Spoiler Alert: CAPTAIN AMERICA Details Leaking Online

Like I have said before: I love behind the scenes action. In other words, show me everything it takes to shoot a movie. Talent problems, location issues, new technology, you name it; even if it is from a third party perspective. That's a big part of the reason why I love movie and entertainment blogging: I get to see and hear this stuff from time to time and let you guys know about it, sometimes as exclusives, sometimes not.

This time it is from the set of Marvel's CAPTAIN AMERICA (directed by Joe Johnston) which is going to be converted to 3D in post production. Chris Evans plays the title role and his alter ego Steve Rogers. Heyuguys is reporting on not only an email full of information from an extra that was on set, but also a video clip showing us some of the shooting location.


Here is the email filling us in on some details of the scenes involved:
The first day we were on set we were filming a scene set in Nazi occupied Italy, where a group of POWs are marched back into camp by Captain America, and a few other guys. One of the guys was played by Neal McDonough, from Desperate Housewives, and there were a couple more. One Japanese guy and one other. Everyone was in normal military uniform, and Chris Evans was wearing military trousers, and a leather jacket, with the Captain America top underneath.

The whole day we filmed different views of the troops marching in. As we were marching, we walked past tanks and trucks with a logo with a skull and octopus legs on it.

At the end of the day, we shot a scene where we all crowded around Chris Evans. Hayley Atwell, in a nurse’s outfit came over and spoke very quietly to him. I asked, but no one heard what she said. After that, Tommy Lee Jones came over, said ‘Faith, huh!’ and walked off.

The second day we filmed the USO show, around the stage in your video. It was pretty boring, but we did get to see Chris Evans in the Captain America costume.

They’ve gone for a 1940s style, with a padded top, little blue shorts, blue leggings and red boots.

Interesting details on the CAPTAIN AMERICA outfit. I have included the video I mentioned for you as well:

What I like most about this movie is that Johnston is staying true to the comic book. This CAPTAIN AMERICA doesn't have any super powers to speak of. Stay tuned for me when I get it!
