Director and cast 'Suicide Squad sequel munched at this Atlanta eatery

Poor Calvin’s, which is an Asian fusion restaurant off Piedmont, was the choice for dinning for director James Gunn.

ATLANTA — The sequel to Suicide Squad is in full swing, and we spotted director and some members of the cast spending time off set in the city.

The cast of the movie is filming in town this week, and we found out where they like to grub!

Poor Calvin’s, which is an Asian fusion restaurant off Piedmont, was the choice for dinning for director James Gunn.

He posted these photos on his Instagram: You can see Michael Rooker, Pom Klementief from "Guardians of the Galaxy," Jennifer Holland and German Actor Flula Borg. No sign of Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis or John Cena.

The A-Scene found out the eatery is a tradition for the crew. We found this photo of actress Jennifer Holland’s page at the same restaurant back in 2016.

James says he goes for the goat cheese.

“Suicide Squad," which filmed in Toronto for the original, began production in Atlanta in September.

The action-packed film is part of the shared DC cinematic universe that began with “Man of Steel” and continued with 2016's “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” with Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman.

Zack Snyder, the director of both movies, is an executive producer on "Suicide Squad," along with his wife Deborah and DC's chief creative officer Geoff Johns, who are also back for the sequel.

In the original film, government boss Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) forced the villains into service, offering them lighter prison sentences in exchange for going on a dangerous (and secret) mission

The "Suicide Squad" sequel comes out August 2021.
