Filming For THE AVENGERS 2 Heading To South Africa?

Filming For THE AVENGERS 2 Heading To South Africa?

It seems that, in addition to the United Kingdom, some filming for Marvel's hotly anticipated sequel to The Avengers may take place in Cape Town of South Africa. Check it out after the jump for details!

With Iron Man 3 currently the No. 1 film in America, Thor: The Dark World in post-production, Captain America: The Winter Soldier filming now and Guardians of the Galaxy in pre-production, Marvel Studios is on track to commence filming early next year for The Avengers 2, which is the culmination of its Phase 2 slate. Earlier reports said that the sequel will shoot primarily in the United Kingdom, but it seems some filming may take place in another country; that isn't the U.S..

Multiple listeners of South African FM radio station 5FM suggest that Earth's Mightiest Heroes could be reassembling in Cape Town, according to the Chairman of Cape Town Film Studios. During the radio session, the chairman mentioned that Marvel reps have phoned them requesting permission to shoot the next Avengers movie in South Africa's jewel city, and 2nd-most populated.

If true, Marvel's early inquiry for filming in South Africa could be an indication of a new setting or, predominantly, a new character in Joss Whedon's (developing) Avengers 2 script. Coincidentally, rumors surfaced just last week attaching a potential leading actor and a 2014 start date to the Black Panther movie. However, considering that Marvel hasn't announced an adaptation of the first black mainstream superhero, we can only assume that T'Challa, and his advanced African nation Wakanda, will appear in The Avengers 2; based on the possibility that it will film in Cape Town.



Marvel's The Avengers 2 wouldn't be the first film to shoot in Cape Town, South Africa. The stunning scenery and great value of the primate city of the Western Cape has also lured recent films such as Dredd, Safe House, Dark Tide, and Chronicle. Anyhow, starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, The Avengers (untitled) sequel is written & directed by Joss Whedon, and hits theaters on May 1, 2015!
