‘Avengers’ cast is heading to Seoul

Mar 27,2019
Three main cast members of Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” will visit Korea next month to promote the movie ahead of its release in the country, the movie’s local distributor said Tuesday.

The three actors - Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner and Brie Larson - and directors Anthony and Joe Russo will be in South Korea from April 14 to 15 to attend an Asian press junket in Seoul, the Walt Disney Company Korea said.

This will be Downey Jr.’s fourth visit to Korea in four years, and the first for Larson and Renner.

The visit will be part of the movie’s world promotional tour. Seoul was chosen to be the place for its Asian press junket, where journalists from 11 Asian countries will be invited.

“Endgame” is set to be released in North American theaters on April 26, while the date for its Korean release remains undecided. It depicts the battle between the Avengers’ surviving superheroes, who became Earth’s last hope after the incident in “Avengers: Infinity War,” and villain Thanos.
