The Avengers Heads to New York

The Avengers has already found a location to begin set building at Bethpage’s Grumman Studios, according to a report at Long Island Business News.

The shoot, described as "huge" by Grumman Studios President Parviz Farahzad, will make use of all seven buildings on the studio lot, most recently home to Salt‘s studio production.

Earlier reports had indicated that parts of the shoot would take place in Los Angeles, and it is possible that production could be split between the two coasts.

Set construction is said to begin next month for the Joss Whedon-helmed superhero picture which is already set to star Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Clark Gregg, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Mark Ruffalo.

The Avengers is planned for release on May 4, 2012.
