Now THAT looks like an evil villain’s sinister lair.
In reality, it is the Bard Fortress in northern Italy, which BadTaste.it (via ComingSoon) reveals will serve as a shooting location for Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron beginning in March. The Governor of Valle d'Aosta, Augusto Rollandin, reportedly held a press conference revealing the Avengers news, though there was no clear indication about what would be filmed here. If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say that this ominous fortress could house Baron Wolfgang von Strucker and the forces of HYDRA, which are expected to be a major component of the sequel. I mean just look at this place!
Not one to be outdone, Zack Snyder also has been snooping around potential locations for his still-untitled Batman-Superman movie, even though it has been pushed back to 2016. We know that the movie expects to film in Michigan, but HenryCavillOnline tracked down a few images of Snyder specifically scouting the Eli and Edith Broad Art Museum on the campus of Michigan State. And when you are on the campus of MSU, you HAVE to pose with head men’s basketball coach Tom Izzo. Naturally.
As for the structure itself, if absolutely looks like something out of Kal-El’s home planet. Too modern for Metropolis, I think, but maybe Snyder needs a headquarters for an eventual Lex Luthor? That lobby (below) looks like it could be a board room for LexCorp. Or Wayne Enterprise?
Pre-production continues to roll on each blockbuster. The Avengers sequel arrives long before Snyder’s movie, opening everywhere on May 1, 2015. For now, Batman-Superman opens on May 6, 2016… though that date is written in sand, and the tide is always rising.
