Captain Marvel: Filming Locations & More

One of the most anticipated movies of 2019 didn’t disappoint. We loved every second of Captain Marvel: the incredible lovable characters, the pace and the rhythm, the tear-jerking tributes to Stan Lee and the subtle, yet powerful feminism hidden in several scenes and subtle little moments.

We haven’t yet visited any of the Captain Marvel filming locations, but there’s a good possibility of us getting to at least one or two quite soon. We’ll post about those separately!

But since we are a film tourism blog, we thought we’d take a quick look at some of Captain Marvel’s filming locations already! We can complete this list as we do a little more research and maybe even get some sceneframing done to make it our own!

1. The Air Force Base

The very Top Gun style, awesome air force base scenes were filmed at Edwards Air Force Base in Kern County, South California.

Variety posted a behind the scenes photo from Nellis Air Force Base, where Brie Larson shadowed Brigadier General Jeannie Leavitt, 57th Wing Commander for her iconic superhero role.

2. Los Angeles metro stations and city locations

Downtown Los Angeles is heavily featured in the beginning of Captain Marvel. Aside from Carol Danvers herself, we can see Nick Fury and the young Agent Phil Coulson on various locations including a small strip mall in Simi Valley.

Surprisingly, planet Torfa isn’t very far from the Blockbuster Video shop Danvers crashes into: apparently, a quarry off Bennett Rd in Simi Valley was used to film those planet-y bits.

Other LA filming locations include the Douglas metro station and the 7th Street / Metro Center Station.

3. The plane crash site

Where it all started… the crash site of the plane was staged at the shores of Shaver Lake outside Fresno in the Sierra National Forest. Judging by our little curious Google street view driveby, this location seems to be quite easily accessible and a lovely place for a picnic or a hike, too.

4. The flashback to a carnival

The flashback scenes of a carnival were filmed at Jim Hall Racing Club in Oxnard.

According to Vcstar.com, “Oxnard Assistant City Manager Jesus Nava told the City Council that a film crew of 150 people with approximately 135 extras will be in town to shoot a film set in 1986 starring Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson.”

5. Baton Rouge, Louisiana

It was widely reported that the last two weeks of the Captain Marvel filming took place in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. However, we haven’t yet tracked down any specific addresses or areas in the cities. We’re working on it though!

If you have a clue or better yet, witnessed some of the filming taking place when it did, pleeeeeease contact us and let us know! :)

6. Sony Studios, Culver City, California

Some of the sets were built at Sony Studios in Culver City.

This post will be updated with more location details, photos & tips as we find out more and do our research. If you have any information, tips & links, please leave a message below!

    • Hello! Thanks for the tip. I’ve googled the place and eek, that’s some dark history right there… :( super interesting, though. Do you know if they filmed in the area or did you recognize it? Any further details? :)

    Hey! I live in Los Angeles and I have another location where the train fight scene was filmed. It was on the 1st street Viaduct headed eastbound and in editing, they just removed the Los Angeles buildings in the background.

    The exterior parking lot of the Blockbuster and Radio Shack are in North Hollywood.

    Street View it and you can clearly see the Wells Fargo and Sears buildings and movie theater in the background during the rooftop chase scene after CM meets Nick Fury and Coulson.

    I swear it was at the LSU rural life museum in Baton Rouge.

  8. JOHN M LALLY says:

    Is Louisiana The Myrtles Plantation, St. Francisville LA?

    • Albert Blair says:

      Actually I’m thinking it was Ravenswood Plantation in Lockport, La. Someone was filming there last year but we weren’t sure what they were filming. After watching the movie was when it caught my attention.

    Advent Calendar, day 14: #CaptainAmerica The First Avenger Location: Albert Dock, Liverpool, UK ??? Albert Dock in Liverpool is a lovely tourist area. There s The Beatles Story and loads of fun little shops and restaurants and even a maritime museum. It s also where we took this shot from Captain America: The First Avenger. Fun fact: it s not actually filmed there, as we later found out. There are several of these docks along the Mersey River and they all look a lot alike. The actual filming location for the movie is a little bit north from where we were at Stanley Dock. It s currently under construction and sadly will no longer look anything like it does in the movie once it s done. Luckily we still have Albert Dock! #ChrisEvans #sceneframing #travel #Liverpool #AlbertDock #ItsLiverpool #UnwrapAlbertDock
