Thor Lends Captain America a Hand on The Avengers Set

Thor and Captain America on the Avengers Set

As always, SPOILERS BELOW.

So, it looks like Chris Hemsworth aka Thor has finally shown up on the Cleveland set (standing in for NYC) of Joss Whedon’s superhero team-up movie “The Avengers”. There’s a great video of Hemsworth in full Thor costume, hammer and all, fighting alongside Chris Evans as Captain America against stuntmen wearing those motion-capture doohickeys. I suspect some “alien”-ish CG will be used in the finished movie.

So yeah, The Skrulls, right?

In any case, watch the two Chris in action in video form, then grab some images from the set after that. Then, when you’re not all “Avengers” out yet, catch the assemblage on May 4, 2012, starring Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, and Cobie Smulders.

    In the beginning while Thor was sporting the sleeveless look his hair looked odd. Cap’s hair looks much darker too.

    That was awesome! However I have a feeling we’re not getting The Skulls person but maybe a cross between them and the Chituri that were in the Ultimates and Ultimate Avenger movies. You wouldn’t need full cgi characters for the Skulls, unless they’ve redesigned them like DC did with some of alien GLs.

      I could see that. I could live with a Skrull/Chituri amalgam. I really don’t see Marvel changing the asthetics of the Skrull. Their look is so iconic to the fans. Marvel knows what the fans want and usually deliver. My dream scenario would be The team is assembled to stop the Skrull invasion that has been brought to Earth by Loki and the cosmic cube. During a colossal battle Loki, on the retreat, controls Hulk via his sorcery like in the original comics. After a huge battle the remaining Avengers get Hulk to regain control of his mind and defeat Loki and The Skrull. I am so stoked to see this!!!

        The only reason I say it is because I don’t see the need for motion capture for the Skulls as prosthetics would’ve been enough. What I think they’re doing is going the GL alien route to make them less human, but still humanoid. So they can be thinner or taller or something. Think Tomar-Re’s build in the live action film.
        Sent on the go!

          I could see that. Hopefully we get a precursor to the full Invasion plotline that they could do in a sequel or something. It’s too bad that the FF isn’t part of the official Marvel movie universe. A crossover with the Skrull and FF would be awesome! SUPER-SKRULL!!!
