The UK filming locations for Captain America: The First Avenger in Liverpool and Manchester have been specified, courtesy of BBC News.

The filming in Manchester will take place in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, which shall be transformed into 1940’s New York for a dramatic car chase. Susan Williams, drama liaison manager, said the company was approached by the studio, “We suggested the area to Marvel as its wide streets, towering buildings and pre-war architecture will make the perfect 1940s New York.”

The scenes in Liverpool will be filmed at the Stanley Dock area, the details of these scenes are yet to be specified.

The filming in Manchester will take place for two weeks in September, so if you fancy checking it out head up there if you can!
