Reports from the set of The Avengers suggested that rain in Cleveland had stopped play, but two videos of a crowd scene that have appeared online suggest you can't keep a good superhero movie down.
The first was taken by YouTube user Andy Baker from his office window.
The second captures the action at ground level and was taken by local newspaper The Plain Dealer .
Meanwhile, CelebBuzz! Papped Chris Evans (see the image at the top of this story) and a poster on the Superhero Hype forums shared the exciting image below.
