Filming for The Avengers began yesterday, and today the first official set photo was released by Marvel. It’s more of a teaser, displaying part of the set with the chairs for Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo.

Coupled with the photo is Marvel’s article on the film and it confirms Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki. That certainly makes things interesting.

I am stoked.

The Avengers hits theaters May 4, 2012.
