On set photos from Marvel's The Avengers

Entertainment Weekly made The Avengers its cover stars this week and some of those photos have now been released online.

The exclusive pictures include one candid scene as the super team chat with a green screen in the background.

Director Joss Whedon and actors Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Chris Hemsworth were all captured, while Mark Ruffalo submitted a pouting studio shot.

To be fair, Ruffalo was probably feeling angry. And you wouldn't like him - or be able to see him yet - when he's angry, as he goes all CGI.
