Captain America Filming in D.C.
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Captain America may be in the nation’s capital this weekend.
The District’s Office of Motion Picture and Television Development announced this week that the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge will be intermittently closed Sunday, between 8:20 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., “to allow for the filming of a major motion picture.”
Captain America: The Winter Soldier and its working title, Freezer Burn, are not mentioned in the announcement, but ComicBookMovie.com says the plot of the film centers around D.C. While a lot of filming for the movie apparently took place in Cleveland, the niche website predicts that filmmakers need some shots of the real deal to complete the scene.
A sequel to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger and 2012’s The Avengers, The Winter Soldier is scheduled to come out in April 2014.
Chris Evans is reprising his role as super soldier Steve Rogers, and IMDB.com says the new film follows him as he teams up with fellow Avenger Natasha Romanoff (a.k.a. Black Widow) “to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.”
