Images & Vague Details For The Avengers' Shoot In New York's Grand Central Terminal
Though the set images aren't too revealing, a few vague details for The Avengers regarding recent filming in New York City's Grand Terminal have been revealed. Check it out!
Readying for tomorrow's filming in Cleveland, Ohio, where East Ninth Street has been altered to mock New York City's busy 42nd Street, the production crew for Marvel Studios' The Avengers were filming on-location in The Big Apple today. The crew was spotted at the actual 42nd street of New York City, inside the Grand Central Terminal station.
While the images, courtesy of a few New Yorkers and a crew member, depict the camera & lighting set-up as well dozens of extras, the scenes filmed apparently depict New Yorkers fleeing the lobby of the terminal station, evidently escaping a disaster. And at some point during the sequence, someone or something will either fly or be thrown through the "rigged" windows.
What's quite interesting is that, among the many "NYC" props on Cleveland set, theres signage for one of the entrances to the Grand Central Station. So we can assume that that whatever disaster caused the wreckage on 42nd street, may coincide with people fleeing inside the terminal. What do you think? I think this will be one helluva climatic action sequence.
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!
