Behind-the-Scenes Footage of Avengers 2 Shows How Silly Movie-Making Is

By Casey Chan on at

I have no doubt that Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to be ridiculously fun and awesomely badass in all the ways that comic book superhero movies should be. But making such a spectacle for a movie leads to some hilarious behind-the-scenes footage. I mean, check out this nine-minute clip of Avengers 2 and try not to laugh.

It looks like people dressing up in Halloween costumes playing make believe. Which, I guess, isn't too far off from the truth (the people are more beautiful and the costumes more complicated, of course) but really, seeing the behind the scenes footage just reminds me that the true stars of Avengers are the film-makers and people in post-production turning these funny clips into seat-rumbling action sequences.
