As we were first to report via Twitter, Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson were filming scenes for Captain America today in Times Square! The signs posted around 46th/47th and Broadway were for “Frostbite” (the working title for Captain America) AND “Group Hug” (the working title for The Avengers).
Dozens of OLV readers spotted the filming and reported extras dressed in S.W.A.T. Uniforms, while Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson shot a scene together. They also got a glimpse of the 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD which is being used in the movie. Funny enough, the crew was telling on-lookers that it only an Acura commercial being filmed!
According to one of our readers, Danielle, Captain America is scheduled to return to Times Square to continue shooting on Monday too!
Check a few photos from the shoot below. Admittedly, they aren’t the best shots, but they do give a sense of how chaotic today’s shoot was!
