THE AVENGERS Location Filming Starts Off With A Bang

Location for Marvel Studios’ The Avengers began over the weekend in Cleveland standing in for Manhattan. The first bit of footage shot looked to be some second unit work with a large crowd running down East 9th Street away from the sound of gun fire. A little later a large series of explosions were shot as well. Although none of the filming involved the cast though Chris Evans, Captain America himself, stopped by to watch.

Here’s a roundup of video and pictures that have turned up around the web. With shooting scheduled to go on for another four weeks or so around town, expect lots more pictures and videos.
