"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
With all of the photos of Chris Evans’ Captain America coming out of the Cleveland set of The Avengers, many fans have wondered where the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes might be. Well, wonder no more … at least about a certain god of thunder. Warning: Spoilers follow!
In video from the employees of Medical Mutual of Ohio and in photos from ComicBookMovie, we get our first look at Chris Hemsworth’s Thor joining the Sentinel of Liberty in the big battle of East Ninth Street, which is doubling for New York City’s 42nd Street. The photos aren’t so great, but the video is pretty solid. Expect more to trickle out soon, naturally.
Meanwhile, The Plain Dealer reveals that, in addition to the night scene being shot Monday at Public Square (standing in for Stuttgart, Germany), there will be “fireball explosions” next week in Parma, and other location in Cleveland will be transformed into a Russian stronghold.
