Joe Johnston is directing Captain America: The First Avenger right now in Manchester, and to say that the Manchester locations are not closed sets would be something of an understatement. Two days ago we saw a video walkthrough of the dressed streets, and there has been a steady stream of photos showing a car chase, explosions and more shooting.
Now we’ve got the first photos and video of Chris Evans at work (not in the Captain America costume, however) and of Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter.
INFdaily has the images of Evans, which show him with flesh-colored foot boots, likely designed to make the character appear to be barefoot as he runs hellbent after a car. Can’t have Evans’ feet getting torn up while running down an actual street.
And here are a few images of Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, which come from the Daily Mail and Captain America Filming in Manchester by way of Heyugys. Barry John was the photographer for some of these. And here’s a bit of video of Evans shooting his scene, in which he chases a car down the city street.
Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters July 22, 2011.
