  • Military reinforcements have arrived...
  • Is it real...or is it a foam prop?
  • Extras waiting in the alley. They look a little worse for wear...
  • Moving a very large light diffuser into place...
  • Straight-shot view of the Director's Booth.
  • Captain America's stunt double? Nope.
  • We were allowed to get surprisingly close!
  • Setting up the perfect shot.
  • OK, so where's Jon Favreau?
  • No ramp? No problem. Just use a Forklift!
