Variety reports that The Avengers is now scheduled to also shoot in New Mexico, making it the biggest film to ever film in the area. In announcing the news, Governor Bill Richardson called it “a Christmas present of sorts” to the state, as the production will likely create hundreds of jobs. New Mexico, thanks to its tax breaks, has been a hot spot for major productions in the last few years, recently playing host to Thor and Cowboys & Aliens. In addition to filming in New York and New Mexico, some of principle photography is also scheduled to take place in Michigan. The film will be directed by Joss Whedon and is planned to be in production from April until September.
Fanboys, you better start planning your costumes for the 2012 premier. This movie has been talked about and talked about for so many years it’s amazing that it’s finally coming to fruition. The cast is incredible and the anticipation will just continue growing. Hopefully Thor and Captain America are great movies in 2011 so The Avengers will have legs to stand on. It’s such a high concept movie it may be a hard pill to swallow for many. Expect a lot of hype at next year’s Comic-Con as the release draws closer. I’ll keep you posted on the happenings.
