“Avengers” moves into NASA facility in Ohio

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Filming for Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers” moved into Plum Brook’s Space Power Facility in Sandusky, Ohio where they are expected to take advantage of the location’s vacuum chamber. The device reportedly allows you to mirror the gravity-free qualities of outer space.

The Sandusky Register (via ComingSoon) reports that the production is expected to stay at Plum Brook for the rest of the week.

“It’s believed, however, that Samuel L. Jackson is the only big star from the film who is filming at Plum Brook,” the newspaper reports.

“Plum Brook has guards who control entrance into the facility, allowing visitors to enter only after showing their identification. … This week, ‘they have their regular security and a little beefed up to make sure,’ [NASA spokeswoman Sally] Harrington said.”

No other stars outside of Jackson? If that’s accurate, it blasts a hole in my theory that Whedon would be filming a large-scale outer space battle in the NASA facility.

Whedon’s “Avengers” film still has an air of mystery around it, which is thrilling. I’d like to go into this blockbuster as clean as possible, though that’s likely impossible. The movie kicks off next summer’s blockbuster season with a May 4, 2012 release date.
