I watched Captain America last week, the predictable Marvel tosh about a genetically engineered soldier fighting in a war in an alternate 1940s. It did what I thought it would do.
What a lot of people
don’t know is that Marvel Studios shot a small portion of the film
in Manchester’s Northern Quarter back in October 2010. At the time, I swung by
to see what was happening.
I didn’t see a great
deal going on, other than a few extras in trilbies knocking about.
One blogger / photographer was given access to the set.
The posts were quite
interesting. More so than the film itself, it must be said.
There were a few other
big-name films shot in Manchester in the last few years. I’ll watch
them before I blog them though…
