Best Visual Effects
“Snow White and the Huntsman”
While The Avengers posed many visual efffects challenges, one of the larger challenges was pulling together the “tie-in” shot during the third act of the film. Rather than frames, this single shot is measured in minutes on screen and is one of the longest effects shots in the film. It incorporates both practical special effects and extensive digital visual effects by ILM. The New York City environment that serves as the setting for this shot (and virtaully the entire alien invasion) is computer generated by the visual effects team at ILM.

Robert Downey Jr. – “The Avengers”
Chris Hemsworth was named the “Man of the Year” by Empire Magazine and he has an interview to go along with his title. During the interview, the interviewer asked Chris if he thought Thor and The Avengers will ever bring him the kind of ‘stratospheric fame’ that Twilight bought Kristen Stewart.
Take a look below on Chris’ response:
“Um… I think it’s a different sort of fame. With the utmost respect, Twilight’s is certainly a teen audience, and there was such, um… It’s that sort of, ah, what’s the word? Sort of hysterical kind of fan base, you know? Whereas Avengers is across all ages and people just love the films – all the Marvel films – and it’s a little different from what she experiences.”

Although, Cabin in the Woods isn’t based on a comic book, it is nonetheless the film where one of the greatest comic book movie alliances was born: producer Joss Whedon and star Chris Hemsworth, who would, of course, go on from this horror romp to blow the world away with The Avengers.
But there’s another “Cabin” player that could one day rise to superheroic heights: Fran Kranz, already a Whedon veteran from his days on Dollhouse. Ask him which Marvel character he wants to play, and the answer is simple — just a random dude who gets annihilated by Thor.
“I told Joss when he was doing ‘Avengers,’ because I did ‘Cabin In The Woods’ with Chris Hemsworth and I love that guy, I just told him, ‘Can I be in it and just be someone Thor kills?'” Kranz told our Weekly Whedon columnist Tami Katzoff in a recent interview. “‘Like I just want to be killed by Thor, for a day, I’ll be in and out. ‘You don’t have to pay me, no credit, I just want the satisfaction of knowing that I was hit with Thor’s hammer.'”
For those fanboys (and girls!) who thought The Avengers should’ve had a more melancholy tone à la The Dark Knight Rises, this is for you. Yahoo! has now posted a deleted scene that ended up on the cutting-room floor but is being included on The Avengers’ Blu-ray edition, out Sept. 25. Take a look below:
