Marvel Studios announced today that the highly anticipated super hero sequel Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” will film key elements of the movie in the capital city of Seoul. Bringing production of this significant motion picture to Korea will create jobs for local extras, crews and vendors which will benefit the local film industry in South Korea.
“South Korea is the perfect location for a movie of this magnitude because it features cutting-edge technology, beautiful landscapes and spectacular architecture,” said Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios and producer of Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” “We would especially like to thank the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST) for making it possible for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ to come to Korea.”
“We’re very excited to have the production in Korea, and also expect this to serve as the footstep of many more opportunities yet to come,” says minister of Culture, Sports & Tourism of Republic of Korea, Yoo Jinryong.
In addition to Korea, where the number of fans of Marvel Studios’ films has grown since the release of “Iron Man,” the international production schedule for Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” includes locations in London, United Kingdom, where the production will be based, as well as Johannesburg, South Africa; and Aosta Valley, Italy, with additional locations to be announced.
Directed by Joss Whedon (“Marvel’s The Avengers”), the film returns its iconic cast, including Robert Downey Jr. (“Iron Man 3,” “Marvel’s The Avengers”) as Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Chris Hemsworth (“Thor: The Dark World,” “Marvel’s The Avengers”) as Thor, Mark Ruffalo (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Now You See Me”) as Hulk, Chris Evans (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Marvel’s The Avengers”) as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Marvel’s The Avengers”) as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner (“American Hustle,” “Marvel’s The Avengers,”) as Hawkeye, and Samuel L. Jackson (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Marvel’s The Avengers”) as Nick Fury. Joining the cast are Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Godzilla,” “Kick Ass 2?) as Quicksilver, Elizabeth Olsen (“Godzilla”) as Scarlet Witch and James Spader (“The Blacklist,” “Lincoln”) as Ultron.
Set for release in the United States on May 1, 2015, Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is produced by Kevin Feige. Executive Producers are Louis D’Esposito, Jeremy Latcham, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, and Jon Favreau.
Yesterday Robert participated to the “Howard Stern’s Birthday Bash” Presented By SiriusXM, Produced By Howard Stern Productions and I’ve added to the gallery few HQs. Also as you can notice we have new layouts inspired to my two favourite movies with Robert. After all he’s Sherlock Holmes, for sure but…isn’t he Iron Man?? Enjoy everything!

Robert made his appereance to the Golden Globes presenting the Best Actress in a motion picture, musical or comedy (won by Amy Adams). We got only three pictures, for our man to skip the red carpet, but I’m hoping I’ll get something more and also on the hunt for a good video of the moment. Stay tuned!
