First Set Photo Unveiled from Director Joss Whedon's 'The Avengers'

April 26, 2011

The Avengers

Yesterday marked the first day of shooting on the much anticipated production of The Avengers from Marvel Studios and director Joss Whedon himself released a little statement about the exciting day. Well today, the hype machine seems to have one more piece of excitement to throw out there with the first official set photo from the superhero ensemble film. It's not action packed, and doesn't feature any of our costumed heroes together, but it's certainly a photo that will have you pumped and foaming at the mouth for it's release next year. Honestly, I can't wait to see how this turns out. Check out the first cool set photo below!

Here's the first set photo released from The Avengers:

The Avengers First Set Photo

Marvel’s The Avengers is the super hero team up of a lifetime. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. The star studded cast of super heroes including Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner will be joined by Cobie Smulders (“How I Met Your Mother") as Agent Maria Hill of S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as Tom Hiddleston and Stellan Skarsgård who will both reprise their respective roles as Loki and Professor Erik Selvig from the upcoming Marvel Studios’ feature Thor. Sound good?

    NO!! They should not use the same villain from Thor! Is Loki going to be their equivalent of Lex Luthor or General Zod?! Hulk should not be used as a villain. They should include Ant-Man and Wasp as well as SOME of the following villains: Baron Zemo, Collector, Count Nefaria, Egghead, Grandmaster, Graviton, Grim Reaper, Immortus, Kang, Korvac, Legion of the Unliving, Lethal Legion, Master Pandemonium, Masters of Evil, Morgan le Fay, Nebula, Space Phantom. Super-Adaptoid. Supreme Intelligence, Squadron Sinister, Taskmaster, Thanos, Ultron, Zodiac

        Nahhh...remember, this is the only way they can show the world that they exist and that they matter! Waaahhhhh..... Christ, some folks....sheesh. Whatever happened to giving an _informed_ opinion?

    This movie will have problems like ‘Spider-Man 3’ and ‘Iron Man 2’ with too many subplots, too many key characters, too little screentime for certain characters, etc. Everyone will be making these criticisms of this movie when it is released. As for you naysayers....people like you will be the same ones ripping Joss Whedon a new butthole if this movie isn't great...bunch of fakers.

      Hmmm...unfortunately, you might be right. Hell, it's already started--no one's seen the script or a finished scene, but the cries of "It's gonna suck (add whatever body part you choose)!!" has already begun. Remember when people used to WATCH movies before making a judgement about them?

    I'm new to this Avengers even though I read bits and pieces in comics in the past. But I'm trying to figure out how will Captain America join Thor and Ironman in present time? Captian America takes place during World War 2 in the upcoming movie? So does he NOT age? Time travel? Can anyone explain please? I am looking forward to this anyhow!
    • Dino
      Captain America gets frozen in the Antarctic ice and shield or the avengers finds him in present day in the same condition he was during ww2
