Moviemaking is an art, a science, and a feat of pure magic. There are hundreds of crew members, hundreds (sometimes thousands) of post production artists (editors, CGI, other VFX sound, etc.), not to mention all of the producers and the people with director in their title (assistant directors, second unit directors, etc.) that have to get things just right to bring those special moments streaming by at 24fps.To honor all those who put in the hours, and to honor the magic that few get to see, we've decided to break down the best behind the scenes photos from Marvel Studios The Avengers!
