CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
They were rolling cameras into place, making sure the lighting was just right, and preparing the explosives for a car crash scene. It was a busy morning on the set of Captain America Winter Soldier.
Insiders told us that Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Shield Director Nick Fury in the movie, was on the set, but was not spotted. Fans however got a great look at his stunt double who was ready to spring into action.
Filming of Marvel’s newest blockbuster also tied up traffic and turned pedestrians around as their normal walk to work had to be adjusted. Rockwell between East 9th and East 6th is closed, and so is East 6th, between Superior and St Clair, and police spent most of their time re-directing pedestrians.
“It’s cool to have them shooting, it’s a little bit of an inconvenience but I could use the exercise, so it’s a win-win. It’s not raining, it’s sunny and its just a few days or a few weeks,” said Jada who had to be re-directed as she tried to make her way to Key Tower.
Tammy Swann and Amy Zbreszkowski of Niagara Falls, New York were watching the morning shoot, they ran in the Cleveland Marathon and decided they were not about to go home without watching a little movie magic. “It’s really interesting to see them setting everything up and then we heard there was going to be an explosion, so were just going to stick around and wait and see if we see anything,” said Zbreszkowski.
