Director reveals he 'wanted the world perspective on the Avengers'
Director Joss Whedon has said the forthcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron has a “global” feel and that he wanted to bring a wider perspective to the characters.
Whedon revealed a number of the locations that the sequel was made in an explained why he decided to film in the various countries in an interview uploaded to the Marvel’s YouTube channel.
“Up in the Italian Alps,” said Whedon, discussing the first of the settings. “We were in Seoul, Korea. We were in Johannesburg. We shot a little in Bangladesh. Then all over England.”
“This is a very global film,” added the director. “We wanted the world perspective on the Avengers. They’re being the Avengers and that’s a global thing and it doesn’t make everybody love them, so we wanted to see both sides of that.”

Scarlett Johansson also returns as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye with the additional support of Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill. James Spader, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Paul Bettany will also appear.
