Photo Essay: Behind the Scenes at The Avengers

Our roving camera was on hand to witness the red carpet energy and excitement at Saturday’s screening of Marvel’s The Avengers at BMCC’s Tribeca Performing Arts Center.

At Saturday night’s Tribeca Film Festival screening of Marvel’s The Avengers, on-screen stars Robert Downey, Jr. (Tony Stark / Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Cobie Smulders (Agent Maria Hill), and more assembled with real-life heroes: police officers, firefighters, first responders, and those serving in the various branches of the military.

As you can see from these exclusive photos, excited fans started lining up early in the morning to get a glimpse of both kinds of heroes, with a palpable energy pulsating throughout the space. They were not disappointed!
