'The Avengers' Moves to New York

AVENGERS_4_WAccording to LongIslandBusinessNews, Marvel Studios will be bringing THE AVENGERS production to Long Island, New York.
The former Grumman Aircraft plant in Bethpage, now Grumman Studios, expects the comic book adaptation to begin set construction next month.
Grumman Studios President Parviz Farahzad said: “THE AVENGERS is a huge movie. They’re taking all seven stages.”
The studio features the largest un-columned soundstage in NY, the 310’ x 120’ Stage 3.
Interestingly, the site is where the Grumman Avenger planes were built in WWII, and the plant is also where the Lunar Modules for the Apollo program were put together.
Farahzad expects the production to be at the facility for several months. The only other major feature film made at the new facility was Columbia’s SALT, starring Angelina Jolie.
