Exciting news for all you Avengers fans out there. It appears that scenes for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ are currently being shot in Norwich. When I arrived for a meeting this morning at the University of East Anglia’s picturesque campus I was greeted by the sight of several young men going through hair and makeup in the Lawrence Stenhouse Building. I then was informed by some of the colleagues that filming was currently taking place at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.
I made my way down to the Sainsbury Centre around noon and witnessed a giant green screen that was erected at the back of the Sainsbury Centre. Security was tight, so it was difficult to get photos, but what I saw was several young men and women running up and down in front of a green screen. They seemed to be dressed like S.H.I.E.L.D. recruits. In front of the Sainsbury Centre were several sports cars, and I could just about make out a big circled red ‘A’ painted on the interior of the building.
Star fuckers and eager autograph hunters in attendance seemed to be disappointed by lack of Hollywood A-listers. There were no sightings of Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Downey Jr. or Scarlett Johansson when I was lurking about and many people, keen to take pictures and videos of the spectacle, were left disappointed by overzealous security personnel. Later Downey Jr. was sighted just before he flew off in a helicopter.
