How The Avengers’ incredible ‘tie-in’ shot was made

Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) has uploaded a new ‘behind the magic’ feature as a belated Christmas present for us nerds. In the video, the special effects team detail how they accomplished the lengthy single-take shot in The Avengers’ climactic battle sequence, where the Avengers superhero team, well, assemble.

As a mixture of live-action, motion-capture and complete CGI, the process sounds as complex as Crisis on Infinite Earths who Spider-Man actually is in the current continuity.

Props to ComicBookMovie for the link. But we still have a Hulk.
