Marvel To Turn Manchester Into 1940s Manhattan For Captain America

A major car chase scene will take place in Manchester’s Northern Quarter for the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger movie.

From BleedingCool:
The area was chosen for its wide streets, towering buildings and pre-war architecture. It’s also where much of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes was filmed, and doubled as a nineteen eighties Soho for the film Worried About The Boy.

Shooting in the area is said to take place there for two weeks in September.

Editor's Note: When we get further details, we'll be sure to let you know! If you have any scoops or pics on this area during filming, make sure to let us know! You can send in info through here, bryan@comicbookmovie.com or go to the scoops section.

I'm starting Uni at Bolton on the 19th, so I'll make sure I get down there a couple of times with my camera. You can be sure anything I do manage to get will go straight up on here :D

Cool, because I have a special one I've been saving that was taken just before my back waxing. ;P

You can pick up tea pictures in cereal boxes anymore. The damn things are everywhere and I used to think I was special.

The English contingent on this website is indeed impressive. How do you guys break down in terms of Manchester football allegiances? United? City?

How close is that to Old Trafford I wonder

(Old Trafford is Manchester United's stadium for those non soccer fans)

For anyone who lives near Manchester/Liverpool, these are the only filming dates I've been able to find which the potential extras were told they'd need to be free for filming.

SEPT 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th & OCT 1st

I'm still trying to find out when they'll be near me here in Wales at Caerwent! :)
