Avengers: Age of Ultron has been filming in Seoul, South Korea this week, and specifically there have been a lot of filming on Mapo Bridge, as we've seen multiple shots of Hawkeye, [Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch](movie:1081109), and Captain America filming scene there. But today, it was reported that a dead body was found in the waters underneath the bridge. Did a filming accident just kill someone?

The set location had been closed from 6:00 AM to 5:30 PM, and a set security guard found the floating body, which South Korean police officers identified as having been dead for two weeks, and since the crew had only been filming for a total of two days, there was no correlation of the death to the movie filming.

Security was tight on set according to There were well over a hundred private security guards, 160 South Korean police officers, and dozens of volunteers.

Surprisingly, however, Mapo Bridge is a very popular suicide spot, with the Korean government even having posted lit-up LED signs saying "The most shining moment of your life has yet to come" and "Your worries will feel like nothing when you get older."
