Before JJ Abrams meandered off to a galaxy far, far away, he did a pretty-darn-tootin’ good job of breathing new life into another classic sci-fi franchise with his 2009 “reboot” (I use this word very begrudgingly these days) of Star Trek. Next year we are due to receive the third film from this new series, the Justin Lin-directed Star Trek Beyond, and other than some vague ramblings about how it’s going to be alternatively “less Trek-y” but also somehow harken back to the classic 1960 series’ original roots, not much is known about the particulars of the film. Today, however, we finally got a decent look at some actual filming footage; while Paramount has been swift in it’s work to remove the video from the internet, we do have a good amount of still photos taken from the video – view them while supplies last!
The Dark Knight Rises may have left Pittsburgh but The Avengers still have plenty of filming left to do. These images and clips might be from Cleveland, honestly, it’s hard to tell. But what you can see is our first good look at Tom Hiddleston in costume on set.
Below are three good shots of Hiddleston is his Loki garb, plus two videos filmed on set. Kind of adorable to note, this footage seems to come from a father and son team. Awwe, set crashing and good ole’ nerdery is a family affair!
Filming wise, the only bit ‘o’ scene you’ll catch is at the end of the second video (hilariously entitled ‘Tom Hiddleston as Loki works hard in The Avengers’, lolz) where a mob of innocent bystanders run away screaming.
The Avengers is set for release May 4, 2012.
