Despite all of the rain this February, we still had quite a few projects filming in and around Atlanta. Here’s what we saw and where we saw it.
This is the month of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Atlanta. Three Disney+ series are in various states of production throughout the metropolitan area. First up, Loki (production codes: TBA & DNL) starring Tom Hiddleston along with MCU newcomers Sophia Di Martino, Owen Wilson, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. The series will focus on Loki, post-Avengers: Endgame, using the Tesseract to travel through time, altering the course of history. We first saw Loki on February 11, at Westview Cemetery. Production then moved to Loganville, shooting at the nearby rock quarry. Signs were spotted as far away as downtown Lawrenceville. Between February 20 and 24, crews worked at the Georgia Renaissance Festival grounds. Most recently, between the 25th and the 29th, scenes were filmed at North DeKalb Mall.
Meanwhile, fellow MCU series WandaVision (CLIFFORD/CAMELOT), starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, was spotted in Chattahoochee Hills on February 9. The next day, crews filmed in Williamson. Signs were spotted off of Cochran Mill Road near Palmetto on the 11th. More filming took place on February 12 in Griffin. On the 14th, the series was in Fayetteville. Three days later, on February 17, filming returned to Chattahoochee Hills. Most recently, between the 27th and the 28th, scenes were shot in Fairburn.

On February 14, signs were posted in Newnan at GA-34 and I-85. Most recently, crews staged an outdoor scene in downtown Decatur at the courthouse from February 25 through the 27th.
And speaking of superheroes, Sylvester Stallone is in town for a new movie this month, Samaritan (SAM). The film takes after a superhero’s epic battle ended with him disappearing. 20 years later, a young boy thinks he may have found him. So far, we’ve mainly spotted Samaritan downtown on February 3 and 5. Other scenes were shot off of Auburn Avenue near the King Center on February 12 and 26.
HBO Max, the new streaming service from WarnerMedia, is shooting a pilot, DMZ (BP), which is based on a comic book about a second American civil war occurring in the near future. In this world, Manhattan is a massive demilitarized zone. The pilot stars Rosario Dawson, Benjamin Bratt, and Josh Pais. A basecamp for DMZ was set up downtown at Courtland Street and John Portman Boulevard on February 19. More filming took place downtown on the 23rd. A scene was shot near the Atlanta Motor Speedway on February 26. Most recently, between the 27th and the 29th, areas downtown around Georgia State University were transformed into the show’s titular DMZ.
