Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when "Marvel Avengers Assemble" assemble in Summer 2012.
On Day 11 of the shooting schedule, what some thought could never happen did happen as the entire cast assembled for the first time for a scene in which they all find out why Nick Fury has rounded them up together. Seeing the entire cast together was an unforgettable moment for the filmmakers, who for years have been shaping the Marvel Universe so that this team of Marvel Super Heroes could unite on one set.
“It really was a special moment seeing everyone together for the first time,” says producer Kevin Feige. “’The Avengers’ is a cornerstone of Marvel Comics and to bring it to the big screen is quite an accomplishment and it was something the entire cast recognized in the moment and they were all very excited. I know I was giddy just watching at the monitor.”
“There weren’t many days when we had the entire cast on the set at the same time,” adds executive producer Patricia Whitcher. “But the day everyone remembers was the first day they were all together on the Helicarrier. The energy in the room was simply electric. After the first scene, everybody on set just stopped and looked at each other and spontaneously started clapping. It was like, ‘Wow, this is kind of a remarkable thing.’ On days like that you really feel privileged to do what you do.”
