Video: Captain America filming: Car explodes, stars do stunts

Video: Captain America arrives on Shoreway set

CLEVELAND -- Northeast Ohio is feeling more like Tinsel Town with mega-movie stars in town.

We sent Channel 3's Sara Shookman out and about for some star-gazing.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is at work on the West Shoreway and it's not just the gunfire that's getting attention.

"It's gotta be great for the community," said Joe Behm. "The excitement level with the different stars, so to speak, that are here."

Hollywood's elite are being spotted on the sidewalk and the set. On Monday the Black Widow -- played by starlet Scarlett Johansson --- appeared on set near West Third Street for the first time.

If you did a double take, you might have seen her stunt double and Chris Evan's as well.

Evans was also on set with his shield. He gave the city a twitter shoutout Sunday, apologizing for snarled traffic and calling Cleveland, "a very gracious host."

Keep your eyes open when you're out and about in Cleveland. That might really be Jennifer Garner in the booth next to you.

A customer at Pizzazz snapped a picture while Garner dined near the John Carroll University campus.

"I sat in a booth, I don't know, four or five booths away from her," said Robert Schneider.

"I think it's wonderful. It brings a lot of attention to local merchants," said Nancy, who works at the restaurant.

Garner and her family are rumored to be staying just streets away from the Ben and Jerry's where they've been frequent customers.

Her co-star Kevin Costner riled fans at a recent Tribe game.

Star sightings are new for Clevelanders -- but most seem to be enjoying the novelty.














"It's a great thing. Anything like that can help the image of Cleveland," said Schneider. 
So far, the Greater Cleveland Film Commission says the stars all are truly enjoying their time here.

If you're new to star-gazing, the only rules are respect their space and treat them like you would want to be treated.

And tweet us a picture at @wkyc using hashtags #draftday and #Cap2CLE.
