Where Was The Suicide Squad Filmed?

The Suicide Squad was filmed at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. According to James Gunn, the director, The Suicide Squad had the biggest filming set built for a WB movie ever.

The Jotunheim prison and its surroundings were as big as three football fields. The team also created a warehouse-sized forest with a Bamboo cage that was over 2 meters deep.

The second part of The Suicide Squad, the island scene, was filmed in Panama. It took the production team four months to wrap up filming in both locations.

The overall budget for The Suicide Squad was over $180 million, and Warner Bros. hopes the movie to turn into profit and bring back its production costs as well as a satisfying amount of profit for the company.

At the end of the day, it is the movie’s commercial performance that would be the main factor for considering a sequel.

The Suicide Squad was officially premiered last night on HBO Max. You can watch it from home by subscribing to the service.
