'Avengers 2' spoilers suggest possible unexpected appearances

According to Flickering Myth on Friday, Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" was shooting at Norwich’s University. This location was converted to an Avengers academy of sorts and even an ensemble of what looked to be some uniformed recruits. Also set reports have been saying there could be a couple of new appearances in the movie.

The whole ensemble of the typical actors from the previous "Avengers" movie were all present and accounted for on set as well as "Captain America: The Winter Soldier's" Anthony Mackie, who portrayed the Falcon and B.J. Britt, who played Agent Triplett. However, Mackie had once mentioned that he wasn't going to be in the "Avengers" sequel and Triplett's presence seems to be somewhat telling of Agent Phil Coulson's return to the big screen after his demise in "The Avengers" at the hands of Loki. This is, however, quite speculative.

Set photos have also made their way online, one of which showed an amused Robert Downey, Jr. holding what looked to be a "Chef" lunch box. For those who aren't aware of the film, Downey, Jr. works with his "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2" cohort Jon Favreau in a film about a professional chef that looses his job and starts his own food truck business.

Among the set photos appears to be a blurred set of extras for the film posing what may look like "Avengers recruits." If some have seen the workout attire seen at some police academies, one can get an idea of what these recruits may also look like. Also, some other photos of Chris Evans in his Captain America outfit being haphazardly hidden by a guy with what may be a "spoiler-free" umbrella.

The heroes in this film oppose a quite formidable foe by the name of Ultron played by James Spader and marks the beginning of the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is scheduled to be released come May 1, 2015.
