New "Spider-Man" movie will film in Atlanta

"We’re shooting in Atlanta for most of it, because they have studios there and I think it’s cheaper to build a New York set than it is to shoot (in New York), because it’s going to be very expensive," star Tom Holland told Super Hero Hype. "We probably will end up here (in New York) for one week or two."

Holland is currently appearing with Chris Hemsworth in "In the Heart of the Sea." Holland plays young Thomas Nickerson.


Chris Hemsworth got super skinny for "In the Heart of the Sea."

Holland was last in Atlanta for "Captain America: Civil War." He enjoyed working here and got along great with other cast members, especially Robert Downey Jr.

"They’re such easy people," Holland told SHH. "They’re lovely people and Robert did my first screen test and he was so welcoming. He took me aside and gave me a little advice about the audition."

The "Captain" crew stayed busy for months this year but did find a little time for fun. Star Chris Evans  made it rain in Buckhead one night by launching his own signature Captain America currency.  And he was spotted toning his monster physique an an area gym.

Robert Downey Jr. was spotted at this hot burger joint and at the Buckhead Diner where he posed for this awesome photo.

And a number of “Captain” stars took time to cheer on the Atlanta Hawks!
