Some high-schoolers will be in Atlanta Public Schools buildings in January, but they're actors. The newest installment in the "Spider-Man" series got special permission to film in two Atlanta schools. Filming is scheduled to begin at Frederick Douglass High School in January. Filming at Henry W. Grady High School likely will be in March. "Spider-Man" star Tom Holland visited patients at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta when he was filming her last time

In a behind-the-scenes look at the “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” Georgia’s board of film and music released a featurette that showed how some of New York City’s landmarks were recreated in Georgia’s Trilith Studios.

“You won’t know it’s not in New York when you see it,” said producer Amy Pascal in the video.

Using blue screens, intricate set designs and special effects, Trilith studios brings New York City to Georgia in Marvel’s latest film. The featurette shows the level of machinery and production design needed to achieve this feat.

Closing out the Homecoming trilogy, No Way Home filmed classroom scenes in Frederick Douglass High School and Midtown High School. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the Atlanta Public School System had barred people from entering schools, with the cast and crew of Spider-Man being a notable exception. Since the previous Spider-Man movies had been filmed using Frederick Douglass and Midtown High Schools as sets, the production was able to get special permission from the Atlanta Public Schools to continue for “No Way Home.”
