Industrial Light and Magic shows how the climactic battle scene in The Avengers came together

Maybe you have heard of a little movie called THE AVENGERS. I know, it was kind of an obscure release that only played in art house theaters. But, if you were lucky enough to see this intimate character film, you were probably impressed by the closing battle scene in the film.

The wizards responsible for this sequence were the folks over at Industrial Light and Magic and they have released a very cool little featurette showing how this scene came together. Now, I am fully aware that movies like THE AVENGERS require copious amounts of special effects, but seeing this scene broken down shows just how special these effects can be.

Take the four separate scenes and the massive amounts of technology that made this look like it was done using film, cameras, and some stunts and you find that there was a lot more at play behind the scenes. This little clip alone gives me a deep respect for the folks over at ILM. Bravo.

What an awesome and difficult job !

The result is just the greatest action sequence seen in a comic-book adaptation.
Before that, I think the top spot was occupied by the Doc Ock/Spidey battle in Spider-man 2. That train sequence was just the most exciting thing for a comic-book fan (until he looses his mask again and the whole Jesus Parker scene.)
Am I forgetting a better action scene from a comic-book movie ? Wolverine vs Lady Deathstrike was cool but nowhere near the epicness of Avengers or Spider-man 2. Also loved the

Also loved the plane rescue from Superman Returns but Superman fighting the fall of a plane isn't badass enough. What do you schmoes think ?

My favorite scene in the film. I dont know what I like more. Iron Man/ Cap lazer deflect or the Hulk/Thor nail and hammer.
Even the sounds of the lazers, and the hammer bashing faces. Oh I love this film.
