    So has Loki ever joined forces with the
    Kree
    ? I know that if it hasn't happened in the comics, that doesn't mean it won't in the movie, but if it has then it's probably alot more likely.

    Today's PD reports that filming began on the Public Square set last night, with extras running screaming out of the Terminal Tower. The square has been reset to resemble a 'modern beer garden' in Stuttgart. I'm going back down tonight, and with any luck, will see some of the real action being filmed.

    you missed a German cop car getting flipped last night.

    SHH has 4 videos, showing filming, including said stunt and Loki stalking around.

    Thanks, Sam!

    We just got back from Stuttgart, er, make that Public Square, dressed up as to pass as Der Deutschland. I wanted to get a few pix posted before calling it a night - more will follow.

    First, a look at the fake marquee and street signs on and around the old Higbee's Building:

    And here, we have a German bus-stop:

    Most of the pictures we took were between 7:00 and about 7:45 P.M. Shortly after 8:00, they closed off the entrances to Tower City (the Terminal Tower) and began moving people away from the Square itself.

    Last group for the night: Here we have a look at the 'Beer-Garden' (which I can only assume is going to get upended and destroyed during tonight's filming!)

    And two views of the tables, lined with beer-mugs:

    I want one of those mugs! :lol:

    I'll work on posting more after work tomorrow. Hopefully, some vids of tonight's action will find their way online by morning.

    I didn't realize they were supposed to be in Germany during all of these scenes they've been filming.

    And supposedly a Russian stronghold somewhere, but I still haven't heard or figured out where that is. I think that's going to be done in a location that's outside of Cleveland itself, but I could be wrong.

    The more set photos I see the more I am convinced this will be a near perfect mesh of both the 616 Avengers origin and the Ultimates origin. I know I've stated this before, but this continues to be the impression I get. Joss knows his comic stuff and is a fan like us and reads a lot so I wouldn't put it past to take from all incarnations of the Avengers history with his story. I'm really excited.

    Just seeing the downtown sets with my own eyes has got me psyched, even without witnessing any of the actual filming.

    Joss did say in an interview i read last year, i think it was, that unlike some teams or heroes - like Batman or Superman say - there's no definitive Avengers story so he was going to use bits and pieces from all over, including the Ultimates.

    OK, time for some more pix from the set.

    First up, a closer look at the detailing on the bus-stop:


    [​IMG]


    Interesting to note that there's both English and German visible on the signage.


    Next, we have a few vehicles representing Stuttgart's finest:

    And then we have more vehicular carnage!

    Here's another group of pix from last night; I'll post a few more in the next day or so.


    Here's another detailed sign, set on the edge of the 'beer-garden':


    [​IMG]


    There's more to the marquee than meets the eye. A few minutes before eight, they turned on the electric scroll under the main sign; this should look pretty cool when it's on film:


    [​IMG]


    And finally, some food bound for the set:


    [​IMG]



    Just curious, have there been any pictures from the New Mexico shoot that have surfaced? Or have I just missed them?
