The Avengers 2 to shoot in the UK

First Captain America and Thor: The Dark World , and now The Avengers 2 .

It seems Marvel and Joss Whedon love filming in the UK, and that's set to continue as The Avengers 2 will start shooting in the UK in early 2014.

Screen Daily reports that pre-production on the sequel to the biggest superhero movie ever made (and third biggest movie of all time) will begin later this year at Shepperton Studios, with a shoot to follow in early 2014.

It's a relationship that's obviously paid dividends for all involved, as Guardians of the Galaxy is also set to start filming in the UK this summer.

The Avengers 2 is set to open worldwide in 2015.
