Marvel and Joss Whedon's superhero ensemble flick The Avengers is gradually filming away in Albuquerque, New Mexico. And while early promotion is expected in the coming weeks, I recently stumbled across potential reports from the secretive set. Twitter user Lionheart3rd, whose apparently working on the film, may have further confirmed an extraterrestrial life form villainizing the team, among other interesting tidbits. With a spoiler warning, read on below
First test explosion: Badassness!
Dargo'ing up the actors takes a bit
Scarlet came up to us and asked about our equipment. Funny watching her be impressed w/ us. She's pretty cool.
The crane shot of Hawkeye and Blackwidow is money.
Explosion 2: even badasser!
Watching them choreograph Cap beatin' up some aliens (or somethin) too cool.
The aliens use Jaffa staffs. Tel'c would not be pleased.
Everything is moving to the otherside of the set. It's funny watching Joss carry his chair.
Got the schedule for tomorrow, must try to be on that shift.
For those of you who geek over these things, they're using iPads to show ppl the shot lists w/ the CGI or a rough makeup of it.
Joss just did his example of an alien charging down set. Scary is not the first word I'd choose, nor the fifth.
Getting coverage w/ stunt doubles now. Suddenly a lot of shots are becoming clear.
While you're free to take these with a grain of salt, interestingly, the source's Twitter account has now been disabled; what could that mean? Anyhow, what do you think of the info?
