HeyUGuys were on location in Surrey to grab some video and pictures of the Captain America set, the crew were done filming and items were being packed up, but this is still a very cool first look at the Captain America production.

First Captain America set pictures surface August 18th, 2010
The Captain America set was discovered by The Media Club in Bourne woods, Surrey, UK, and they’ve been kind enough to post up some snaps of the location and provide a little commentary (although no scene details are mentioned).
On set report
Yesterday I headed over to the film set for the upcoming big-budget 2011 Marvel release, Captain America: The First Avenger, after receiving a sneaky tip from a friend that the filming was taking place near my house. After trekking through the Bourne Woods in Farnham, Surrey, for about 10 minutes we reached a perimeter which, due to health and safety reason (AKA massive explosions etc), we were not allowed to cross… so we didn’t. There were some tanks and some fellas chilling out in army uniforms, just then I noticed a man with a dirty blonde grown-out military haircut and I pointed for my friend to see. At this point a northern security woman tottered over to ask us if we were okay, to which we replied “yes”. We then began having a friendly chat to the woman about the location that has been previously used in Gladiator, Children of Men, Harry Potter, Wolfman and the more recent Robin Hood. We then asked her what was going on currently– with all the military vehicles and alike. At this point a rather serious looking gentleman came over and began to explain that the production was that of a upcoming World War 2 film with the ridiculous name ‘Frostbite’. We pretended to eat up his barrel of lies until he went on his busy way (which took all of 2 seconds). The security lady then seemed rather proud of their deception before she noticed us whispering and giggling– like girls. She once again asked us if we were ok; this was the point at which our visit turned. We responded by informing her that we knew it wasn’t ‘Frostbite’, she played dumb and asked us what we ‘thought’ we knew. “Well,” I began “that guy over there is watching a Captain America Tshirt, that massive sticker on that trailer has Captain America on it, that’s Hayley Atwell (the female lead in the film) and we just saw Chris Evans (the actor playing Steve Rogers AKA Cpatain America) walking past in the costume barely covered by a trench coat.” This did have a shocking effect on the security woman, and she rudely claimed that we knew more than she did. She took a few steps back and we continued to talk quietly amongst ourselves behind the barrier. About a minute later a tall man walked towards and told us we were being ‘a nuisance’ we apologised and told him we were unaware; he then continued and told us that he was calling the police and that we would be arrested. At this point I wondered on what charges this could take place, he continued to glare at us. “Manners cost nothing, my friend” I replied. He didn’t take too kindly to this recommendation and we walked off.
Basically, it was very exciting to see Chris Evans in costume, the film set is looking good and the production is obviously being taken very seriously (as it should because Captain America is awesome) and the shoot is being kept on the super-secret down-low but regrettably some of the crew are so far up their own ass that they really ruined my excitement about a film I have been hugely looking forward to. Truth be told that guy is a tosser, and I went home to make posters to inform the public that ‘Frostbite’ is a lie and that there was free entry to the set of Captain America.
Avengers to begin shooting in February August 11th, 2010

Michael Goldenberg to pen Green Lantern 2 August 9th, 2010
With the first Green Lantern movie wrapped, but a long way from its release date and completion, Warner Bros. have confidently hired Michael Goldenberg as screenwriter for Green Lantern 2. Goldenberg has previously worked on Contact, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and of course, the first Green Lantern movie.
Green Lantern writers Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim have already been asked to work on a Green Lantern 2 treatment. At SDCC this year, Geoff Johns commented on a possible trilogy which sparked rumors of back-to-back sequels. Should Green Lantern be a success, it looks like the WB are positioning themselves to quickly launch into a sequel. Ryan Reynolds scheduling could be an issue, as he is in-line to play the lead in Fox’s Deadpool, but we’ll have to see what happens there.
Green Lantern production wraps August 9th, 2010
Production on the Green Lantern movie adaptation has ended today, Geoff Johns (comic book writer and chief creative officer) reveals via his Twitter account:
“GREEN LANTERN IS WRAPPED!!!! Finished the last shot today!!! Celebrating in New Orleans. As co-producer of the film, I am very, very proud of what we’ve got in store. Much more to come. Martin Campbell FTW.”
Production started on February 26th, totalling over 100 days.

Untitled Spider-man project filming this December August 5th, 2010
Spider-man 4 is no more, and much of the news on this blog now pertains to a vision of Spider-man that will never be made. Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Sam Raimi et al, will not be back in a Spider-man incarnation. I thought I ought to make that clear before continuing with the next piece of news.
Sony instead opted to reboot the Spider-man franchise with a new director, Marc Webb, with actor Andrew Garfield playing Peter Parker. Filming is set to start this December in Los Angeles, and is also expected to take place in New York. The project is being produced by Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad.
The film is scheduled for a July 3rd 2012 release.
