Iron Man Shows Up on the Avengers Set


Answering the question that some of you have been asking: Yo, what’s Iron Man doing while Captain America and Thor are battling bad guys on the Cleveland set (standing in for New York City) of Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers”? As it turns out, he’s there, too — or at least, he eventually showed up to do this part. Still no signs of The Hulk or Mark Ruffalo, though…


Robert Downey Jr. himself isn’t present and accounted for, but his mocap stunt double is, battling some mocap bad guys (who all looks, er, Asian for some reason). Is it just me, or does the way the bad guys are holding those staff weapon of theirs, it reminds me of the alien Jaffa warriors from the “Stargate” films?

“The Avengers” stars Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, and assembles for battle May 4, 2012.

    These spy pics are cool but I can’t wait to see some official footage released. Glad to see the triangular chest plate is in tact!!! Bring on some Hulk, Hawkeye and Black Widow!

    From all these set videos it looks like Loki and the Skrulls are gonna give The Avengers a run for their money!

    I’m really really wondering who Loki’s henchmen here will be in the final product.

    I Highly Doubt that it would be the Skrulls – a little over too fantastic. I got a hunch that it might be the Atlanteans.(Namor wink-wink). The Skrulls as far as i can remember nver used pole arms or staffs. Either the Atlanteans or renegade Asgardians)))

    nope it’s skrulls… they’ve already established there are ice giants in this universe, skrulls are hardly a stretch, plus the staff’s could be stand ins for guns of some kind
