Avengers 2: South Korean Chase Scene Footage Reveals Possible Origin For Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch

Avengers: Age Of Ultron

New footage has surfaced online (via WorstPreviews) of shooting for “Avengers: Age of Ultron” in South Korea.

The shoot seems to be for a chase scene featuring Captain America hanging on the back of a truck. Here we get our first look at Cap’s costume in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” That’s a stuntman wearing it for this sequence, as Chris Evans doesn’t begin work on “Avengers: Age of Ultron” until after “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” hits theaters on April 4.

At the very end of the video, there’s a close-up shot of one of the extra trucks they had sidelined for the shoot. It’s emblazoned with the logo for a company called “U-Gin Genetics Infinite, R&D.” We know from previous reports that Seoul, South Korea is going to be represented as a city on the cutting edge of scientific technology in “Avnegers: Age of Ultron.” Could U-Gin be the big company that Ultron is trying to access tech from in his Korean fight scene with the Avengers?

It’s also worth noting that this genetic company could be used to explain Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch’s origin. In the comics, the twins are mutants, so their powers are simply written into their genetics. If Marvel isn’t allowed to use mutation to say that Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch were just naturally born with their powers, why not use a genetics company to modify their genes instead? Seems like the next best thing.
