Things go boom on the Cleveland set of The Avengers

Aug. 16, 2011by:

Cleveland is filling in for New York City for portions of THE AVENGERS and the crew is in town blowing shit up this week. Chris Evans was also spotted during filming so it looks like Captain America is in town as the mysterious forces attack. (I only wish I could explain a little bit more about what I know re: these "mysterious forces" but I fear the embargo gag has been forced too far down my throat...)

As we've seen with THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, any time you're filming a big movie in a public square, some pics and video are going to pop up online. And that's just what we have here.

In addition to the flashy fireworks show downtown, AVENGERS filming has also been taking place at the NASA Space Power Facility in Sandusky, OH, which will stand-in as some kind of SHIELD installation.

Filming is set to continue in Cleveland through the end of August with the production, including some of the cast, filming in actual New York City for just a few days this September.

I'm looking forward...

to the Avengers and all, but what the fuck is up with the unnecessary pictures and psuedo-news? Did this add to anything that was said before? It's a movie about superheroes saving the world, of course there is going to be explosions in it and Evans is one of the actors, whats new? That shot looks like it could be from any street in any city, what the fuck man?

That's the happiest I've ever seen a bunch of people running for their lives.

Why no spoiler alert? Now I know something in this movie blows up and I... oh wait, this isn't TDKR. Nevermind.

This isn't a knock on CG, just an observation

Everything's getting leaked out of Dark Knight Rises because there'll be so little CG. All real actors, sets, props. The Avengers will be able to tease us with whats to be in the film because only 10 guys in Korea will see the finished effects shots of Hulk, Iron Man, etc. before we get the trailers.

Cost efficient: "blow up Cleveland." This film will be more fun that THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.

No movie can't come soon enough then "The Avengers". Can't wait to see my most anticipated film of 2012.

Really excited to see more character development on Captain America and seeing Evans play him again. Also excited to see Ruffalo as Banner/Incredible Hulk, and to see Thor go head to head against Loki after the conclusion of 'Thor'.

Can't wait to see this. And agree with solitaire, Evans was a pleasant surprise and owned Cap as Hemsworth did with Thor.

perfect

I LOVE what they have Rodgers in, the pinstripe pants and buttun down shirt...a homage to his original time period. I have to admit, I wasn't sold on Evans as Cap, but the movie convinced me, and this is clearly going to be some further character development for him.

If you didn't say it's for Avengers, I'd have thought it's from Transformers 3. Can't wait for next year to come.
