One-Shot: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer | MCU Location Scout

Powdered or frosted donuts?

Driving across the California desert on his way to New Mexico, Agent Coulson stops at a Roxxon gas station for a fill up and a snack. Unfortunate timing for two men that pick that time to rob the place. This short film was included on the Captain America: The First Avenger DVD.


Establishing shots of the desert were shot outside of Pearblossom/Palmdale in the California desert. The first image below seems to have been shot from around 155th St E in Pearblossom, as seen in the street view below. Other desert shots were also filmed in this area.




The gas station used for the robbery appears to be a functioning Chevron Station at 13030 Pearblossom Hwy, Pearblossom, CA (the address seen above the door in the 2nd screen shot below). This also happens to be just North of the location where the diner sequence for Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant was filmed.
