Captain America doubles Manchester for 1940s New York

Captain America: The First Avenger has closed parts of Manchester’s Northern Quarter for two weeks of location filming. The area has been dressed to double for 1940s New York.

Susan Williams, Drama Liaison Manager at Vision+Media in Salford Quays, said: “The area was a convincing Victorian London in Sherlock Holmes last year and more recently it became1980s Soho for the BBC’s Worried About The Boy drama. We suggested the area to Marvel as its wide streets, towering buildings and pre-war architecture will make the perfect 1940s New York.”

The film tells the story of Steve Rogers, a soldier who becomes Captain America when he transforms into a human weapon through the Super Soldier programme.
