Body Found Near ‘The Avengers’ Set

Joss Whedon Avengers Filming Seoul

“The Avengers” sequel’s filming schedule has encountered some unfortunate trouble and it has nothing to do with the traffic delays that Joss Whedon had  apologized for last week.

While filming on Seoul, South Korea’s Mapo Bridge, the cast and crew of the Marvel superhero pic were unaware that officials were retrieving a dead body from the nearby water. The bridge is unfortunately is a popular location for suicide attempts.

The body was reportedly two weeks old, so it had nothing to do with the production.

    This is somewhat disturbing, but I bet it was Loki.

    Troubling here is the continued “unawareness” of our world — be it South Korea, North Korea or America. Our alleged, or supposed, people of responsibility always seem to be “unaware” of things, i.e. Chris Christie with his own bridge troubles. The fact that movie producers can be unaware of circumstances in their immediate vicinity continues to display the vapid thoughtlessness of the entertainment industry. The fact that said movie is about yet another fantasy “superhero” is yet another strike against the thought process of the entertainment industry. Many of us live in real world where we would notice a dead body if one were in our vicinity. The adolescent fantasies of frat boys and sorority girls who have never grown up is what is driving the entertainment industry and continuing to contribute only to the decline of culture, society and civilization in America and across the world.

    “…so it had nothing to do with production.”

    “NOTHING to do with production.”

    Where’s the news in this? I can’t seem to find it.
