WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — The Marvel Comics superhero movie sequel “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is filming this week in Washington.
Movie crews tried to dupe the public and keep prying eyes away from the set by announcing they were shooting a film called “Freezer Burn.”
However, an actor with a bit part in the film spilled the beans to WNEW’s Kevin Patrick that it was in fact the upcoming action blockbuster.
The DCist reports portions of the superhero epic were also filmed last Sunday near the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge.
A posting on the Maryland Film Office website reveals the movie will be shooting scenes in the area through Thursday.
According to the casting call, Wednesday and Thursday will be the busiest shooting days. Adults and children over the age of eight are being cast for extra roles.
Police have closed 4th Street between Independence Avenue, SW and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW because of the shooting. The street will be closed from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m. Tuesday.
Nearby, separate crews are filming scenes for the television show America Unearthed. The series airs on H2, a spinoff of The History Channel.
