Starting next week, March 30, The Avengers: Age of Ultron production will close off several bridges and areas of Seoul, South Korea, through April 14. Though the actors involved in the shoot are a big mystery, it was revealed not along ago that the core scene set in Seoul involves Ultron laying parts of the city to waste. There is also a Korean IT institute that will play a central part in Age of Ultron where the titular villain "tries to acquire state-of-the-art technology." What do you think?



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 Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015.

Dear Koreans,

I hope that you have better cameras than the Italians and we'll be able to get a better look at the suits and the actors.

With love
Phoenix
MsDarkPhoenix - 3/28/2014, 6:34 AM
Gusto is sexy and he knows it :P
Brainiac13 - 3/28/2014, 6:38 AM
Sounds like a really nice chap!


LewisD - 3/28/2014, 6:42 AM
Set videos should be flowing out of Korea daily once shooting starts. ;)
fettastic - 3/28/2014, 6:46 AM
@DarkPhoenix - I know RIGHT? Yeah there's this thing called [frick]ing HD! Do they just get all this shit we threw away 10 years ago over there?
CoulsonLives - 3/28/2014, 6:53 AM
I bet if they went to Singapore or wherever places that have a cleanliness law...
Joss would be screwed.
soforizo - 3/28/2014, 6:58 AM
"We're going to showcase your city like never before"...

Just lay to them straight Joss; you gonna destroy the place! LOL!
antman8o8 - 3/28/2014, 7:03 AM
in Joss we trust!
SecretWarrior - 3/28/2014, 7:04 AM
Yes... Def thinking that is a hydra dreadnought now.

I guess we''ll see if the actual ultron in Korea matches the guy's mask in the start of this article.

Can't wait either way!!!
ConnorJMacleod - 3/28/2014, 7:05 AM
It would like to see the Avengers mess up Parts of North Korea..

Did I say that loud? whups..

Anyway, I hope to get a closer look to the Actors in Korea. Keep your Cams ready guys :D
sKeemAn - 3/28/2014, 7:05 AM
Yeah.. Joss should destroy before North Korea does.
MsDarkPhoenix - 3/28/2014, 7:07 AM
@fettastic I have no idea!! I live right next to them (Greece) and we have HD cameras here!
arsonjack - 3/28/2014, 7:07 AM
joss whedon should cast SOL KYUNG GU- the best south korean actor.
sKeemAn - 3/28/2014, 7:13 AM
I'm looking at the head of Ultron, and I'm really liking the stand-in design. With some CGI he's goins to look menacing. Joss has raised the stakes with this one.
GodzillaKart - 3/28/2014, 7:13 AM
Huh. An actual sincere apology. I was expecting something cheeky.
GodzillaKart - 3/28/2014, 7:15 AM
"No duh" That one takes me back.
batz11 - 3/28/2014, 7:26 AM

That sounded exactly like me before I date any girl...
NoAssemblyReqd - 3/28/2014, 7:43 AM
The first movie's final battle was pretty great, which is amazing when you consider it basically only encompassed a few city blocks. I can't wait to see what sort of action Joss can bring us now that he's going global.

(Sidenote: As much as I hate the TRANSFORMERS movies overall, DOTM's final act is pretty much how I imagined a confrontation with Ultron and his bots to go down)
Armyshot - 3/28/2014, 8:11 AM
That's a dreadnaught for sure
kuroneko1271 - 3/28/2014, 8:16 AM
This movie's gonna show massive scale destruction all over the World!
BatManiac - 3/28/2014, 8:20 AM
He should do an apology video for Alien Resurrection.

If there's anything Whedon needs to apologise for, it's that!
CrimsonComedian - 3/28/2014, 8:27 AM
Just by filming there, Joss has gotten everyone in that country to go see the movie when it comes out.
Koreans are very nationalistic.
cipher - 3/28/2014, 8:29 AM
Don't kid yourself, old man. We all know I'm sexiest sunuvabitch here.
CapitanAmerika2 - 3/28/2014, 8:38 AM
Joss should film in Pyongyang. Maybe have Captain America kill Kim Jong Un and anyone who opposes capitalism and South Korea. A regime change by the Avengers would be great.
DEVLIN712 - 3/28/2014, 9:06 AM
Shit, gotta diffuse the tension, I think Ciph and Gusto are both beautiful!
FerFogs - 3/28/2014, 9:18 AM
@vandinejd - hehehe anything like this happening in hollywood is practically impossible...
SauronsBANE - 3/28/2014, 9:31 AM
Classy guy. This movie is going to be something special, even more than the 1st Avengers film. Bring it!
Bigred20 - 3/28/2014, 9:47 AM
seoul knew when they agreed to let AOU film they wud close down streets and bridges
every film that shoots on location does that
JoJo1982 - 3/28/2014, 9:55 AM
Lol joss Whedon ur the coolest

I guess after what happen to michael bay last yr, joss don't want the same to happen to him lol
DrunkenNukem - 3/28/2014, 9:56 AM
Why must he apologize??...if Whedon is filming a film down my street "everyone in da hood" would be pleased....


I mean..its [frick]ing Joss Whedon...even Kim Jon watch his movies lol
Scarilian - 3/28/2014, 10:01 AM
Its going to get blown the [frick] up, isn't it? xD
bropous - 3/28/2014, 10:17 AM
Joss. Just a point here.

You should have also mentioned that Seoul has had its heart ripped out and been multiply decimated during wartime, and that it lives under constant threat of annihilation, and apologized if you have re-awakened some painful memories of several decades/generations back by presenting the spectacle of the capitol of South Korea laid waste by a soul-less, relentless beast hell-bent on destruction and repression of the human spirit.

That being said, nice apology to the South Korean residents of Seoul.
bropous - 3/28/2014, 10:21 AM
Oh, and by the way:

Korean girls are HOT!!!!






bropous - 3/28/2014, 10:22 AM
And, of course, the inbred Northern retard after seeing Seoul destroyed in The Avengers: Age of Ultron:
