Loki Arrives In Latest Photos, Video From The Avengers Set

Warning: Potential spoilers!

Filming of The Avengers moved last night from Cleveland’s East Ninth Street, which doubled for New York City’s 42nd Street, to Public Square, which will stand in for a beer garden in Stuttgart, Germany. There onlookers were treated to Tom Hiddleston, fresh from Disney’s D23 fan expo, clad in his green-and-gold Loki armor and wielding a golden staff.

Comics blogger Sean Kleefeld, who’s an extra on the set, says the scene involves Loki showing up on Earth and being confronted by Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). “I’m on the sidelines looking surprised,” he writes.

The Plain Dealer reports that the former Higbee’s Department Store near the square has been turned into a German opera house, while the 52-story Terminal Tower may fall victim to a CGI plane. There was also talk at the set of the Hulk making an appearance, which would jibe with Mark Ruffalo’s absence from D23.

Below check out photos and video of Hiddleston as Loki, all courtesy of Kristina Bodnar.

Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers also stars Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders and Stellan Skarsgård. It opens opens May 4, 2012.

    Next thing you know, Disney will have open sets you can visit and get pictures with the characters like they were Mickey or Minnie or something?  Maybe they will have a special photo op spot in each set. Ha! Too commercial.

    Seeing that Thor alone can smash Loki and we just had the two in the movie… think it was titled something like..’THOR’ ..maybe? Why is Loki in the avengers movie??? Will we have the avengers fighting the Skrull invasion and all their past movie villains???

    I live in Cleveland. They’re filming in front of the Ritz Carlton hotel. It’s kind of hard to tell hotel guests not to look out their windows.

    “I don’ think so. People can do a lot of things. As I said last week, if Wolverine is with teh Avengers on Tuesday, with the X-Men on Thursday and in his own book on Friday, that still given him plenty of time to get everything done. Plus, this is all fiction, so the rules of space and time can bend for us (and frequently do)”
