We reported back in May that Marvel Studios will shoot their upcoming superhero film outside of the U.S. for the first time and now more specifics on filming locations have been revealed. BBC is reporting that Captain America: The First Avenger will be filming in Manchester U.K.'s Northern Quarter. Here's an excerpt from the article.
Manchester's Northern Quarter is to be transformed into 1940s New York for a dramatic car chase in Captain America: The First Avenger.
It has been chosen by Hollywood studio Marvel Productions for the company's first film shoot outside the US.
That area was chosen because of its, "towering building and pre-war architecture." Filming was also said to take place at Liverpool's Stanley Dock, "are yet to be finalised."
