If you’re not yet tired of Hollywood blowing up monuments, good news: Captain America 2 is filming in town this month. Shooting will take place this Sunday, May 5, on the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge, and then May 13 through 16 at unspecified locations across the city, according to a casting announcement from the Maryland Film Office (which uses the movie’s production alias “Freezer Burn”). 

Reprising his role as Steve Rogers/Captain America is Chris Evans, with Scarlett Johansson playing Natasha Romanoff/the Black Widow. Says a Marvel press release:

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier will pick up where Marvel’s The Avengers left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a. Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, DC.” 

Props to the producers for actually making it out here instead of photoshopping in the Capitol like everyone else does.
