Here's a nice behind the scenes set photo from The Avengers. Director Joss Whedon sits down with actors Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark) and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner) and directs them. This is a nice candid shot from the set, and it makes me think about how these characters are actually going to interact with each other. I'm just as excited for that as I am for the action. I could see Stark and and Banner having a fun relationship in the story. Whedon recently gave a great interview that you should check out here, in which he discusses the film.
What do you think they are talking about in this picture?
