Though recent news on The Avengers has been spotty at best, finally, Bleeding Cool reports something concrete, albeit minor about the Joss Whedon flick.
The film will shoot on location in the streets of Manhattan, and the filmmakers will most likely be hungry for many, many extras. What exactly will be happening in Manhattan is not yet decided, but one particular element is in development.
Various design companies have been hard at work, creating mockups of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, a process that began even before Joss Whedon signed onto the project.
Though the vision of The Avengers is still vague, this location development is good news. More substantial news is sure to come soon.
