‘The Avengers 2′ Will Shoot Next Year In London

The Avengers 2 Release Date The Avengers 2 Will Shoot Next Year In London

Nick Fury and the top secretive S.H.I.E.L.D. organization successfully defended Earth from an alien invasion in New York last summer by assembling The Avengers, and the onscreen team-up proved successful for fans, critics and the box office with a $1.5 billion worldwide haul. Now, it’s up to Tony Stark to once again to take the first step forward in launching “Phase Two” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) this summer, followed by friends, new and old, over the next two years, leading up to the next big event.

After Iron Man, Thor and Captain America all get another chance in their own feature, Marvel will introduce new characters with Guardians of the Galaxy, then bring them all together in summer 2015 for Joss Whedon’s The Avengers 2. But it’s not just the characters and stories that share connective threads.

Captain America: The First Avenger was the first Marvel Studios film shot in the UK at the Pinewood and Shepperton studios. The studio returned to shoot Alan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World in the fall, and is returning again this summer for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. As Screen Daily has learned, Marvel Studios will bring Whedon and co. back there yet again for The Avengers 2 and local production crews couldn’t be happier, being able to continue their relationship with the studio, working on the sequel to the third biggest box office success of all-time.

By comparison, The Avengers shot in Ohio, at Albuquerque Studios and various other locations across the U.S. Iron Man 3 shot mostly in North Carolina with some production taking place in Miami, Florida and China, and Captain America 2 begins shooting this summer in Ohio as well.

Both Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor: The Dark World saw loads of set photos surface online from outdoor shoots, so assuming The Avengers isn’t all inside the soundstages of Shepperton and Pinewood, expect the same unofficial reveals come early 2014, when the still untitled The Avengers 2 begins principal photography.

Iron Man 3 releases May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014The Avengers 2 on May 1, 2015 and Ant-Man on November 6, 2015.

  1. Right now, Marvel is on top of the game and can do no wrong. I can’t wait for all of the Phase 2 movies… starting with IM3 next month.

  2. I cannot wait for this movie to start shooting and to come out!!!! Will RDJ be a part of it though?

    • ‘Course he will.

      • I hope so, but.. we may only have Tony Stark.. and not Iron Man.. but only War Machine..maybe.. I’m confused.. See the movie..

    • Count on it.

    • If not we still have War Machine

      • I don’t care war machine in A2 or not .I want only iron man.

  3. I love marvel! Despite being a life long superman fan. I love marvel well actually I love both hHaha that said I can not wait for phase two! In particular Thor and now guardians cuz of Chris Pratt mainly. I’m not too knowledgable on the guardians.
    And of course avengers 2 is gonna blow us away again!

  4. insert subtitle here “Avengers 2! Damn that was awesomer!”

    • ;)

  5. They HYPE for Avengers 2 is starting sooner than I think hahaha…
    but THAT’S GREAT!
    I’m looking forward for Cap 2 and his reunion with Bucky, as for GoG… I’m actually looking forward to see Rocket and Groot instead of the other human characters haha

  6. Iron Man seem all but scheduled to go into space will the team follow in the next outing?

  7. Very cool.

    It’s interesting how many Marvel movies are shooting in other parts of the world now: IM3 was partly shot in China, Thor is being filmed in the UK, along with GotG and now, Avengers 2…

    • They need to shoot them in Canada!

      • The UK can handle it. They must be getting good tax breaks or something, either that or they are just taking adavantage of our awesome film studios. (^-^)

        • Could be reusing similar sets, prop rooms, personnel, etc. Cheaper to keep people and equipment, etc. in one place.

          • true, but the UK is no stranger to big films shooting there. The original “Star Wars” trilogy, “Indiana Jones”, “Alien”, “Aliens”, the “Harry Potter” films, Bond films etc…. It’s just following a long tradition of filming in the UK. No reason not to. In fact, it seems the nigher the concept, the more likely it is to end up filmed in Elstree, Pinewood, Leavesden etc…

            If anything it’s Canada, Austrailia, New Zealand, South Africa, Prague etc… that have been the increasingly popular alternatives.

            • *sigh* “Higher”

  8. I jus hope ppl. Will accept rocket n groot…since a lot of ppl. Aren’t familar with gotg.

  9. Oh Please! let Nic Cage be Dr Strange! that would be AWESOME!

    • U can be serious …. Viggo all the way

      • I meant u can’t be serious

      • Viggo in one of these movies would be mind-blowing.

    • I actually see that happening, Ghost Rider was just not the part for him. Viggo is not a bad choice but Cage looks the part also and he has the attitude, come on he already played Strange on the Sorcerer’s Apprentice!

      • Hey I never thought about the Sorcerer’s apprentice… nice one. Wasn’t that also made by Disney? Maybe they would want Cage…

        • This may be possible. Disney does like Cage… National Treasure anyone?

        • @ Everybody that is reading tbis!!!!!

          NO Noc Cage in any Marvel Studio movies! He is just not a superhero type actor!! Let DC have him for something.

          • Let no one have him for nothing. Cage is a terrible actor imo.
            He hasn’t been in a good movie since National Treasure.

          • I’m not sure why everyone is so harsh on Nic Cage, he is not that bad. I know that he is not a great actor but he could surprise us with this role that seems, IMO, perfect for him.

    • Strange was a perfect fit for David Hasselhoff back in the 80′s. I’m cool with either Viggo or Cage.

      • Viggo has look n he could pull off saying some of stranges lines cage would just sound to funny to watch. N I wouldn’t take it serious.

      • You just blew out my mind there with Hasselhoff. Wasn’t he Fury?… Still I think that he would have been a better Reed Richards than Strange.

    • I could see him as Strange, he would bring a different range to the part.

      • They’d need someone to do a long-term contract and Redford isn’t that guy – he has too much else going on.

    • I believe that the perfect additions here would be Cage as Strange and Fillion as AntMan, that would get me and the general audience ready for Phase 3.

    • Of course they could use Cage’s charisma! Strange is not recognised by the General Audience they need something to bring people to see the movie.

  10. AVENGERS 2 : Whats that Crap from DC?

    AVENGERS 2 : Justice League of nothingness.

    Avengers 2 : Kicking Butt and taking Names C.Kent and B.Wayne.

    Avengers 2 :LMAO @ DC JL

    Avengers 2 : You will come and watch!

    • Avengers 2…Billion.

    • Avengers 2: Coulson reloaded

      • I like this :)

    • Avengers 2: Explaining the Tesseract

      • .. and Hulk controlling his rage… and Thor getting to Earth with the bridge destroyed… and the Chitauri sudden death.. and the communication w/o earpieces..

    • Avengers 2 Geeks 1 Cap

  11. I could totally see any Marvel Movie being shot in Berlins Studios in Germany. Those movie have great looks!

  12. Avengers 2: Avenge Harder
    Avengers 2: The Search for More Money

  13. i think it’s gonna be a pretty awesome
    i wonder if they would ever use Arcade has a super villain(in later avengers movies)

  14. I’m going to keep recommending Aiden Gillen (Game of Thrones, TDKR) for Doctor Strange. As Little Finger… he already looks the part.

  15. The sequel probably won’t have the number 2 in its name! :D

  16. Avengers 2: This is the Sequel
    Avengers 2: Still no Spiderman
    Avengers 2: Still no Wolverine
    Avengers 2: Still no F4
    Avengers 2: Here you can take these C-list heroes that only comic readers know

  17. So for sure Thanos will be the next antagonist?

  18. What they need to do since Thanos will be in this movie, is bring the Hulk in at the right time to save the day! I see Thanos doing some major damage on the others as the battle begins or at least making it hard on them to where it would seem that they are about to lose the battle. I see it this way, Thanos not truly aware of Hulks existence in this movie, you know, since he only appears when Bruce changes, thinks he has the upper hand with strength and all that and gets over confident that his victory is inevitable. Though Hulk went with Stark in IM3, it would show him as leaving the city because of the headaches of it all and taking off and not wanting to be used for the Hulk in him and just wanting peace and quiet to keep stress levels down and since now knowing he was tracked so easily, he makes it harder to be found. Anyway, as Thanos is battling the others, Hulk is on some remote island with not much technology to the real world so is not aware of what’s going on. During the battle or maybe at the start, Thanos captures Thor by setting him up in a trap by taking advantage of his will to battle so easily leaving only Captain America, Ironman. Fury and his phase 2 army that he had to deploy, and all other team members to fight a losing battle. Stark knowing they need the Hulk and knowing he would not find him so easily, leaves the battle after almost being torn apart during a battle with Thanos. With parts of his armor everywhere, bruised and battered and not able to communicate with the others, and masked by a cloud of smoke, Ironman flies off in search of Hulk. The others unaware that Stark left the scene, assume that Thanos either defeated him or captured him after seeing the damage Thanos dealt on Starks armor. Now only Captian America and the others are left to fight. After giving it a good try and seeing some of the team fall, Thanos eventually has Captain America call for retreat causing them to go into hiding to regroup and come up with a plan of attack as Thanos henchmen search for them.
    Ironman remembering something Bruce once said jokingly about just moving to some tech free island and live in a cave made of some sort of element Bruce states which Tony never really thought twice about and brushed it off as just a laugh. Maybe some sort of rock mixture or maybe some sort of exotic plant, native to only to certain islands that in Theory could mask Hulks Gamma signature making him virtually invisible if you didn’t know where and what to look for. As Stark recalls the conversation he has Jarvis seek out islands that are specific for this type of element or plant life and virtually no tech, and comes up with 3 possibilities and flies towards them barely able to keep from passing out. He comes to the first island only to be told by Jarvis’s scans that it does not contain enough of the element needed to successfully mask Bruce, so he flies off to the other locations. Stark comes to a fork in the road. Faced by the remaining 2 islands in opposite directions. Jarvis scans show that both island had high potential at hiding the Hulk completely. Faced with power loss, Stark has to make a decision as to which way to go and choses. Next you’ll see Stark approach an island, as he begins to pass out and his suit loses power, he crashes to the ground and passes out. The others come up with a plan to free Thor behind the back of the over confident Thanos. Eventually they succeed in freeing him, but Thor is very weak and unable to fight till he gains his strength. On the island, you see stark being carried over the shoulders of some person and out of his suit only to open his eyes and see a blurred image of the person legs as they step, only to pass out again and awake on a cot of some sort in the cave with bruce and explains what had happen. Feeling that he left the team when they needed them most, Bruce decides to go back to fight for all his friends that he felt he let down and for humanity that needs him and the Hulk, Bruce puts his smarts to use also, after hearing about how Thanos bashed stark, so he and Stark come up with a counter that would give Ironman an edge be it some sort of laser or a something that would make his suit even stronger. They finish it, pack up and leave to join the others. While on the way, the others are gearing up for there final battle as Thanos has discovered there strong hold. Thor is back on his feet, but in there eyes, theres no sign of Ironman or Hulk. So feeling that this may be there last battle, they’re going to go out fighting and to the death as they confront Thanos. Not sure if War Machine will be in the pic, but if he does, then he should be shown with a different suit of Armor. One built for war. But even with him coming in, he would be beat up as well since he would not have the upgrades that Bruce and Stark would create. As the battle happens and it seems that to the Team that all is about to be lost, you hear a loud supersonic thunder maybe some music like ACDC’s back in black, Starks usually comic relief message to the crew, like did you miss me and as they say there welcomes to Stark, he says, you haven’t seen nothing yet, then you in a brief silence, you hear a big loud roar in the distance within a cloud of smoke, everyone stops, turns and looks, Thanos turns as well, and comes out of the smoke running towards Thanos, throwing things out his way with a very angry Face, comes the Hulk, Hulk smash! He attachs Thanos as you see them go at it where in this Film Hulk is giving him a good beat down that Thanos did not see coming. Jumps in the rest of the team and they all take down Thanos and his men. What a happy ending that would be. I love those endings when things seem all lost, then here comes someone that totally turns the table and the Villian is totally taken off guard and meets his match face to face and is left wondering what the hell happened!
