Production will begin in Johannesburg, South Africa and other parts of Gauteng sometime in mid-February, although principal actors such as Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson will not be a part of the shoot.
Here's what Gauteng Film Commission CEO Phindile Mbanujwa had to say in a statement.
"We're thrilled that Marvel Studios is bringing a major motion picture project to Johannesburg, and we're committed to showing them the very best our region has to offer."
Johannesburg Mayor [no_person|Parks Tausaid} had this to say in his statement.
"We are excited to host Marvel... It strengthens Johannesburg's position as a worldwide film production centre with first class facilities and production support. It also has a very positive impact for the region and is a great opportunity for the city to be showcased to a worldwide audience."
Production will take place in South Africa for two weeks later this month.
