Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Sequel Will Film in Atlanta


Marvel is setting up camp in Atlanta! Ant-Man wrapped in the city last year while Captain America 3 is set to begin production soon, and now Guardians of the Galaxy 2 has also announced that they will be filming in Atlanta as well.

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn announced via an impromptu Facebook Q&A that the sequel will be filming in the city. One fan had asked if Gunn planned on returning to Dragon Con again this year, and Gunn replied, “Maybe. I’m gonna try. Because we’re filming in Atlanta, I hope it works out for my schedule.”

We are speculating that it’s likely Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will film at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, since that’s where the other Marvel projects have filmed. Ant-Man was actually the first film to use the facilities which are about 30 minutes south of the city. Previously, Guardians of the Galaxy filmed in the UK at Shepperton Studios and Longcross Studios.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will hit theaters on May 5, 2017.
