Avengers' Cleveland shoot to end with a bang

The Cleveland shoot for Marvel's The Avengers is planning to end with a bang, according to a press conference held this morning.

Executive producer Patty Whitcher promised “six days of mayhem on this street with lots of explosions and car flipping” at a press conference held earlier today.

"We have to keep people back a bit for safety reasons," she added. "There will be explosions. But [ fans ] will be able to see the actors and their favourite Avengers on the street during the filming."

Cleveland's East Ninth Street is currently being transformed to look like 42nd Street in New York City for the battle scene, which begins shooting on 15 August.

Filming will then take place on a number of streets in the area until the end of August.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers opens in UK cinemas on 4 May 2012.
