Final New York shoot for The Avengers?

What's more dangerous than being a superhero? Being a New York cab driver, if all the wrecked vehicles on the set of The Avengers are anything to go by.

The latest set up – what we believe is one of the final scenes filmed on Sunday before Joss Whedon locks himself in a room with an editing machine – has two destroyed cabs on show for good measure.

If you saw the shots of the film's superheroic cast yesterday, it might be a disappointment that they weren't around today.

However, this scene did involve lots of extras running away from an unknown threat (is that you Loki? Bad Loki!).

Don't worry, not long now. The Avengers opens on 4 May 2012.
