A "simulated Aircraft Carrier deck?" Of course, that must be the SHIELD Helicarrier. It's great to know they're looking for experienced men, rather than locals. What do you think?

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!
