    Captain America... thought you might like to see some pics of the set...

    As some of you know, I live in Manchester, England. Recently, a spate of movies have been filmed here but this is the first one I've found the time to go and look at.

    Captain America

    I found it really interesting and although it's not a G-related thread, I thought some of you may like to see my (very poor quality iPhone) piccies...

    I've no idea who the blonde-haired guy is but he had a body-double that was closer to the set. I'm guessing one was an actor and the other a stuntman although they could have both been either. This guy had prosthetic feet... at first I thought he just had really ugly\strange feet lol but then I realised they were more like shoes created to look like feet... as if he was running barefoot through the streets I guess.

    We didn't get much chance to see any action as one of the cars broke down but they've literally turned a street of Manchester into old New York. Apparently 60% of the movie will be CGI though.

    Manchester gets picked for movies as the "Nothern Quarter" looks similar to the type of architecture seen in New York apparently.

    Cool! Thanks for those. Did you get discouraged to hang around at any point?

    Surprisingly, not at all. Everyone including security are really easy going and didn't mind people taking pictures etc.

    Captain America is apparently played by Chris Evans-he played the firey one in the Fantastic Four (not the Radio 2 DJ). Could be him in the photos.

    I expect it's a little cheaper closing a road for filming in Manchester than it would have been in New York

    I'm a Marvel fan. Not too much anymore though. Unlike before.
