Avengers (2012) movie: Tweets From Set Confirm Aliens and more - spoilers


pic Now, this is a rather interesting development.

We've been hearing that a certain alien race - or races - is set to invade Joss Whedon's The Avengers come 2012.

A reported worker on the set fired off a dozen tweets describing some of the action.

And some of the action involves aliens.

However, that twitter user has since been taken down, one "lionheart3rd."

Now, doing a Google search on this guy shows his twitter account has been active since at least 2010, and you can view some of the tweeted info from below.

Comic Book Movie managed to get the goods and put them up before the Twitter account was deleted.

Check them out.


• First test explosion: Badassness!

•Dargo'ing up the actors takes a bit

•Scarlet came up to us and asked about our equipment. Funny watching her be impressed w/ us. She's pretty cool.

•The crane shot of Hawkeye and Blackwidow is money.

• Explosion 2: even badasser!

•Watching them choreograph Cap beatin' up some aliens (or somethin) too cool.

•The aliens use Jaffa staffs. Tel'c would not be pleased.

•Everything is moving to the otherside of the set. It's funny watching Joss carry his chair.

•Got the schedule for tomorrow, must try to be on that shift.

•For those of you who geek over these things, they're using iPads to show ppl the shot lists w/ the CGI or a rough makeup of it.

•Joss just did his example of an alien charging down set. Scary is not the first word I'd choose, nor the fifth.

•Getting coverage w/ stunt doubles now. Suddenly a lot of shots are becoming clear.

"Jaffa Staffs?"

Who would use those?

Gotta be the Skrulls!
