That's bizarre. There's plenty of pre-war NY architecture in... New York!

True but isn't Marvel getting some tax breaks for shooting in London? Thought I recalled reading something to that effect awhile back.

Yeah, but since most of the movie is already being shot in England, it's easier to shoot the American scenes there as well.

tax breaks, ease of making Europe in 2010 look like WW2 Europe compared to making 2010 America look like WW2 Europe and (IIRC) a better £-$ conversion rate meaning the budget'll stretch further is why they're filming in Europe.

Re: CAPTAIN AMERICA-shooting July 2010:Casting, Rumors, Pics till rele

A Twitter update from a glorified extra on the set of Captain America confirms a few things.
- Shooting a rally scene today & saw the 1940's cap costume. It's ermmmm... Suprising? I think it will change throughout the flick.

- Basically costume looked shit! Tights etc ala Adam West era Batman. However, found out for def that it improves loads!

- Apparently he starts out in a rubbish suit (on purpose) and then it gets upgraded to a badass one. Phew! I feared the worst!

- Can I add that Chris Evans seems like a super nice guy. He was joking with us and chatting in between takes. Kept up morale.
That the first costume is meant to be seen as silly.
Chris Evans is apparently a great guy to work with.

Can't wait for some pics and perhaps that ComicCon footage to get out.

From the description the footage wasn't anything spectacular.

They had only been filming for a couple of days

The teaser was WW2 footage… typ*i*cal stuff: planes bomb*ing, anti-aircraft guns fir*ing, sol*diers march*ing, super*im*posed over what is obvi*ously a very slow reveal of the red, white and blue shield. Roosevelt’s Day of Infamy speech plays over this footage as text appeared on the screen:
Our courage and strength led us into bat*tle, sto*ries emerged of heroes … but one story has never been told.
Bam, the full cir*cu*lar shield. Is shown, then fades to black as text appears: Every army starts with one man.
Cap*tain America’s sil*hou*ette, shield on the arm, stand*ing in near pro*file. To black.
“Next sum*mer meet the world’s first avenger.”
Chris Evans turn*ing around in cos*tume, very much like the designs we’ve seen over the last month or so. No wings on head, but very much a prac*ti*cal army suit.
The title hit and then the zinger (you know the zinger… every trailer has one… you think it’s over and then BAM some*thing else) was of Evans launch*ing the shield right at camera.

Johnston said a while ago that the first suit would be a fairly literal rendition of the comics costume, as I recall, to show what it would look like, then they would move on to something designed for the field.

sounds like what they did with Robin's costume in Batman Returns (I think that was the one).

Sad that a costume based on the flag, a costume that has remained basically unchanged in 70 years, is basically being used as a clown suit.

In real life, that's what it probably would become. The movie version and the Ultimate version are closer to reality.

And none of your outdated "I don't want it to be reality" nonsense. They're doing this for the mainstream audiences you are not a part of.

Ah, yes. Undoubtedly the rest of the film will be extremely realistic.

For the most part Cap has been based in reality when it came to WWII adventures. Except for the Red Skull searching for the Cosmic Cube.

But then, that's partially from the comics and partially from Indiana Jones.

Indiana Jones came off as realistic-feeling despite the Godly influence. And he didn't need a rubber comic book costume either .
