Pinewood Studios in Atlanta seems to be becoming a Marvel favorite ever since the studio became the first company to shoot their movie “Ant-Man” last year. If reports are to be believed, Marvel will be returning to the studio for two more of their Phase 3 movies.
According to Screen Rant, since James Gunn recently, completed the second draft of the movie “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” the movie will begin their principal photography at the studio in February next year followed by one of the most important movie of the studio’s Phase 3 “Thor: Ragnarok.”
The “Thor” movie is expected to begin production in the studio in late 2016. This summer too the studio was graced by “Captain America: Civil War” when Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and the old “Avengers” gang ended up there. The previous “Thor” installment was shot at Pinewood Studios in London where “Doctor Strange” will be going to shoot.
According to reports, the reason why “Thor: Ragnarok” is being shot at the facility in Atlanta is because of the tax incentives of shooting in Atlanta and this facility is the newest and the most advanced one against all. It was previously reported that the movie will be shooting in Australia because Disney was so impressed by the locations in the oceanic country, but it can now be confirmed that the movie will be shot in Atlanta.
With Marvel’s decision to handle three movies per year starting from next year, it can be safe to assume that at least one or two movie will be shot in the studio facility in Atlanta itself.
Comicbook.com added that a Twitter account “Filming in Georgia” confirmed the news on the social networking service. It is being said that “Thor: Ragnarok” will feature Norse apocalypse and the probable destruction of Asgard. Everything would now depend on the God of Thunder to step up and save his world and perhaps others. The movie will release on November 3, 2017.
