MCU: Location Scout – Jane Foster Apartment

LOCATION: Jane Foster Apartment (1B Southwark St, London SE1 1RQ, UK) SHOW: Thor: The Dark World, 2013 Nothing beats hard work. Except luck. I won’t say I found this location purely on luck. It was scientifically derived, but in the end, it was pretty lucky! In the end credit scene of Thor: The Dark World, we get an exterior shot of a building, and then cut to see Thor on Jane’s balcony. Anyone familiar with film and filmmaking knows that just because you see two pieces of film edited together, doesn’t mean that the locations of those two places...

MCU: Location Scout – Schäfer Sicherheitsdienst

LOCATION: Schäfer Sicherheitsdienst (Aperture Center Building, 5700 University Blvd SE, Albuquerque, NM 87106) SHOW: Avengers, 2012 Determining where this location was proved to be tricky and time consuming. It was tricky, because the majority of footage for the Germany scenes was shot in Cleveland, Ohio, as were the New York sequences. Time consuming, because assuming that something is shot in Cleveland, leaves you wandering around that city looking for the location. If I ever spend more than about 30 consecutive minutes looking for a site, I’ll put my computer down or move on to something else. Unless I’m absolutely...

MCU: Location Scout – County Hospital

LOCATION: County Hospital (Toney Anaya Building, 2550 Cerrillos Rd, Santa Fe, NM 87505) SHOW: Thor, 2011 This location was another one that I sort of “lucked” into finding. Thor doesn’t have many “real world” locations, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find the ones it does. So while reading through MarvelFilmGuide again, they mentioned that the County Hospital was an unknown location. They had even tweeted out to their followers to see if anyone recognized it. They thought it might be in L.A. or New Mexico (where the film was shot). When I look at the images of...

MCU: Location Scout – SHIELD Warehouse

LOCATION: SHIELD Warehouse (590 S Santa Fe Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90013) SHOW: Iron Man 2, 2010 I’ve not stuck to any particular order when adding locations to the MCU Location Map. I started with the Daredevil and Jessica Jones show on Netflix. I then decided to extend the project to the films. By that time Luke Cage and Iron Fist were coming out on Netflix. And then I decided to go whole hog, and add in Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter. Once I started adding the movies, I went through them in order, adding the obvious locations...

MCU: Location Scout – Credits

LOCATION: The Real World SHOW: None Before we continue with the Locations, I wanted to take a moment, and thank a number of people on the Internet for helping with this search. I stand on the shoulders of those who came before me, and my work is based off of work that they had previously put in. My primary tool, is observation. I watch the show/film/episode and see what I can see. Are there any signs? Is it a place I recognize, or nearly recognize that can give me a starting place to look? Do I recognize the location...

MCU: Location Scout – Karen Page Apartment

LOCATION: Karen Page Apartment (39 Franklin St, Brooklyn, NY 11222) SHOW: Daredevil, S01E01 “Into The Ring” When I started this project, I decided I was only going to figure out where each exterior location was filmed in New York for the Netflix series. That was it. Exteriors only. This was a decision made at the time when Daredevil Season 2 premiered, so I went back and started looking at Season 1. No big deal right? Since that time, the project has grown to interiors as well as the entire MCU, because I cannot do anything half-assed. But I digress…...
