In relating Avengers news, yesterday, I posted conceptual art for the film's SHIELD helicarrier and quinjet. At the request of the artist, who says his concepts aren't close the final product, I had to remove them from the site.


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 Laufeyson), and Stellan Skarsgard (Professor Erik Selvig), the film releases worldwide May 4, 2012!

Dynamo - 8/13/2011, 12:42 PM
YES! Lots and lots of destruction! That's what the movie needs! BLOW SHIT UP! BLOW SHIT UP!
ThreeBigTacos - 8/13/2011, 12:53 PM
Wow trolls are thumbs downing this article. Yes thumbs downing is a verb. Don't look at me like that.
thunderforce - 8/13/2011, 1:09 PM
More destruction please , hire M Bay for a few scenes lol .
Warcam - 8/13/2011, 1:19 PM
Hopefully they remember to replace that Cleveland Indians baseball poster in the 3rd pic :D
DCMarvelFreshman - 8/13/2011, 1:27 PM
@BooYah Indeed, after contacting him, he told me that the studio decided not to go with his designs, which is why they were in his portfolio. However, if you look at the concept poster from SDCC, you can see the helicarrier design is really the same as his concepts.
StreetProdigy - 8/13/2011, 1:33 PM
I live in Cleveland and visited the set yesterday. They were moving crushed cars around and drilling those wood pieces on the wreckage you can see in the last pic. If someone knows when they will be filming exactly reply to me and I'll try and go down their and take some pics for you guys.
Jefferys - 8/13/2011, 1:46 PM
@DCMarvelFreshman - Poor guy, hope they at least pick one of his designs, I enjoyed them especially the Quinjet - Which I thought was brilliant.

Could the Hulk caused all of this mess or is it something bigger? Cause I really want to know, around about, now!
DCMarvelFreshman - 8/13/2011, 2:01 PM
@Jefferys When he worked on the film, there wasn't even a script yet, so he doesn't feel that bad. But regarding these set pics, they're gonna be filming Monday, so we could find out more about the scene, then.
TayDee - 8/13/2011, 2:07 PM
the hulk was there! or thor
NeoBaggins - 8/13/2011, 2:08 PM
HULK is capable of this type of destruction, but it randomly spotted- like something is shooting some time of projectile.
Dev7 - 8/13/2011, 2:15 PM
Damn these set pics can be for any movie. I want to see the actors on that set location in full costume.
DCMarvelFreshman - 8/13/2011, 2:16 PM
@BooYah Hes telling truth, the final product can be seen in the SDCC poster. While they look similar to his designs, they are slightly different. The reason he doesn't want other sites posting his stuff because he doesn't want early designs passing for the final product; and evidently being sued. Though it is strange, because "concept" art is rarely the final product lol
DCMarvelFreshman - 8/13/2011, 2:39 PM
@BooYah No problem, thanks for commenting. Another trailer is being shown at D23 expo, and some are suggesting it'll be released online officially. Heres hoping we get a good look at the outside of the helicarrier.
bababoozer - 8/13/2011, 2:59 PM
Looks like Hulk will be pissed.
manthingnitsuj - 8/13/2011, 3:02 PM
@ELgUaSoN totally.
pucrepeap - 8/13/2011, 3:14 PM
So stoked
Supes17 - 8/13/2011, 3:15 PM
Im sure it will be a fun popcorn flick
marvel72 - 8/13/2011, 4:01 PM

@ ThreeBigTacos

i've notice it as well,its the marvel vs dc thing going on take a look at dc articles as well.
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 8/13/2011, 5:11 PM
Joss Whedon ain't playing


SuperDude001 - 8/13/2011, 5:22 PM
Hmmm...looks epic but not sure if it's actually the Hulk causing the destruction, guess we'll just have to wait till 2012 to see :/
MrBlueSky - 8/13/2011, 6:36 PM
Looks like the Hulk's gotten out.
superpooper - 8/13/2011, 6:38 PM
HULK CROSSING.
Tk421 - 8/13/2011, 6:41 PM
@StreetProdigy, I was up there today and they told us that filming on this street will start Monday. I have a friend who works in one of the banks right there and got a memo from the building owner saying not to call 911 if you hear or see explosions over the next few days...
Jefferys - 8/13/2011, 7:14 PM
@DCMarvelFreshman - When is the Disney Expo thingy and is anyone going to it so they can 'watch' the trailer and comment on it.

Man I hate living on an island with only water surrounding me. I get nothing good over here. I mean, even the Irish get something!
DCMarvelFreshman - 8/13/2011, 7:42 PM
@Jefferys I know a few people over the internet that are going:)
StreetProdigy - 8/13/2011, 8:05 PM
@TK421 Thanks, I was just at the Indians game and on my way back to the car I saw some of the wreckage at the lot they are keeping it at :P, thankfully I should be free monday so I'll head down there and get some pics and videos. btw did you hear about the explosions they are doing in Parma at the Chevy Powertrain building?
NeoBaggins - 8/13/2011, 8:05 PM
@BooYah Oh yeah, I completely erased that "fireball" thing from my mind. Maybe that's what's happening. I would expect more car damage if it were HULK. The side of buildings are torn down and singed. Guess we'll see.
SkrullWar - 8/13/2011, 8:08 PM
Looks nice,i hope that's for the other villian(maybe the Skrulls)
Tk421 - 8/13/2011, 8:11 PM
@StreetProdigy, I did, but I couldn't make it up there (I'm down in Cuy. Falls) My friend's parking garage is over looking the next street to close so we might get to see something better next week !
cherokeesam - 8/13/2011, 8:40 PM
"TITAN" all over the payphones.

Pretty damn sure that's deliberate.

Titan: the moon. The madman. The megalomaniac.

THANOS RISES
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 8/13/2011, 8:45 PM
HULK SMASH!
StreetProdigy - 8/13/2011, 9:49 PM
@TK421 Nice! Sounds like a sweet plan. I'm gonna try to make it to the set every free day I have and try and catch something awesome. Maybe I'll attempt to sneak on and touch RDJ's beard when he isn't looking lol
Tk421 - 8/13/2011, 11:07 PM
Screw Samuel L's script, I'm going for the eye patch !!!!
Guerillas - 8/14/2011, 4:19 AM
best movie of 2012! have given up on tdkr
8thDynasty - 8/14/2011, 12:36 PM
I wonder why we've pretty much SEEN the entire Batman movie through leaked footage, yet we haven't (or I haven't at least) seen one character in costume for this movie?
Jefferys - 8/15/2011, 12:04 AM
TK421 - Now that's a plan. How much do you want for that eye patch?

I'll give you $200 for it and since Australian is worth more at the moment you'd be a bit extra
