Superhero films would be nowhere near as epic if they didn’t have their huge, city-destroying fight scenes but does it always have to be New York? Well, it turns out that it’s not. I mean, it usually is New York but looking back at all the MCU films, you can see the spread of damages in this handy map.
Iron Man: Afghanistan (Low-Level); California (Low-Level)
The Incredible Hulk: Harlem, New York (Total Decimation)
Iron Man 2: Flushing Meadows, New York (Total Decimation)
Thor: New Mexico (Low-Level)
Captain America: The First Avenger: I don’t think that we can blame Cap for all WWI damages but we can’t differentiate so Cap doesn’t count.
The Avengers: Manhattan, New York (Total Decimation)
Iron Man 3: California (Low-Level); Rural Tennessee (Low-Level)
Thor: The Dark World: Greenwich, London (Mid-Level)
Captain America: The Winter Soldier: Washington DC (Mid-Level); New Jersey (Low-Level)
Guardians of the Galaxy: I couldn’t map Xandar.
Avengers: Age of Ultron: Seoul, South Korea (Low-Level); Sokovia isn’t a real place – I definitely didn’t have to look that up.
Ant-Man: San Francisco, California (Low-Level)
So where do you think Captain America: Civil War will destroy? Are you lucky enough to live somewhere that Marvel hasn’t wrecked? Let me know in the comments.
