Captain America comes to Manchester

So, here comes the big summer blockbuster for 2011 – Captain America: The First Avenger! Just about to start filming on the mean streets of Manchester’s Northern Quarter with Chris Evans (not the ginger one), Samuel L. Jackon and Hugo Weaving, Frostbite Productions have transformed part of the city centre into 1940s Brooklyn, complete with shops, hotels, newsstands and, of course, steaming manhole covers! There’s even a 60’x20’ hand painted matte blocking one end of the street to Marvel at.

Despite the period chaos, one lucky (or unlucky depending on how you look at it) Photolinker lives quite literally in the middle of this Hollywood film set – so grab your popcorn and take a look at these pics that he snapped on his commute to the office…
