After walking past the Captain America film set every day on the way to work a few month ago there hasn’t been much coverage on how the movie is moving on till now!
Thanks to Veronica Magazine we have a few behind the scenes pictures of the Captain America set. The pictures are shot on set from the London set and the articles mentions the out door filming from Liverpool and Manchester.
One thing that was prominent in the Manchester filming was the 40 foot tall blue screen in the background. Being a Marvel comics movie there will be a lot of state of the art special effects which use mock shields made from anything from Rubber to Aluminium.
The Captain America Release Date 22nd July
‘Cap’ was born during World War II as a feared enemy of the nazi’s. Nowadays the propaganda is no longer required so now he is fighting evil in general. The movie about his beginning takes place for a large part in New York during the forties. Filming on location was difficult, but Manchester and Liverpool turned out to be perfect to continue as Brooklyn. The filming there caused some headaches though, because the public filming spots were difficult to keep secret. For example the filming of a car explosion in Manchester was online within six minutes.
When we visit the set, the whole crew has relocated to a couple of studio’s within London where work continues to the impressive decors. They work against the clock, while filming on one set, the next is still under construction. It’s like we are walking on a construction site, where the walls are hanging full with blueprints of the most fantastic constructions. Some of them are so big that just a part of it is build. Production designer Rick Heinrichs:”The nice thing of Captain America is that it’s a mixture of World War II and sciencefiction. Some ideas from then are transported to modern times. We wanted to do justice to history and at the same time to the comic.”
