Filming continues, undaunted, and un-photographed, in the streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Undaunted because choking,gray smoke from the wildfires ravaging huge swaths Arizona & New Mexico have settled into the Rio Grande valley over the past week and a half. As the photograph above illustrates, Albuquerque has been wrapped in haze that feels absolutely apocalyptic. This seems to have worked out in favor of the production as the smokes arrival coincided with the filming of a dramatic action scene. Our sources tell us that a "Massive Evacuation" scene was filmed around a school in southwest Albuquerque. Apparently there were "...explosions and a lot of extra's running around." According to eye witnesses, the smoke and ash in the air totally enhanced filming at that location. Alas, we have no actual pictures of the set, because as we said, filming on the Avengers has gone un-photographed.
Disney & MARVEL's blackout remains powerfully in place as only two pictures, of what appears to be a set from The Avengers are all that have hit the net so far. Which is a stark contrast to the plot spoiling set photo's of Sony's Spiderman reboot which was filmed primarily in Los Angeles. The primary reason's Avengers has been able to pull this off is because the local populace is happy to have the production in town. That, and most locals employed by the film actually seem to know how to keep their end of Non Disclosure Agreement. Believe me, they really do.The Avengers is enjoying unprecedented set security, due in no small amount to the enthusiasm of the local community. How odd is it then, when a star of the film slaps Albuquerque locals in the face on the MTV Movie Awards? To read more about Chris Evans smack talk about Albuquerque, click here.
