Possible Revealing Reports From The Set Of The Avengers Emerged!

Potentially further confirming Skrulls, or some alien-life form villainizing Marvel and Joss Whedon's The Avengers, make the jump to check out vague reports from the set!

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?


    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. With director Joss Whedon at it's helm, and 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), with Tom Hiddleston (Loki), and Stellan Skarsgard (Professor Erik Selvig), the film releases worldwide May 4, 2012!

    Woah, I hope these reports are true, because if so, then this movie might just be Marvel's best yet...
    RorMachine - 6/8/2011, 5:31 PM
    Well, if he is really working on the movie that pretty much confirms the Skrulls and or Kree..although it has already been "pretty much" confirmed already. I wish Marvel would release something official soon, the movie is shooting a while now.

    Isn't Thanos going to be in this as one of the bad guys??
    DukeAcureds - 6/8/2011, 5:35 PM

    krypton38 - 6/8/2011, 5:49 PM
    A pity marvel don't have the rights for Dr Doom. That would be cool, Avengers versus an army of Doombots

    Da poo poo platter aint got frick on dis.'



    continuezero - 6/8/2011, 6:31 PM
    Man I just hope they do some team up moves using their abilities. Like if Hulk tosses Cap and his Shield somewhere...(assuming Hulk isn't bad the whole time) or if Thor and Iron Man teamed up for something bad ass. Kinda like Ultimate Alliance...tag team moves were awesome...
    valeriesghost - 6/8/2011, 6:39 PM
    I think this guy needs grammar lessons
    marvel72 - 6/8/2011, 6:40 PM

    WHERE'S REPORTS ON HELMETS!!! I WANT HELMETSSSSSSS!!! :D :D :D
    screechop - 6/8/2011, 6:42 PM
    beyond pumped for this movie, if anybody can direct a group dynamic its Whedon. Look at Firefly, Serenity and Dollhouse. Each of them have loads of characters and great chemistry between them.
    AVEN - 6/8/2011, 6:46 PM
    OMG!! damn dirty skrulls...
    Ghostt - 6/8/2011, 6:49 PM
    whats wrong with 'badasser' ?
    C0nan - 6/8/2011, 6:53 PM
    So.... if not scary then...what? Funny?

    Anyway this is SOO exciting! Geekgasm time!!

    I have no clue how TDKR beat out this movie in Hype. I have been waiting for a movie like this to come out since I was 12.
    RunDTC - 6/8/2011, 7:12 PM
    I am not familiar with Whedon's work except for his work on "Astonishing X-Men", which I thought was fantastic. and actually got "Serenity" from my local library and plan to watch it this weekend. but anyway, back to what I was getting to. what if....Loki, Skrulls, Kree, AND Thanos were all involved as villains for the film? I know that seems hard with a budget of only $150 million but still. THAT would be cool.
    superotherside - 6/8/2011, 7:12 PM
    probably the skrulls? if so that's awesome! ;)
    nld3 - 6/8/2011, 7:18 PM
    TOO MUCH SPOILER IN TOPIC LINK!
    ClosetNerd - 6/8/2011, 7:31 PM
    Are they following the storyline from the Ultimates? Skrulls instead of those other random shapeshifters... I'd prefer seeing a big baddies at the end to go along with an invasion.

    Stargate reference!

    i actually really hope that skrulls arent in this, or that if they are they are explained as inhabitants of the nine realms or something thorish. with everything going on in this movie, i think aliens would just be too much for non comic readers to digest. as least from iron mans POV, he will already have to handle asgard n everything thor. why not incorporate villains completely from that so that everything fits together a bit more and everyones not going "OK, so we got iron man, a jolly green giant, a super soldier, a lightning god and his evil brother, AND ALIENS? i know asgardians n frost giants etc r technically aliens anyway but skrulls would be different; theyd be knew to thor too. all these colourful ppl on camera fighting an army of green men too, might be a lil too much for some lol. or it could be EPIC, what do i know lol?
    croniccris - 6/8/2011, 8:01 PM
    PLEASE LET IT BE THANOS!!!
    kingmonkeyman - 6/8/2011, 9:08 PM
    I hope Mr. Impossible from the planet Poppup is the main antagonist. Shape shifting Poppupians are waay cooler than shape shifting Skrulls
    RunDTC - 6/8/2011, 9:10 PM
    @Xenix: well they don't have "Firefly". is it really necessary to understand the movie? I thought it could be viewed as a stand-alone.
    luckylu - 6/8/2011, 9:28 PM
    booo shoulda saved the skrulls for the 2nd or 3rd( if these reports confirm rumors)
    DCMarvelFreshman - 6/8/2011, 9:28 PM
    Marvel is no joke. That guy's Twitter account is Gone! Legitimacy has shown itself!
