CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Store by store, workers this week are transforming East Ninth Street into a stand-in for New York City’s famed 42nd Street as the stars of "The Avengers" movie finish filming at the NASA Plum Brook facility in Sandusky.
If you want to see the changes look fast because the street will be blown up in climactic battle scenes over the next four weeks.
The stars of the movie -- including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man); Chris Hemsworth (Thor); Chris Evans (Captain America); Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) -- and the rest will be in Cleveland for filming Aug. 15 on East Ninth Street from Euclid to Prospect avenues.
Patty Whitcher, executive producer of the Marvel Studios/Disney film, said fans of comics and movies will get an eyeful in coming weeks. "We have to keep people back a bit for safety reasons -- there will be explosions -- but they will be able to see the actors and their favorite Avengers on the street during the filming," she said in a press conference this morning. "There will be six days of mayhem on this street with lots of explosions and car flipping."
With that, it seems we may have some set images of our heroes in costume during the week. And with filming on the location commencing today, locals are already tweeting images, though mostly depicting preparation.
