To what seems to be one of the most eagerly anticipated sequels of the decade, there has been much speculation about where the new Avengers film will be shot and when it will be released, here at PopWrapped, we can provide you with
someof the details via Screen Daily
Since the film hasn’t even begun shooting yet, we only have news that filming will start early 2014, with a release date of 1st May 2015 – beware: this may be subject to change.
Incorporating Marvel’s best super-hero’s; The Avengers 2 will be filmed in the UK! Avengers 2 will be following in the footsteps of the upcoming Thor and Captain America films. This is still, quite surprising news, seeing as the main cast and crew are all based in America. I would say maybe it’s a change of scenery, but we all know the part CGI has to play! I’m sure the tax break has something to do with it too…
Filming will take place at Pinewood Shepperton Studios in Surrey, near the outskirts of London.
All Avengers are expected to return, with Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Solider all due on the silver screen before the yet unnamed second Avengers film. Robert Downey Jr. will next be seen reprising his role as Tony Stark’s alter ego Iron Man in Iron Man 3 – April 25/26th UK, 3rd May US, Chris Hemsworth takes back the reins of ‘the mighty’ Thor in Thor: The Dark World – with an expected release date of 30th October UK, 8th November US) and Chris Evans will come back as Captain America in Captain America: The Winter Solider. Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Its unlikely Tom Hiddleston will be back for Avengers 2, although Loki can be seen in the next Thor film!
