Amassing 1.5 billion box office dollars on the worldwide stage, it goes without saying that The Avengers was a huge success for Marvel this year. The film united superheroes from four independent movie franchises under one banner. No scene was more exemplary of this fact than the major sequence showing the heroes battling the Chitauri in a decimated New York City. It might have escaped your notice while you were caught up in the climactic scene, but not all of the on-screen heroes were flesh and blood (shocker). Now, a new featurette from Industrial Light & Magic shows just how this final battle scene was constructed. Hit the jump to check it out. Watch the featurette showing the digital effects work of Ilm on the major battle sequence in The Avengers below (via Cbm): Here’s the official synopsis for The Avengers: Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures »
