Actual Budget For The Avengers Revealed?

Despite reports of Marvel and Joss Whedon's highly-anticipated film The Avengers having an odd budget of around $170 million, recent reports indicate a much higher and plausible budget. Make the jump and check it out!

A couple months ago, back in May, it was reported that Marvel Studios' Joss Whedon-directed ensemble film, The Avengers, would have an estimated budget of $170 million, spending about $30 million alone in Ohio, where production is currently underway. However, in a recent interview excerpt with the Cinematographer for the highly-anticiated film, Seamus McGarvey, via Fuji Film from International Exposure magazine, the budget listed seems more plausible.

Armagh-born McGarvey - currently in New Mexico shooting a $260m Marvel Comics' extravaganza, The Avengers - has come a long way for the kid who first got his film break when as a student at the local Christian Brothers school, he was given a Super 8 camera by an inspirational teacher.

Now, does $260,000,000 seem a bit more likely, compared to the budget of the studios' recent films - Iron Man 2 ($200m), Thor ($150m), and Captain America: TFA ($140m)? And for the sake of argument, $260m is only 10 million more than the budget for Warner Bros' much-anticipated film The Dark Knight Rises, which holds a $250 million budget. What do you think?

If this budget is in fact legit, Marvel's The Avengers will mark a place on the map of most expensive movie ever made, right below Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End ($300m), leveled with Walt Disney's Tangled ($260m), & above Spider-Man 3 ($258m).

Marvel's The Avengers picks up when an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security. And Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Under Joss Whedon's direction, and with an ensemble cast including Chris Evans (Steve Rogers), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Chris Hemsworth (Thor Odinson), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff), Clark Gregg (Agt. Phil Coulson), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Tom Hiddleston (Loki) & Stellan Skarsgard (Professor Erik Selvig), with Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts) rumored, it hits 5/4/12!
