Back in October it was announced that Disney/Marvel’s Avengers movie would be occupying all seven sound stages at New York’s Grumman Studios in Bethpage.
This location is literally seconds away from Geekpropaganda headquarters.
Today, Brother Jobu and I ventured out to the studio to see what’s been going on there since the big announcement.
I don’t want to brag but it’s a pretty big deal for us to present this “world exclusive” very first visit (by ANY MEDIA OUTLET!) to the set of The Avengers. Enjoy!
This is the security booth at the main gate. I was ready to do some fancy “Jedi Mind tricks” to get us past the guards but they seemed to have been on a lunch break or something and had left the door open. I guess when the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes work in your building you don’t really have to be concerned about security. Right?
Here is the main entrance to the Studio. Once filming starts, JJ Abrams, Robert Downey Jr., Sam Jackson, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Clark Gregg as well as CGI Mark Ruffalo will walk up these steps to get inside.
This is an F-14 Tomcat. Apparently movie folks get to fly jets to work and just park them wherever they like; or maybe this is going to be retro-fitted into a piece of Stark Enterprises Tech; or maybe General Ross is going to chase CGI Mark Ruffalo in this jet; or maybe it’s like Brother Jobu suggested and it’s there because the landGrumman Studios was built on actually used to be used to build F-14 aircrafts for the Military.
So there you go folks – the very first Avengers set visit by ANY MEDIA OUTLET. Kablamm!
Take THAT Ain’t it Cool News! 😉
