Production crews have been hard at work all week transforming several streets in Manchester, England into 1940's New York City. Check out their progress as well as the numerous antiqued props.
Construction is still underway in an effort to transform several UK locations into 1940s New York City for Captain America: The First Avenger; Marvel Studios' highly anticipated comic book adaptation. The film chronicles the life of Steve Rogers who, through the US Army's secretive Super Soldier Program, becomes the Star Spangled Avenger; Captain America. With principal photography already under way, many random photos from the various sets have begun to appear online. The most notable, of course, being images of a stunt man wearing the Captain America movie costume while riding a motorcycle around the set (which you can view HERE).
Thanks to CAFM.com, we have an idea of how set construction is coming along in the area where an action-heavy scene involving an explosive car chase will soon take place:
Captain America: The First Avenger stars Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Stanley Tucci, Haley Atwell, Sebastian Stan, Dominic Cooper Toby Jones and Neal McDonough. The film is scheduled for theatrical release on July 22nd, 2011.
