In July of last year, I received an email with some pictures of a destroyed New York street. Luckily no one was injured, and you will be able to see this destruction this weekend in Avengers: Infinity War!
LOCATION: Destroyed New York Street (79 Walton St NW Atlanta, GA)
SHOW: Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
This is not your standard MCU: Location Scout post. I’m not going to look at a film and try to figure out where a scene was shot. Instead, I have actual first-hand knowledge. And I’m going to present it to you in advance of the film even being in theaters!
My friend Tim was visiting Atlanta for a business conference, and while wandering around the downtown area he came upon the destructive images seen here. I can only imagine the way he gained access to the location, to take the pictures below, was by schmoozing the security guard and letting him know he was involved with Emergency Management (this would count as a business expense I then assume). Yeah! That’s got to be the way it went.
I’ll present the images unedited below, showing how this Atlanta street was transformed into a New York street that has seen a (presumed) alien invasion and superhero battle. This location can been seen in the existing Avengers: Infinity War trailers. It is also near a location used for Spider-Man: Homecoming and Captain America: Civil War.

Behind every scene in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a location. Some are iconic. Some are functional. Some are completely fantastic. But all of them are there to support the story.
