Stunning Concept Art from The Avengers

You've seen The Avengers, now see the stunning concept art that helped bring writer-director Joss Whedon's vision to life.
In making The Avengers, it took a veritable army of skilled laborers, craftsmen and animators to construct the movie's numerous sets, vehicles, weapons, aliens — heck, even several of the Avengers themselves. But, before a single brick was laid or a 3D model rendered, artists such as Nathan Schroeder and Steve Jung were tasked with conceptualizing some of the more elaborate locations, vehicles and scenes found in the script. Now that The Avengers is doing so well at the box office — $1 billion worldwide and counting — Marvel Studios is apparently okay with some of the concept art getting out, as both Schroeder and Jung have uploaded the artwork they created for The Avengers to their personal websites. Included in the artwork is one piece by Jung for an "opera scene of the Thor legend" that never made it into the movie so consider it your first look at a "deleted scene" from The Avengers.
