When we here at ScienceFiction.com mention the “Institute For Infectious Disease,” you might think that we’re talking about a location in AMC’s upcoming ‘Walking Dead’ companion series ‘Fear The Walking Dead.’ After all, it sounds like a place where people might go to subdue an impending zombie virus, right? Well, this place is actually located in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and we’ll be seeing it in the first film of Phase Three, which stars the Star-Spangled Avenger and a number of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Filming is currently underway in Atlanta, Georgia for ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and Comic Book Movie has a video from scenes set at the Institute For Infectious Disease, which is seemingly located somewhere in Africa. In the video below, you can see an awesome stunt involving a garbage truck being flipped over onto the entrance of the institute:

In this world of CGI everything, it’s quite refreshing to see practical effects utilized whenever possible. Sure, none of the plethora of heroes that are slated to appear in the film were involved in this scene (as far as we can tell so far), but it’s still a cool thing to check out.
It’s currently unclear where this action fits into the grand scheme of things, but as a reminder of what’s going on, here’s the film’s official synopsis:
‘Captain America: Civil War’ picks up where ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
