With shooting in Johannesburg, South Africa underway, Joss Whedon is adding another international locale to the itinerary for THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. It was announced that the sequel will shoot in Seoul, South Korea. No details on what will be shot there aside from Whedon hinting "key elements" will come into play. Principal filming begins next month in England with some scenes also being shot in Italy and the United States.

While Captain America clearly has his origin nation emblazoned within his name, other heroes like Thor and Iron Man have enjoyed global exposure in their recent films, with THOR: THE DARK WORLD taking place in England and IRON MAN 3 in China. Marvel bigwig Kevin Feige shared the reasoning for shooting in Seoul to The Hollywood Reporter

"South Korea is the perfect location for a movie of this magnitude because it features cutting-edge technology, beautiful landscapes and spectacular architecture."

With THE AVENGERS being a global phenomenon, it makes sense to position the team as defenders of Earth rather than of the United States. Shooting across the world will not only make the film more marketable, it makes plot sense as well.

THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON opens everywhere on May 1, 2015.

that makes total plot sense. as Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the Avengers will need to protect any location on Earth, whether its a studio set, a restaurant, or your local library.

Yeah but.....

Half the time they are shooting in a different country but it's used as a stand in for the USA. Besides the opening act being clearly in a different country I wonder what purpose to the story shooting in South Korea will serve. Will it clearly be South Korea in the movie?

Maybe Ultron could pay a visit to little Kim up north ;)
