CLEVELAND, Ohio — “Captain America:The Winter Soldier” landed in Cleveland Monday.

The sequel brought plenty of road closures around Rockwell and East 6th Street, as well.

But along with the orange cones come the Hollywood stars.

“I saw Samuel L Jackson here already. Scarlett Johaansson will be here. Obviously, Chris Evans playing Captain America will be here,” said Ivan Schwarz, president of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission.

Monday there was a shooting sequence, but no explosions.

“Just because of safety issues involved, we don’t give out the days or dates in which certain events will happen. I can’t give away the dates of explosions,” said John Pisani, publicist with Marvel Studios.

Road closures and detours will continue into Tuesday around Rockwell and East 6th Street.

Next week, filming will shut down the Shoreway from West 49th Street to Lake Avenue.
