Os filmes do Universo Cinematográfico Marvel (UCM) já se passaram em uma série de locais diferentes mundo afora, como Nova York, Londres, Edimburgo, entre outras cidades famosas. Como a mente de seus fãs é sempre muito fértil, um deles montou um perfil no Instagram e fez uma brincadeira criativa: colocou fotos dos principais momentos na franquia bem nos lugares em que foram gravados.
O responsável por esse trabalho é o perfil @steppingthroughfilm, de um blogueiro chamado Thomas Duke. Ele dedicou tanto tempo para esse projeto que conseguiu tirar fotos nas várias cidades do mundo em que os filmes do UCM se passaram.
Por exemplo, você se lembra daquela imagem do primeiro filme dos Vingadores em que eles se reuniram pela primeira vez? Duke achou o local exato em que a cena foi gravada e a misturou com a foto do momento.

“AVENGERS… ASSEMBLE!” • My inner child is screaming with SO MUCH joy right now! Ah, I can’t believe I’m actually standing here in New York City among the countless iconic streets that have appeared on screen. I’ve only ever seen this city through the screen so to now stand here and see it all for the reality of what it is… it’s all real! My first stop just had to be the most iconic moment in comic book history, the sweeping 360 degree shot of the Avengers (2012) first teaming up together during the ‘Battle of New York’. Just wow! After all these years of following the Marvel saga and with the memory of watching this scene in cinemas very much engrained in my brain, to then stand in the same fictional place where the action ‘happened’ is just crazy to me. The beginning of everything that’s come after it, the first proper look at all of these INCREDIBLE characters together, and of course Tony Stark still alive and well… I love you 3000! • You won’t be surprised to know that the majority of the New York battle in the film was shot on a set. They re-created this road on Park Avenue (which is right in front of Grand Central Terminal!) so that they had the flexibility of space and movement for all of the action needing to be captured. Either way, set or not, this is the place where they supposedly stood and I’m so happy that it’s all very much photo real compared to the film. This road was very busy though… it made it very difficult to photograph but I really wanted to get it! • • #avengers #avengersassemble #newyork #ironman #tonystark #captainamerica #thor #hulk #marvel #robertdowneyjr #chrisevans #film #photography #art #nyc #explore
Duke também foi até a estação de trem de Edimburgo em que a Feiticeira Escarlate lutou contra a Ordem Negra de Thanos em Vingadores: Guerra Infinita.

“They can't stop him, Wanda, but we can. Look at me. You have the power to destroy the stone." • On a train platform in the heart of Edinburgh lies the filming location for one of the biggest films in cinematic history; Avengers: Infinity War. With Avengers: Endgame only 1 week away(!) I just couldn’t help but visit an iconic scene from the past film. You’ll recognise this as the place where Captain America makes his entrance out of the shadows to protect his friends. I never thought I’d warm to the relationship between Wanda and Vision but the Marvel Cinematic Universe has proved me wrong. The connection these two hold is irreplacable. Two individuals who stand out because of their differences, always protecting one another. This scene comes as Wanda and Vision are attacked, with the enemy wanting to rip an Infinity Stone out of Vision’s head and his life along with it. I chose this shot to capture because it says so much. The desperation on Wanda’s face matched with the power surging through her fingertips – all there to serve the purpose of protecting the one true companion that she couldn’t bare to lose. • Edinburgh was stunning! My first ever time in the city and everything about it was just beautiful. They filmed this scene in 2017 at around 3am in the morning! It all takes place at night. I walked around the station trying to find the right place and luckily came across this platform. I had to wait for a train for the photo too… it took some patience. Once again, Marvel films are very hard to capture. The use of effects and heavy manipulation of the scenery means that nothing is quite what it seems. They added all those windows in for example! They had a huge green screen for filming too and the actors entered very secretly… • • #avengers #infinitywar #endgame #superhero #mcu #scarletwitch #elizabetholsen #paulbettany #marvel #edinburgh #explore #tourism #film #photography #art #filmlocation
Lembra aquela corrida matinal do Capitão América e o Falcão no segundo filme do herói, Capitão América: O Soldado Invernal? O blogueiro também não se esqueceu dela.

“On your left.” • This scene (and quote) has become a staple for the friendship between Steve Rogers & Sam Wilson. From Captain America: The Winter Soldier (one of the best Marvel films in my opinion) to Avengers: Endgame, I was so excited to follow in their footsteps. • It feels like the perfect time to share this photo as this weekend has been a @marvel extravaganza! The next slate of films up until 2021 have been announced and I can’t even explain the excitement for all that is coming! Doctor Strange 2, Black Widow, Shang-Chi, Thor 4… it’s incredible to see the strength continue with these films… the community growing even more… and the hype always testing our spirits. Avengers: Endgame ended an era earlier this year and today it has become the BIGGEST FILM OF ALL TIME – a huge milestone in the world of cinema. That’s partly why this photo feels so perfect right now. The line, “On your left” was brought full circle in the 3rd act of Avengers: Endgame as a nice little throwback to this scene. It was one of the most heart wrenching moments in the film as the collective audience all cheered and sobbed knowing that the line originated from this wholesome scene between two soldiers. It’s moments like these which make me so happy to follow this filmmaking journey and watch all of the emotional connections unfold from each director and production. • During my time in America I made my way over to Washington D.C. I’ve seen this place on the screen countless times so, just like New York, it was magical to visit this location for the first time. This scene was first on my list to capture as it’s such a fun moment in the MCU. With Chris Evans having now hung up his shield and passed it on to Anthony Mackie, it was quite surreal to snap this shot as this truly symbolises the ‘passing of the torch’ in some way – two Captain America’s in one snap! • • #avengersendgame #captainamerica #marvel #stanlee #chrisevans #anthonymackie #russobrothers #sdcc #superhero #ironman #tonystark #doctorstrange #fans #washingtondc #film #photography #art #mydccool #visittheusa @visittheusa
E Duke parece não ter limites para executar esse projeto. Em uma postagem recente, ele foi até a vila que se tornou Nova Asgard em Vingadores Ultimato.

“First they lost Asgard and then half their people, they’re probably just happy to have a home.” 🏠 • For 2 days in May 2017 Marvel took over this small little fishing village to shoot some scenes for ‘Avengers: Endgame’. Locals recall seeing Mark Ruffalo in a CGI Hulk suit (I would LOVE to see that with my own eyes!) and Chris Hemsworth walking around. The extras are all locals which I love, some being the owners of the businesses in the village. Better yet, Marvel donated to the independent life boat crew which is at the centre of the town – I witnessed a real rescue while walking around too! • It was quite surreal to watch this film in the cinema and notice that the landscape looked very ‘homely’. I couldn’t stop smiling when the Hulk and Rocket Racoon came driving in on the back of a jeep in what looked to be UK/Scotland! It’s nice to have a real backdrop instead of a green screen and to see such iconic characters in such a ‘normal’ location was also really interesting. More shots to share soon! • • #avengers #avengersendgame #thor #hulk #valkyrie #chrishemsworth #markruffalo #tessathompson #marvel #stanlee #superheroes #tonystark #captainamerica #iloveyou3000 #disney #d23 #mcu #spiderman #stabbs #scotlandisnow #visitscotland #film #photography #art
A imaginação do blogueiro não se restringiu apenas aos filmes do UCM. Ele também foi ao local do primeiro filme do Homem-Aranha (da trilogia de Sam Raimi) em que o Tio Ben disse a Peter Parker a famosa frase “com grandes poderes, vêm grandes responsabilidades”.

“With great power comes great responsibility.” 💔 • Happy Spider-Man Day! 🕷 • Spider-Man has inspired millions and well & truly ‘stuck’ around for decades since his creation. It’s so wonderful to have this relatable character out there in the cinematic landscape and on the page. He was thought up by Stan Lee and first appeared in comic form in August 1962, hence the 1st August has slowly become an annual celebration for the superhero. Since then, the character has had numerous iterations on screen which is where most fans (me included!) have grappled onto the personality of teenage kid turned superhero, Peter Parker. Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, Tom Holland; 3 distinct interpretations by 3 incredibly talented individuals. I grew up with Tobey Maguire and so that’s partly why I chose this scenic photo to share today – it’s also an incredibly pivotal moment in the Spider-Man universe with Peter being told by his Uncle Ben that with “great power comes great responsibility”. This life lesson has become common lore in the Spider-Man story and one that carries a much more emotional weight after the fate of Uncle Ben. So touchingly is it portrayed in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man (2002), the tears run high here. • This was shot outside of the New York Public Library. Maguire is about to be dropped off by his Uncle and so this scene takes place in his car… as you can probably tell. It took place around 20 years ago now so not everything looked identical to the screen when I visited. It was bizarre to stand here after watching this film as a kid… the time in my life when I wished I could fly through cities, to now. Time goes by! The actual death scene was also filmed in front of the Library. It’s such a moving moment too which made it that much more powerful for me, I still can’t believe it really. • • #spiderman #nationalspidermanday #tobeymaguire #andrewgarfield #tomholland #uncleben #family #love #teenager #dream #stanlee #comicbook #avengers #anniversary #film #photography #art #superhero #newyork #nyc #city #scene #memorable
