Wonder how the big New York City battle in The Avengers was done? Now you know.
With The Avengers now the third biggest film of all time, every bit of it is being analyzed. While I have my issues with the over use of computer animation in a lot of films these days, there is also a lot of stuff that could just never be accomplished without it. Watching the film, it’s doubtful many people gave much thought to just how much work would go into a sequence such as this.
I still would rather see filming done on location, but it is what it is.
