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…

POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW

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.
