Production continues in Italy today on Marvel Studios’ “Phase Two” capper, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and we’ve got some photos, courtesy of CineFilos, that show off outdoor sets being constructed. The scene allegedly uses Italy as a backdrop for an Eastern European country and involves Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye, Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver with early word suggesting that Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow will arrive a bit later in the shoot.
Written and directed once again by Joss Whedon, Avengers: Age of Ultron will also see the return of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans with James Spader playing the film’s iconic comic book villain.
Update: BadTaste.it has more images from the Valle D’Aosta, Italy shoot, including some from Fort di Bard, which has been covered in fake snow and appears to be doubling as some kind of mercenary base. Check them out below!
The site also suggests that, in addition to the characters listed above, the outdoor scene being prepped to shoot today also involves Iron Man and Hulk (using stand-in actors) as well as characters named “Doru” and “Lilian.”
