Hate to be the bearer of bad news but that’s not Chris Evans, it’s his stunt double. However, these are some on set photos of the upcoming ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ thanks to British newspaper, The Daily Mail. An excerpt from their report revealed only minor details on the shooting location from the London countryside:
“And today his stunt double was snapped in a leafy London location, dressed in full regalia, riding a US Army Indian motorcycle.
True to the original character, the costume comprised the colours of the American flag, complete with a huge star on the chest, helmet and cape.
There was also a magnificent Forties-style car on set, which was seen being driven through a woodland location, as well as some more futuristic looking motorcycles.”
On set photos showed everything from Captain America’s costume and stupid wings on his helmet (that’s right) to some pretty badass looking HYDRA henchmen. Look very closely at the super awesome, futuristic looking bikes and car, you can see HYDRA’s logo (nerd blush). Chris’s stunt double even has an assistant on hand between shoots, lucky man. If Evan’s even once say’s being Captain America is “tough” remember, his stunt double did all the hard work that day. Yeah, really hard work. Take look below at the on set sneak peek:
