Yes, it's true. The first I heard of it was last night when a mate of ours said he'd been around the set, a day before they started shooting. They'd allowed people to have a look as long as noone misbehaved.

Where??? I hear you cry? Around Dale Street to be precise:

Also Johnny Depp decided to make an appearance in the rainy city of Manchester, we presumed he'd be around to see his mates (Tommy Lee Jones?) and, well, its a superhero film isn't it!

The film stars Tommy Lee Jones, Samuel. L. Jackson and Chris Evans....no not THAT Chris Evans

Pictures?? Oh yeah, why not


The wall at the far end is actually a painted fake wall


Love the clocks


Nice authentic 1940's style cars!

As we were walking around we heard the simulated gun fire, not long after seeing the sign that warned of gunfire and explosions.

Amusingly, when my girlfriend told a couple of lads who'd queried what film was being filmed the response from them was a blank expression.

YOU'RE GUYS. THIS IS CAPTAIN MOTHERFUCKING AMERICA - surely you should show *some* enthusiasm?
