CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 Cleveland Shoreway Location Confirmed For Car Chase Action

CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 Cleveland Shoreway Location Confirmed For Car Chase Action

Cleveland's Memorial Shoreway will indeed have an extensive car chase action scene filmed on it for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Read more details about this and a helicopter after the jump...

If you do not know this by now, it should be common knowledge that the Captain America: The Winter Soldier production in Cleveland is shutting down 3.5 miles of highway closure on the Memorial Shoreway.

Previously, The Daily SuperHero reported a city government official had said, "There will be more car action in Captain America than all past Marvel Studios movies combined." Along with another report saying that the Shoreway will be shut down to film an extensive car action scene.

After digging and digging for more detailed information on these reports about the Shoreway, it can now be confirmed—by a local business owner who was given a letter from the Cap 2 production company—there will indeed be a car action sequence. (You can see a photo of this letter below.)

In the letter it clearly states, "We will film car chase scenes and stunt sequences with gunfire on the Shoreway."

The letter continues to discuss all the closures for the Shoreway and nearby streets that have been known by both the media and general public from press releases by the Greater Cleveland Film Commission. What wasn't known, until now, is that there will be a helicopter filming scenes on the Shoreway on June 7.

"On Friday June 7, we will film from a helicopter which will conduct low flyovers in the vicinity of the Shoreway."

All the past reports/scoops about the Shoreway are looking more and more like they can all be confirmed based on this new bit of information directly from the production company, via a local business owner.

Stay tuned as The Daily SuperHero is your on location source for Captain America 2 in Cleveland!

The letter mentions "Vita-Ray Productions." Nice touch!

All I hear about with this movie are car chases and Samuel Fury getting roughed up. Give me some damn Cap news. I want to hear about Cap fight scenes, not car chase scenes. Cap needs to kick much ass in this movie, because the first movie was full of montages instead of action and great hand to hand fights. Cap should have the best fight scenes of all Marvel's movies!
Black Widow's fight scene from Iron Man 2 > Cap's fight scenes in Cap 1.

I like the slow burn of just teasing the film with these sort of news.

I believe it when they said this will be action packed.

Anyway shutting down the highway has got to be cheaper than building their own like Matrix Reloaded

While I want to see more of Steve fighting then in a car. We are going to get Captain America behind the wheel of a car! This is going to be epic! He probably has badass driving skills too. Can't wait for the Winter Soldier vs. Captain America fight. Then the finale will be Crossbones vs. Winter Soldier and Captain America.

I want to see more Cap fights ala Blonsky vs the Hulk in TIH, lots of abrobatics and very fast

@Negrotigre: Agreed. I'm itching for Captain action. And where is WS for that matter I don't think I've seen him on set yet. I know they're in the damn movie, I'm just impatient lol. D:
