Clevelanders Get up Close and Personal with ‘The Avengers’ Sets

These days it pays to be a comic book fan living in a city that used to thrive with industry, but has since become stale due to cheaper labor cost in other countries.  Cleveland is one such town that used to thrive in America’s manufacturing glory days, and now it is in the limelight with major parts of The Avengers being filmed within its city walls.  The local news crew has taken to the streets to film parts of The Avengers set and to get the reaction of local Clevelanders who are proud that their city is the home of a major motion picture production.  You won’t get to see any of the superheroes in action, but the vid does give you a glimpse of how Cleveland is being transformed into a different world for the upcoming shooting schedule for The Avengers.  Check it out below.  You’ve been wanting a Marvel movie to be filmed in your dying town…
