Casting call

If a movie features a single spaceship or superhero, you can bet your last piece of popcorn my boyfriend is going to make me see it.

And among all the capes and crashes, I’ll admit Marvel’s “Avengers” movies have probably been my favorites. (It might have something to do with my teensy-tiny crush on Iron Man…)

Feel the same way? Then get your butt to Atlanta, where Marvel is casting locals to be extras in the next two “Avengers” films.

How to Get Cast as an Extra in “The Avengers”

Marvel will begin filming throughout Georgia in January 2017, according to Central Casting Georgia.

To audition for “various background and stand-in roles,” you must visit the agency’s Atlanta office any weekday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

“Arrive early,” the ad states, as “those arriving late may be turned away.”

Bring “documentation to complete your I-9 form,” and be prepared to have your photo and sizes recorded.

No payment or experience are required to register. Roles include stand-ins, photo doubles and background talent.

If cast, you’ll get paid — but the listing doesn’t reveal how much. One former movie extra said most roles pay $64-$100 per day.

Break a leg! And if you meet Tony Stark — or, to be honest, Thor — let him know he’s welcome to film in Florida anytime.
