Behind the scenes footage of Avengers 2 shows how goofy movie making is

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 boy, making such a spectacle for a movie leads to some hilarious behind the scenes footage. I mean, check out this 9 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 filmmakers and people in post turning these funny clips into seat rumbling action sequences.

One unsung hero in this department is Michael Fassbender, who plays the younger Magneto in X-Men: First Class (and Days of Future Past). Magneto's power is wholly invisible, and he has managed to completely sell the physicality of it, particularly when he's meant to be moving stupidly huge things with some difficulty.

On set, he probably just looks like he's pooping his pants AS HARD AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. But it ends up looking amazing.
