Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios recently provided us with production notes for their upcoming release, Marvel’s The Avengers. In addition to plenty of information on the actual production of the film, the document was filled with images, many of which we do not recall seeing before (apologies in advance for any not so new stills). Unfortunately the images themselves are a bit small, but the amount of eye candy produced is still pretty huge.

The stills pretty much cover all of The Avengers, highlighting Hulk and Tony Stark /  Iron Man but also give us some nice images of Loki as well as the hardware behind the crimefighting squad, namely the Quinjet and the Helicarrier, both inside as well as out.
