Marvel Studios recently announced that many of the key sequences of the sequel to Marvel's The Avengers will be shot in South Korea, in the capital city of Seoul. The movie is called Avengers: Age of Ultron and will return the major cast and characters from the original film. The sequel is set to be released on May 1, 2015, and filming in Seoul is good news for South Korea as the production will bring many new jobs and industry to the local economy.

The president of Marvel Studios and producer of the Avengers sequel, Kevin Feige, said of the filming, "South Korea is the perfect location for a movie of this magnitude because it features cutting-edge technology, beautiful landscapes and spectacular architecture. 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."

The movie will be directed by Joss Whedon and the cast includes Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, and Jeremy Renner. A new addition to the cast will be James Spader as Ultron.
