A few days ago we told you that, according to Avengers cinematographer Seamus McGarvey, not only were parts of the movie filmed with an iPhone, they are even in the trailer. It turns out that Seamus McGarvey was misquoted.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
I was talking about how up and coming film makers have access to a whole range of new technologies which expand our options as filmmakers. I mentioned that the iPhone and the Canon 5d Mk2 were devices currently used on many Hollywood productions. I used the Canon on some shots on Marvel’s The Avengers movie,” he stated to THR. “Unfortunately, this was edited to read that I shot some of the film with the iPhone. This is not true.
The movie is scheduled for May 4th 2012, starring Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Chris Helmsworth as Thor and Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow.
