Deciding to save the movie blogosphere from cannibalizing itself on what has proven to be a rather slow and boring day, Joss Whedon has taken time out of his busy schedule to record a video for the citizens of Seoul, South Korea, preemptively apologizing for the chaos and delays that the filming of The Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to cause in the very near future. Oh, and it gives us some content. So that’s cool.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to film from March 30 to April 14 in Seoul and, as /Film notes, “is expected to be pretty disruptive to daily life in the city. Major bridges and areas will be shut down for the shoot.” And as anyone who lives in Los Angeles or New York or Chicago can attest (as Whedon does in the video), any type of filming in your area can be a real pain. So hey, check out the cute little video:
Yeah, we know, it’s not exactly newsworthy, but hey, what can you do. Whedon’s funny and now we can talk about The Avengers. Have at it.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for a May 1, 2015 release date.
What do you think of Whedon’s video?
