Initial filming is currently underway on Marvel’s highly anticipated sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the production is so large that some of the actors aren’t even showing up until two months into production.  That’s what Chris Hemsworth revealed this weekend while at Wizard World Comic-Con, where he briefly discussed writer/director Joss Whedon’s follow-up.  While the actor obviously didn’t reveal any plot specifics—or anything of substance, really—he offered up some obvious yet still enticing nuggets about the superhero team-up and talked a bit about his shooting schedule.  Read his comments after the jump.

“Everything in [Age of Ultron] is ramped up, though. It kind of blew me away reading [the script]. I don’t know how Joss [Whedon] does it, but everyone has gone up another notch and the whole thing is bigger and more exciting and crazier. Yeah, he’s a genius.”

The actor also talked a bit about reuniting with his castmates, revealing his shooting schedule in the process:

“I’m really excited to start Avengers 2 in 2 months and get back on set. We’re going to meet in London and shoot there for 4 months, so I’m excited to get back together with everyone and catch up.”

We know that photography began in South Africa a couple of weeks ago and that the production will also be moving to Italy, the U.S., and South Korea in addition to other as-yet-undisclosed locations, but London will provide the base for the bulk of filming.  The Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters May 1, 2015.

    I hope this movie doesn’t take place in London (ala Thor 2). I get that filming in certain locations allows the studio save bucks, but for a feature like Avengers, they can’t let those limitations affect the plot.

    I felt there were a bunch of things wrong with Thor, but nothing bothered me more than the inability to shake the question “what are Thor and Jane Foster doing in the UK”.

    • enderandrew

      London will likely be all the green screen filming on private sound stages owned by Disney. The other countries listed are all the location shots.

      My thoughts exactly, i didn’t mind it in Thor 2 since most of the other films took place on US soil but i really don’t want the majority of the film to take place in London, the Avengers are a global team but they belong in New York and in the Avengers Tower. We need them to fight around the giant buildings in NYC :D

      • wsjbdu3

        The villains they fight are going to be a global threat not isolated to NYC. So if the villains were to always attack NYC it would kind of defeat the purpose of them being a global team. Besides we already got that battle in the last Avengers, and every single Spider Man movie.

        You don’t get it. It’s ‘merica, Fuck Yeah!

        Because other countries have created so many memorable super heroes…

    Didnt Joss say he rather not make it “louder” for the sake of it being a sequel but more grounded and emotional. Sounds like Thor is just delivering the generic sequel to a big movie speech

    I will say (even being British) I also hope that the Avengers 2 isn’t set over
    here. It was nice to see some home soil featured in Thor but, I agree the Avengers belong in New York. London is a world class city but there’s something about the high skyline of New York which sets the tone.

    One of these days, someone’s going to say their sequel’s intended to be more intimate & grounded, w/ less focus on CGI. But that day won’t be coming anytime soon.

  • poppincherry

    Bullshit!
    This movie will take place in a localized area with the principle characters kicking ass and cracking jokes.

  • cas

    sooooo, who gives a shit where they film something in an age where you can erect a coloured sheet on a basketball court and convince the whole world that youre on a distant planet called pandora…..

    i mean….. really…. what the f#ck are you people even talking about….? aaand to whom…?

    • pinkincide

      Because Thor 2 felt weirdly British. Colored sheets notwithstanding.

    • SenorApplesauce

      heh. I know Avengers, Cap2, and Avengers 2 will have a lot (some) shooting in Cleveland. Street level can become NYC (Avengers) or Washington (Cap2) pretty easily in post production.

  • HenryStark

    OOGA OOGA OOGA CHAKA OOGA CHAKA

  • Sean

    Good. I just hope its well over 2 hours long like the first Avengers movie.
