'Captain America: The Winter Solider' Trailer Debuts; Lovingly Gaze at a Few Cleveland Locations

Filming 'Cap 2' in downtown Cleveland.
The new trailer for Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier debuted about an hour ago – and it’s a corker. Fans will love Cap’s SHIELD uniform, our first glimpse of the Falcon in action, some Russo Brothers comedy and yet another giant piece of CGI machinery crashing, collapsing and otherwise crunching like a beer can.

And you can read all about that on other blogs. What we’re interested in are shots of Cleveland, where a nice slice of Cap 2 was shot last spring. We get a decent amount in this first trailer. Here’s what we spotted. If you see something we missed, comment below :

  • 0:52. Ok, we don’t get much at 52 seconds in, but we do get Anthony Mackie in the back of an SUV driving along what probably is Lakeshore Blvd. downtown.
  • 0:56: Ah, here we go. This is Euclid Ave heading west, heading toward the corner of Euclid and E. 9th. If you’re a Spider-Man fan, you might recognize this intersection and stretch of road as the same one where Spidey battled Sandman in Spider-Man 3. There’s the Huntington Bank building and PNC just ahead of that
  • 0:58: Just after that, we cut to the Shoreway along Route 2 near what’s now First Energy Stadium. This is the big scene that shut down traffic in Cleveland and had everyone in a tizzy. Here the Winter Soldier approaches a vehicle he just shot up.

  • 1:09: More from that scene. This time, the Winter Soldier and his henchman continue the battle. Pretty sure that’s the Courthouse we see behind our friends (and an Ohio flag – wonder if that’ll get the CGI treatment).
  • 1:10: The hits just keep on coming. Here’s more from the Shoreway, looking West, I’d say. Think of the work it took to cover up that billboard? Anyone remember what it was for? Local company?
  • 1:41: Fairly certain this shot of Cap takes place under the Shoreway bridge near the Courthouse. The crew shot a couple battles under her, including one with Black Widow shooting up at the Winter Soldier. But not sure.
  • 1:42: This is definitely downtown, though I can’t tell exactly where. Anybody know? It looks near Lakeshore, near the old Convention Center.
  • 1:43: More Shoreway action that leads into a longer action scene that took place along Lakeshore Blvd.
  • 2:04: Remember how I casually dismissed Cap 2 as shooting on the Fairview Bridge way back when? Well, I was wrong. Here’s that scene. What I did get right is the scene that they were likely shooting.
  • 2:18: This is guess, but I can’t imagine the Russo’s didn’t pick a favorite spot on the east side to shoot this scene. Anybody? Anybody?

As for interior locations – I’m just not sure. See any in here? Let us know!

'Avengers Infinity War' coming to Cleveland? Movie studio built on old Geauga Lake property? Both possible say Russo Brothers

Ivan Schwarz, Greater Cleveland Film Commission, Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, Cleveland natives and Marvel directors. They didn’t share any Captain America: Civil War spoilers, but directors Joe and Anthony Russo told fans that Avengers: Infinity War could land in Cleveland. “It’s on the list,” said Anthony. The reveal took place Saturday during a Wizard World Comic-Con Cleveland panel titled Let’s Shut Down Some Streets: Bringing the Avengers, Captain America and the Russo Brothers to Cleveland. The Russos, who grew up in Cleveland and graduated from Case Western Reserve University, were joined by Ivan Schwarz, director of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission. The trio discussed how the region could grow its production slate and how it could attract more features to Northeast Ohio. The first step, said Schwarz, was getting the Ohio legislature to raise the motion picture tax incentive from $25 million a year to $75 million. That legislation will go before Ohio lawmake

Tina Fey, Jay Roach Bringing Kent State Film '67 Shots' to Ohio

Student protestors at Kent State in 1970 Tina Fey is taking a serious turn, producing 67 Shots , a film about the 1970 Kent State shootings. The movie applied for the Ohio Film Tax Incentive earlier this year and plans to film in and around KSU sometime in 2018. 67 Shots focuses on events that led up to the shooting deaths of four students by Ohio National Guardsmen. The title comes from the numbers of shots those guardsmen fired into the unarmed crowd of protestors. Fey is producing alongside Jeff Richmond, her husband and a Kent State alum. Jay Roach, best known for the Austin Powers and Meet the Fockers franchises, will helm the project. Roach is making more socially and politically aware films at this stage in his career, including Trumbo and Game Change .
