South Korea will play in the highly-anticipated sequel. Check it out:

Extra info - Hollywood's Marvel Team rented 1000sq ft (?) of filming equipment. Setting - Using S.Korea's background as an "IT super power", the film will have "Ultron" be created by some tech company in Gangnam. Ultron wakes up and wreaks havoc in surrounding area. 5 South Korean actresses are under consideration for a villain role. They are Kim So Yeon, Kim Min-hee, Han Go-eun, Han Ye-seul, and Kim Min-jung. It's 30 minutes worth of footage that'll be used in the movie and there will be total of 15 shootings. First filming will be on April 3rd, 2014. A lot of staffs are being hired for this shoot and they're scrambling as much HD cameras that are in Korea as they can get their hands on and Korean film industry invested $billion into this shoot. Again, this is just a rumor that I translated from a Korean website. The website itself is credible as directors and actors visit that website frequently to advertise their films and such. - Reddit





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.

So Iron Man 2 is basically a foreshadowing of Age of Ultron, seems to make sense but I don't like it much.
McNyagano - 1/19/2014, 5:44 PM
Holy SHITT!!!!!
ShadowPimp723 - 1/19/2014, 5:45 PM
Now that we got the first Gangnam Style reference out of the way...

marvel72 - 1/19/2014, 5:48 PM

Ehh, sounds ok. Probably will be a lot better on film than reading. Plus, we don't know the purpose of the creation.

Still excited.
Praetorian - 1/19/2014, 5:57 PM
Ultron does kind of look like an Asian creation, plus Ultron sounds like just the kind of thing the Japanese or Korean would name an android
GoldenOne33 - 1/19/2014, 5:58 PM
So I guess this may be true that Mandarin may end up in South Korea and Ultron is Mandarin's Jarvis.

Maybe we will go back to the original origin of the 10 rings organization and it's origins. And have Mandarin reside there. Having Ultron as his Jarvis.

Maybe Roger Wardell's rumors are true.
McNyagano - 1/19/2014, 6:00 PM
I'm thinking Shield probably asks that tech company to create an autonomous robot weapon and it ends up turning against them. That'd would be really cool if that happens.
Kurne - 1/19/2014, 6:02 PM
I thought the rumors were:

- Pym creates the Ultron software

- It get's sold to HYDRA

- Stark creates the body and is the supplier for the Vibranium
MrCBM56 - 1/19/2014, 6:03 PM
So did Mark Ruffalo suggest maybe they will or did he say no?
TheBlackNerd - 1/19/2014, 6:08 PM
And the spoilers/potential spoilers for this film begin....
Pedrito - 1/19/2014, 6:19 PM
Sounds interesting, but I doubt it's entirely true. Some stuff seems to have been lost in translation for starters (1000 sq ft of equipment, billion dollar investment).
They said that Ultron goes through upgrades, so this one might be one of them.
Man, it's gonna be tough to keep things under wraps during production. Although I guess they did a good job with CA TWS.
Praetorian - 1/19/2014, 6:21 PM
I doubt Ruffalo knows if they're going to shoot in Korea, and if they actually are I doubt Banner would be in those scenes
Rockteur - 1/19/2014, 6:25 PM
I love lamp.
McNyagano - 1/19/2014, 6:27 PM
@Praetorian

But he has the script though, wouldn't the location in the script too?
Praetorian - 1/19/2014, 6:30 PM
@McNyagano Yeah, thought about that. Guess he'd probably know but shooting location and locations in the script are often two separate things so I am not sure.

Joss and Feige lied their butts off about the first Avengers movie and this one won't be any different.
AlexanderLykins - 1/19/2014, 6:43 PM
Also, what? Can someone tell me what this all means?

If you listen to Gangnam style in English, it's actually like a freakin' love poem the lyrics are so polite.

That Hawkeye bloke sure knows how to party. I don't even know what the f*ck he's doing standing on his gigantic head, an' wiggling his legs like some sort of drunken epileptic thrown headfirst into a sinking barrel..

But it looks fun. It also makes me think, for the second time in an hour.. why am I still sober? Question for the ages.
NovaCorpsFan - 1/19/2014, 7:20 PM
I dressed as the Hulk for a Harlem shake at school. We did it to advertise the talent show. I just went bathsit.
McNyagano - 1/19/2014, 7:21 PM
"That Hawkeye bloke sure knows how to party."

I think he's twerking lol
NovaCorpsFan - 1/19/2014, 7:21 PM
Alexandra Daddario got nude on True Detective. I saw her boobies... but not her...

NovaCorpsFan - 1/19/2014, 7:23 PM
I need to start saving some of these gifs, they're hilarious.

NovaCorpsFan - 1/19/2014, 7:24 PM
Right I swear this is the last one, but I couldn't not post this!

TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 1/19/2014, 7:29 PM
ATTENTION!!!!!

Just in case some of you haven't seen too much of Spader, check out this clip. Pretty sinister and disturbing... If he brings this aboard for Ultron... Best CBM villain ever.
