What TV shows and movies are filming right now in Georgia?

'Black Lightning,' 'Cop Shop,' 'Young Roc,' 'The Resident,' 'Doom Patrol,' and 'Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan' are just some of the mega-productions happening right now.

ATLANTA — Production for some of 2021’s biggest upcoming blockbusters and binge-worthy shows are currently filming right now in Georgia.

According to Georgia Film, there’s at least 36 television pilots, series, reality shows, and feature films being made right now throughout areas of the state.

“Black Lightning,“Cop Shop,” ”Young Roc,” ”The Resident,” “Doom Patrol," and “Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan” are just some of the mega productions happening right now.

Here’s a look at some of the productions we’ve spotted in progress.

Spider-Man 3

Production for the officially still-untitled "Spider-Man 3" is in progress in metro Atlanta, and casting directors are now hiring actors to appear in scenes.

Residents recently posted pictures from afar of the upcoming film's set in Fayetteville at Trilith Studios -- formerly known as Pinewood Studios Atlanta.

Doug Scott shared pictures from outside the massive production in 11Alive's The A-Scene Facebook Group.

"Anyone know SN is filming at Pinewood. They built a massive 3 sided wall structure. Lots of blue screens. Look close in one picture you can see a SUV lifted high on a fork lift," he wrote.

The A-Scene’s Francesca Amiker reported the film is shooting under a new undisclosed production name, according to Project Casting.

Along with stars Tom Holland and Zendaya, the Sony film is expected to bring back most of the cast from "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and "Spider-Man: Far From Home," including Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, and Tony Revolori.

In addition, Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Doctor Strange in the MCU films, will appear in the new sequel.  

Doctor Strange is instrumental to a story weaving through multiple universes that will be showcased in the upcoming Marvel film "Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness." His presence in the Spider-Man sequel potentially implies a direct story tie between the two films.

According to recent stories, stars from earlier versions of Spider-Man's big-screen adventures will reportedly be appearing in the film, including Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina, and Kirsten Dunst. 

In addition, multiple reports indicate that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield -- who both played earlier versions of Spider-Man -- will appear in the new film, suggesting the possibility of a multiversal storyline in the motion picture.

According to the most recent scheduling information from Marvel, "Spider-Man 3" is slated for release on Dec. 17, 2021.
