Joss Whedon Apologizes to Korea For ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

By March 28, 2014

This is probably one of the slowest news days of the year so far, and because of that, I’m about to present a video I likely wouldn’t have even mentioned if today were full of fresh new movie and TV-related stories to talk about.

We’ve known for a while that Joss Whedon would be filming (at least some of) Avengers: Age of Ultron in Seoul, South Korea, and now that the director of the third highest-grossing film of all time is on that country’s soil, he addressed its citizens via YouTube to apologize for the inconveniences he and his team are causing them.

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1st, 2015, and it’s hard to believe we’re only a little more than a year away from the end of Marvel’s Phase 2. I’m seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier this coming Monday night, and if you’ve been following the chatter about the film from people who have seen it, it sounds like that’s going to be a hell of a lead-in for Joss Whedon’s sequel. And don’t sleep on the utterly bizarre-looking Guardians of the Galaxy, which may have little to do with Age of Ultron, but will certainly play its own role in setting up Phase 3 of Marvel’s overarching plan.

Excited about Age of Ultron? I guess the better question would be: is there anyone reading this who isn’t excited about Age of Ultron?
