Concept Art For The Avengers’ SHIELD Heli-Carrier

8 Comments

Will SHIELD’s famous heli-carriers make an appearance in Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers”? It would appear so, at least according to these early concept artwork (via I09).

The designs look more “submarine”-ish than the SHIELD heli-carriers I’ve seen in the comics. As far as I know, the heli-carriers spent most of their time in the air, while these designs would seem to indicate they’re going to be spending just as much time on the water.

In any case, we’ll find out for sure when “The Avengers” opens in May 4, 2012.

    I don’t know about those propellers though, they look too dangerous for any aircraft to fly around and they couldn’t possibly be what is holding up the weight of the helicarrier. Maybe the propellers are just some sort of stabilizers while those holes under them are jet propulsion blasters,like sort of what Iron Man has that make him able to fly.

      Most likely that’s exactly how it will work. But the propllers are a must as they’re kinda iconic tothe look of the helli-carrier. I love the rounded hull.
