In The Region:
The sounds of gunfire and explosions rocked downtown Cleveland this afternoon…followed by the cheers of passersby, who stood around and waited for more mayhem. For Ohio Public Radio, WCPN's Brian Bull explains, there’s no need to fear, Captain America is here. Or more accurately, his film crew.

If you were wandering near 6th and Rockwell over lunch, you might’ve dropped your soda and chips upon as the sound of gunfired echoed downtown.
But it’s all part of the show, in what appears to be a chase and shootout scene filmed at an intersection made up to look like a Washington, D.C., Metro stop.

If you were lucky, you also might have spotted actor Samuel L. Jackson – or his stunt double, anyway – walking around the set. He plays S.H.I.E.L.D agent Nick Fury, in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”, the latest superhero movie in the Marvel franchise. Filming is being done across the Greater Cleveland area through the end of June, with other actors like Chris Evans and Scarlett Johanson potentially making appearances.

Just be aware though, that there’s no public viewing save from behind the barricades. And if you get a little too close, you’ll be shooed away by security workers with the film crew.
