Exciting! Marvel Studios confirmed that parts of AVENGERS 2 will be filmed in South Korea. Titled “Avengers 2: Age of Ultron”, the movie is slated for release in the summer of 2015.
This is an exciting news for Korean fans of AVENGERS and I know there are many. It is now one of the most talked about issues on Korean portal sites. Details as to the time and location of filming have not been released.
Oh I remember the time Tom Cruise was here and I waited along with many at CGV Yongsan. Seeing Tom Cruise in the flesh was surreal (I like him since “The Outsiders”) even if all the photos I took never came out right.
Back to the topic! The cast of AVENGERS 2 includes Robert Downey Jr. as Ironman, Chris Hemworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Chris Evans as Captain America and James Spader as Ultron.
Will a Korean actor be in the movie? Kim Soo Hyun (the actress ~ not the actor) has been reported to be in the cast. She will play a doctor and will appear in the second half of the film.
