Last week we heard that those Captain America re-shoots that were rumored to be taking place in the U.K.were actually happening in L.A.
Our first tip came from an interesting exchange on Twitter between two of our followers last week:
@NKOTBhasMyHeart: @olv Hi! Do you have any info on Frost Bite? Filming in Ventura County.
@Josh_Wilding:@olv @NKOTBhasMyHeart Captain America was called “Frostbite” while filming here in the UK. Reshoots perhaps?
@Josh_Wilding: @olv Stan Lee has said that he’s being fitted for his Captain America cameo tomorrow. Perhaps those “Frostbite” signs were related to it!
Then today we received a permit issued for filming in L.A. for Vita Ray Productions Inc/ Frostbite which, sure enough, is the production company for Captain America. Check out the details below:
THE PRODUCTION COMPANY: Vita Ray Productions Inc

It looks like @Josh_Wilding was right! If you spot Captain America filming in L.A., let us know about it at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Update: As we’ve mentioned in our recent Daily Filming Location posts, The Avengers film is also in pre-production in Los Angeles and we’ve heard that the shoot for the permit above may include Captain America, but it may be for a scene in The Avengers…stay tuned…
