It really seems as if no rock will be left unturned by the geek media. IO9 has posted the Avengers 2 Casting Call Sheet. It is fairly brief (no serious spoilers) and contain a little more info on the film. Check it out below:
Marvel Studios and The Walt Disney Studios are now in pre-production on the upcoming sci-fi themed superhero feature film "The Avengers: Age of Ultron", and casting directors are auditioning actors for starring, co-starring, and supporting roles. The film's photo doubles and stand-ins for the starring actors, as well as general extras and featured background actors will be cast closer to the start of filming. The locations where outdoor principal photography will take place are in and around London, England. Indoor sound stage filming will take place at Shepperton Studios. Shooting begins in February, 2014.
In "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" Loki is gone and the new villain will be the evil robot Ultron, who has the ability to keep upgrading his own strength, making him extremely fearsome. Tony Stark/Iron Man becomes the unwitting creator of Ultron. The brother-and-sister team of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch become the seventh and eighth members of The Avengers. Quicksilver has extreme speed, while Scarlet Witch can cast spells and has telekinesis ability. Black Widow and Hawkeye will be key figures in the film.
IO9 did have this disclaimer: “To be totally clear, it’s a little unclear from the site what is actually gleaned from a putative casting sheet and what is just simple speculation; most of what’s in the synopsis could be fairly readily extrapolated from comments Joss Whedon has made in recent interviews”.
Take from it what you will Maniacs.
