Shit just got real in Joss Whedon's Avengers shoot. Some new set photos and videos reveal Captain America locked in battle with a mysterious threat... and there are some pretty good clues as to what that threat is. Spoilers below...

Seriously, these photos get pretty spoilery once you scroll down.

So the latest set photos from Cleveland give us our best look so far at the modern version of Captain America's suit — which is sort of a mixed bag. On one side, there's no more chinstrap and less bulky stuff attached to the torso. On the other hand, it's a lot more brightly colored and more overtly "comic-booky" than the somewhat toned down version in Cap's origin story.

Coming Soon/Superhero Hype has a lot of photos of the new Cap costume in action. Here are a couple of the good ones:

And then there are photos of an action scene in which Cap fights some invaders, who are wearing motion-capture suits. Are they aliens? People in mecha suits? We don't know yet. But they're holding what look like alien super-weapons:

Aidan_ III: The Return

I've got to be the naysayer to everybody suggesting this could a be a fake-out. For the money it costs to shut down a city street and have actors on set, there's very little chance that this is not stuff meant for the film. Fake-outs and disinformation usually come in the form of fake scripts or codenames for the movie, a la Cloverfield. The most you get for out-and-out footage is when a relatively small scene might be filmed multiple ways.

My guess for the villains of the film is still a Loki/HYDRA team-up, since there's actual footage showing HYDRA soldiers flanking Loki from the Captain America teaser, and those weapons could possibly be Asgardian tech from the look of them, but the mo-cap suits and the weapons certainly do make the Skrulls a stronger possibility.
