Chris Evans Provides an “Avengers” Updates

Chris Evans (Captain America) has been working on the set of The Avengers in Albuquerque, New Mexico with his co-stars, Chris Hemsworth, (Thor) Robert Downey Jr., (Iron Man) and Mark Ruffalo, (Bruce Banner) among others.

Evans recently spoke with MTV about his experiences on set. Speaking on how director, Joss Whedon is dealing with so many big-name characters at once, he said:

“It’s not an easy task for Joss to incorporate all of these characters, and not only is he doing a fantastic job, but everyone is just getting along so well.”

Evans also admitted to unleashing his inner fan-boy when seeing his co-stars in their heroic attire. He said:

“I seen Hemsworth with the cape and Downey with the suit, and it’s the first time I’ve really kind of geeked out.”

Much to the dismay of the studios, much of the key points of The Avengers have come out. It’s known that Loki, who was played by Tom Hiddleston in Thor, will return for the ensemble film as one of its main villains. He will be aided by the power of the Cosmic Cube as well as his new associates, the alien species known as the Skrull. Latino Review also broke the story that the mighty villain, Thanos will play his part.

With Joss Whedon at the helm, “The Avengers” is set to be one of the first big films of next year’s summer season with a release date of May 4, 2012. (Source)

Tom Hiddleston Hints at “The Avengers” Script

As anyone who’s been following the ever-growing excitement surrounding Joss Whedon’s The Avengers well knows, the nitty-gritty details of the film are hard to come by these days. Aside from the film’s superstar cast, and the fact that filming began last week, there hasn’t been too much to report.

Recently, MTV News managed to get a few teasers from Tom Hiddleston during the Thor press day over the weekend, we’ve gained some serious “Avengers” insight — from the security measures taken with the scripts, to who will likely be playing the sole villain in the film.

“It’s like ‘Mission: Impossible,’ ” Hiddleston joked about receiving the script. “It was delivered to me at my flat in London, and I sat down and I read it and my mind exploded,” he said. “It is so good and so fun, and so huge, what Joss Whedon has already done, that screenplay is an achievement in itself.”

Hiddleston said that he was so excited when he heard the news — that his mischievous “Thor” character, Loki, would indeed be a part of “Avengers,” he nearly fell off his chair.

“The thing is, you want to call all your friends and tell them, but that’s when the red dot appears on your forehead and your life is over,” he joked of the extreme parameters set to keep the actors from revealing anything. “So, I had to just do a Loki dance in my flat, that’s how it went down.”

With regard to the “tension” that Hiddleston’s onscreen brother Hemsworth (a.k.a. Thor) alluded to, the actor hinted that there will be far more tension between Loki and the Avengers.

“Let’s say it’s going to take more than Loki’s hunky brother to take him down this time,” Hiddleston said with a laugh. “The characters are so different. That’s part of the joy of ‘The Avengers,’ I think,” he said. “You bring all the people, you bring nuclear scientists and gods, and gamma-ray [scientists] and a super soldier from the1940s, so the skill sets are different, and I guess they’re all a match for Loki in different ways.”

We then asked Hiddleston if he felt the eight-against-one odds felt like a lot to take on.

“I guess so, but, you know, he has ways and means,” he said slyly.

“The Avengers” to Film in Cleveland

While states such as Illinois have seen a decline in Hollywood movie production deals that help fill empty hotel rooms, Ohio is seeing an increase in movie business, Ohio’s NBC affiliate WYKC reports.

Ohio’s film office secured four more movies to be filmed at least partly in Ohio. One of them – Marvel Entertainment’s The Avengers – had switched locations to Cleveland from Detroit. Marvel’s decision to shoot scenes for The Avengers in Ohio cost Detroit’s four-star Westin Book Cadillac about $280,000 in business, hotel sales manager Amanda Toy had previously told the Detroit News.

Entertainment Weekly says The Avengers started filming one month ago in Albuquerque, N.M., and was scheduled to move to Cleveland, followed by New York City. The movie will be released in theaters on May 4, 2012. (Source)
