The Avengers: Captain America and Loki Fight On Set; Marvel to Release Movie Comic Book Tie-In

Just last week, we brought you some behind the scenes video from the Cleveland, Ohio set of director Joss Whedon’s forthcoming Marvel Studios film, The Avengers. The video showed Tom Hiddleston in full Loki garb, wreaking havoc in Cleveland’s Public Square which is portraying Stuttgart, Germany in the film.

Thanks to some more fans on the streets of Ohio, we have some more video. The first shows Captain America (Chris Evans) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) rehearsing a fight scene. At first Hiddleston isn’t wearing his helmet, but he does put it on towards the end of the clip. The second video shows Hiddleston being driven away from the set in a black SUV and displaying his appreciation to the fans filming him as he’s driven by them.

Check out all of the videos below!
