'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' Is Headed To Johannesburg, South Africa Not Cape Town

Over a year ago we got word that Marvel was scouting out locations in Cape Town, South Africa for The Avengers 2. Then it got quite until recently when it was confirmed that South African casting director was announced. Many assumed this ment that Cape Town was the town that Marvel was going to use....not the case.

According to Channel 24 it seems Marvel has passed on Cape Town and decided to go with Johannesburg, South Africa.
“We’re thrilled that Marvel Studios is bringing a major motion picture project to Johannesburg, and we’re committed to showing them the very best our region has to offer. We are excited to host Marvel; strengthens Johannesburg’s position as a worldwide film production centre with first class facilities and production support. It also has a very positive impact for the region and is a great opportunity for the city to be showcased to a worldwide audience.”
