More behind-the-scenes photos from Captain America: The First Avenger

I know a little German and even less French, but no Dutch. So unfortunately I cannot translate this CAPTAIN AMERICA article from Dutch magazine, Veronica.

However, there are pretty new pictures for you to gaze upon. Deronda, site owner of The Chris Evans Blog and the one responsible for uploading the scans, tried her best to translate some of the article. Apparently nothing new is in it other than a couple of tidbits: "25 shields were made for the production. Small ones were made for the fighting and running, and one was even made out of bronze that was impossible to lift. Chris Evans in some scenes threw a "green frisbee" that will be turned into the shield using special effects."

Here's some of what Deronda translated from the article:

After the success of the "Hulk" and the "Iron Man"-movies there were more and more voices to finally devote a big blockbuster movie to Captain America. In our country a not so familiar superhero, but in his own country he's been popular for generations. 'Cap' was born during World War II as a feared enemy of the Nazis. Nowadays the propaganda is no longer required so now he is fighting evil in general. The movie about his beginning takes place for a large part in New York during the forties. Filming on location was difficult, but Manchester and Liverpool turned out to be perfect to continue as Brooklyn. The filming there caused some headaches though, because the public filming spots were difficult to keep secret. For example the filming of a car explosion in Manchester was online within six minutes."

"When we visit the set, the whole crew has relocated to a couple of studio's within London where work continues to the impressive decors. They work against the clock, while filming on one set, the next is still under construction. It's like we are walking on a construction site, where the walls are hanging full with blueprints of the most fantastic constructions. Some of them are so big that just a part of it is build. Production designer Rick Heinrichs:"The nice thing of Captain America is that it's a mixture of World War II and sciencefiction. Some ideas from then are transported to modern times. We wanted to do justice to history and at the same time to the comic."

Extra Tidbit: What are your hopes for this film? How many people are going to write something along the lines of "not sucking"?
