Because NM doesn’t play host to pappers or stalkerazzi (like those fiends pictured in thumb 4) nor well publicize when & where we have gaggles of worldwide superstars (good deal?) big cities (even Cleavland) still have us beat for all the great set pics.
Here from NYC, courtesy of my brother from another mother, are a boatload of Labor Day weekend pics of the WHOLE AVENGERS cast all suited-up.
Though just a babe himself, remember my beloved uses A LOT of salty language not suitable for young readers…ENJOY the pics and save your dlisted reading enjoyment to times away from preschool eyes, like at WORK.
Here are a few thumbnails from Michael K‘s gallery with which you can whet your eyes anytime…
As the biggest production get of the outgoing NM State Film commission nay the biggest production get in the history of the state the Avengers have brought New Mexico global recognition, excitement, jobs and an influx in tourism!
Now CHECK-OUT the above poster for Marvel’s Avengers as on display at the International Licensing Expo in Las Vegas last week – all three Avengers who recently rocked out with Mötley Crüe in the Q are shown as they will appear in the movie and in the plethora of merchandising sure to follow…
Movies.ie also notes, “Captain America’s modern suit which has wings on the helmet along with an idea of what Hawkeye will look like…the Iron Man suit has been updated too.”
These and more of the Albuquerque adopted super heroes are still in our midst as production rolls on this week. Meanwhile New Mexico represents on the big screen as host to some of the highly skilled hands of Sony Imageworks that touched-up the current box office topper The Green Lantern.
YOU still have a chance to put YOUR hand, face and/or feet in The Avengers if you can make it out for what’s really, really HOT IN CLEVELAND:
Producers will see people 18 and older
12-4 p.m. July 15
10 a.m.-4 p.m. July 16
at the Holiday Inn
6001 Rockside Road
Independence, OH (just outside the land of Cleve.)
As in the case of casting in the Q this call sheet too advises that people “come well-groomed…wearing your best business executive outfit,” Adults may submit “current pictures of children under 18” for consideration as possible extras.
The Avengers will shoot for approx. two weeks within 30 miles of Cincinnati – Enjoy your influx O-hi!
People should “come well-groomed and wearing your best business executive outfit,” the call sheet said. Adults also may submit “current pic tures of children under 18” for consideration as possible extras.
Well, well, well…KICKSTART MY HEART…as we live and breath (the smoke of the Q) here art our beloved AVENGERS with vintage arena rockers Mötley Crüe!
Bassist Nikki Sixx tweeted the pic of the Crüe posing with the other HOTTEST TICKET in town…Marvel’s Avengers, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, and Mark Ruffalo!!
Hmmmm, maybe Chris Evans is holding the camera ;) (yes ima kick this deceased equine situation)
P.S. One of the best, HOTTEST moments in THOR involves that sessy Jeremy Renner (dr. feelgood indeed)! The whole flick rocks harder than a pack of 80′s babes at a Poison/Mötley Crüe double bill – so CATCH IT if you haven’t yet NM!!!
Maybe like that very cute, but hyper pubescent boy from my 9th grade summer school remedial math class, Chris Evans thinks it’s adorbs bordering on irresistible to throw an almost nonsensical put down on every other thing…Or maybe like a Dixie Chick in London he wants to declare a full on public denouncement.
While on a quick jaunt to la la land from his host city of Albuquerque, New Mexico where he’s being paid millions of dollars to play grown-up Marvel comics with A-list cast & crew Chris played cut-up with MTV news spouting off about the drabs of the shooting locale.
Me thinks it’s the former that made this lucky actor sound off like this, esp. seeing as his screen idols and fellow Marvel heroes who’ve worked and played in the Land of Enchantment before haven’t been known to quip and complain about the state.
I-Ron man hikes, Nick Fury does it all and Thor doesn’t have to do a damn thang since he’s just prettier than purdy – maybe Cappy just isn’t invited to play with the big boys and he’s lashing out.
Before your friendly neighborhood AVENGERS take over the Albuquerque International Airport they first sweep the underbelly (literally) of downtown Albuquerque.
NOW FILMING in the basement of the sizable property that is the Albuquerque Convention Center.
So many of you darlin’ readers already know this and much much more and may I just say how excited and proud for you and the whole of our great state for being a part of this grande muy magnifico production!!
(Let’s all remain as respectful and professional as those with NDAs)
Just one week ago over 100 companies were invited here to the world renowned NM set by Marvel Studios for a “Licensing Summit”. Read the transcript of what one of these companies were allowed to say about what they saw and did there!
Like habitual New Mexico movie star Seth Rogen, his fellow funny men and gajillions of Hollywood celebs who take to the hills, whether it be for work or rec, RDJ was getting his hike on in Albuquerque TODAY!
No official word on what Iron Man is here for but gossip abounds that he may be set to shoot his scenes for a little film called THE AVENGERS, duh!
Star of many a scene in everything from Gamer to Terminator: Salvation; host to NM productions like Beyond the Blackboard, served as a backdrop for In Plain Sight, Breaking Bad and umpteen more Indie & Artsie films and photo shoots, the storied Albuquerque Rail Yards appear to be up for a role in the biggest movie in New Mexico history!
One of the most beloved and dear demographics on the planet (comic nerds) are all atwitter with these pictures via Superhero Hype said to be the set of an upcoming Avengers shoot.
No word or buzz yet whether or not my personal favorite architectural nay public works landmark will score a role in the film, but with its previous appearances as the Gates of Cyberdyne, etc., etc., I don’t know how it couldn’t be at least asked to audition!
Break a leg Rail Yards, but not Scarlett’s because no AVENGER is more coveted the world over!
UPDATE 5/2/11 Though the statement released by Marvel Studios today (below), is being batted about all over the web as possibly being a ploy, a conspiracy or a cover-up, OneHeadlightInk.com can confirm:
The Avengers production moved ahead in Albuquerque today, business as usual. Samuel Jackson is here, film actually rolled – CONFIRMED
Reports were flying this morn’ that a New Mexican or at least someone in Samuel L. Jackson’s beloved Nuevo Mexico had perpetrated a crime against all that is holy in the superhero world by HIGHjacking from Sam one of the most coveted scripts in comic movie history…
Like the much lored tale of the then latest version of the iPhone being planted stoopidly left behind in a coffee shop or brew haus…this here story is sure to be chalk full of twists and turns.
News ~broke last week that media outlets were being offered the buy. This weekend it has been confirmed that production of the blockbuster in the making is halted until further notice and sources tell Film Fan Review that the script indeed remains on the loose BUT WAS NOT STOLEN from New Mexico USA but rather lifted in either Burbank or Los Angeles California, UFO.
Mama smells stunt and/or rewrites from the production that is sure to yield many of both…in any case this should not go down in the annals of New Mexico Film history as a black eye on our great state…
Unless fiscal opportunist “Harry” Winston Brooks or NM Film seductress Saboteur Susana don’t each have a solid alibi….
UPDATE 5PM (MST): Several NM Set Insiders are stating to us that they have received no notification of a production breach or break and will be reporting to their jobs at next call.
UPDATE 5/2/11 Marvel Studios has released this statement:
“Filming for ‘The Avengers’ is active, on schedule and going well,”
New Mexico, USA – Pre-production has been underway for weeks now, but today Geek-blogs and blockbuster entertainment reporting sites alike are abuzz documenting this sure to be storied day in movie history as the first day of filming on Marvel mega movie The Avengers.
The studio has released this first and only official set pic to commemorate the occasion and to whet the eyes plus for all those around the globe who are clamoring for sights, info. and updates from the New Mexico set.
Pinch your cheeks and powder your nose New Mexico the WORLD is watching! From the ultra secure back-lots, hotels, house rentals, rental cars, to the media correspondents, roving reporters’ crew, supplies and essentials not to mention, except to mention entourages, pets, and fanboys – it’s ON!
