Joss Whedon lets us know that The Avengers begins filming today

04.25.2011

Yesterday may have been Easter, a time when many people are searching for hidden eggs or gorging themselves on ham, but director Joss Whedon wasn't resting - he was busy prepping THE AVENGERS. Whedon checked in to the interwebz yesterday to confirm that the superhero crossover movie starts shooting today. Here's his message to fans on Whedonesque:

Tomorrow we start shooting (I THINK I'm legally permitted to say that). Day one. That's right. We'll be shooting the pivotal death/betrayal/product placement/setting up the sequel/coming out scene, at the following address:

[Marvel Lawyers rush in, take Joss's keyboard, blowtorch a picture of his family like in "Stormy Monday", drink his milkshake, leave the seat up, fluff his pillows, violently unfluff his pillows, leave]

Went too far. My bad. Anyhoo, it should be a fun day, followed by the eighty thousand other fun days it will take to finish this. I'll be checking in from time to time, if there's news or I crave attention (i.e. am awake) . None of it will be Avengers news -- I have some very denty pillows to remind of that -- but I may have tidbits. (They're not about Firefly. I should say that up front, if only to protect Sis Mo from the HATORZ.)

So wish me luck. DO IT! LUCK! NOW! I'm off to finish some Buffy pages, and then figure out what the movie is about already. I'm pretty sure it's about the Justice League [Marvel Lawyers re-enter, unspeakability occurs] or possibly something else. I'll get it. I've been looking forward to this. For about 46 years.

Catchphrase!

Should be an interesting month for sneaky photographers in New Mexico to see who can get a shot of some of the cast shooting together...

With the epic early reviews for Thor and Cap in the pipe, this movie is going to be unstoppable. RDJ might be right...biggest movie ever.

That was funny and off the wall. Maybe a little TOO funny and off the wall. I am hoping Joss Whedon is a bit more serious about the product and doesn't let his excitement turn the Avengers into something goofy. Good luck Joss.

heh

Whedon is always good for a laugh. Hope this all works out for him and that not too much meddling will go on (cause we all know there will be some).

I hope its good, but really

how could even he mess this up. I mean we know nothing he has ever done on his own has done really well. Anything that had success (buffy) was already a established comic book and movie, that he just adapted to hiw own liking, all of his other stuff were disasters financially (which is all that matters), so at least they gave him this big property that will make oney reagardless of how crappy or good it is. So lets hope his history doesnt bring this down in a blaze of glory.

Check your facts dude, birdman13
is right! Besides Angel was on for 5 seasons and even Fox admits axing Firefly was a near-sighted mistake.

Wonder Twins Activate - Form Of...AWESOME

This reminds me of how Joss reported on the 1st day of shooting of "Serenity" back in March 2004.

"...kicked off filming today w/ Mal's death scene...Whoops!.." lol

I think w/ Joss @ the helm...the Avengers will kick mighty ass!

In Joss we trust! Avengers is in the best hands possible. Just going to sit back and let the hype and enjoyment build.

Can't wait. If it weren't for Dark Knight Rises, this would be my most anticipated movie of next year. Or maybe the Hobbit. Oh, who cares. 2012 is going to be a great year for movies.

How can you NOT BE excited for this. It's the freakin' Avengers all in one movie!

Epic doesn't even describe how great this movie is going to be.

I hate his overt attempts to be funny in this blog. Just stick to writing from the heart, and leave comedy to the comedians, dude!

...

my only concern is, while I am a fan of Joss's stuff...he really has no experience directing A-list stars...now he's got an ensemble in his hands...we'll see.
