Marvel is famous for keeping budgets down on their expensive superhero movies, but here’s a novel new wrinkle: Parts of The Avengers were shot on an iPhone. “The beauty of photography or cinema is that you make every choice based on the content at hand,” cinematographer Seamus McGarvey told the Irish Film & Television Network. “I did a couple of shots on the iPhone and they are in the movie. In fact, they are in the trailer!” Can you pick out the moments McGarvey is referring to here? We’d lay odds on that low, sunny shot of Thor, but why not ask helpful iPhone 4S voice-assistant Siri to weigh in?
