Marvel Studios promises that audiences who watch "The Avengers" film next year will recognize the inside of the vacuum chamber at the power facility at NASA Plum Brook.

"It will be very recognizable," producer Jeremy Latcham told reporters during an interview Thursday. "There will be NASA logos involved."

The Plum Brook interior shots won't just be in "The Avengers" for a few seconds.

"It'll be minutes," said Latcham, also the senior vice president of production development at Marvel Studios. "The facility is going to be really, really highlighted because it's spectacular. It's also not been filmed before (for a movie), which is pretty awesome."

This week's filming for "The Avengers" marks the first time Plum Brook has been shot for a feature movie. Jerry Carek, the space power facility manager, said numerous TV science programs and documentaries have been filmed there in the past.
