Joss Whedon’s superhero sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron has taken over the streets of Johannesburg, South Africa. Unsurprisingly, some early set video from the shoot has already leaked out. The one we’ll share with you today is a video of a stunt sequence from the film, sadly devoid of any of the costumed crusaders, but a closer look reveals that it’s likely that a certain big green Avenger is behind the chaos.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron opens on May 1, 2015 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Paul Bettany, and James Spader. Hit the jump to watch the video.
“The great thing about this movie is that they are shooting Johannesburg as Johannesburg. Often you will find filmmakers will shoot in Johannesburg and portray the location as Los Angeles. This time around the first 10 minutes of the film will be of Johannesburg,” Gauteng Film Commission’s (GFC) Desmond Mthembu, told EWN.
