Are you a true Marvel fan?

May 6th, 2019

The entire Marvel Cinematic Universe film saga has been one adventurous ride for moviegoers and superhero lovers worldwide for the past decade. And as you already know, the entire series has culminated in the recent release of Avengers: Endgame, which had grossed a staggering USD $ 1.2 billion across the globe on its opening weekend alone. Seeing that our entire team at Fayyaz Travels are die-hard Marvel fans, we would like to chip in our share of the worldwide celebration. In a bid to honour our passion for the franchise, we walk down memory lane to some of the best Marvel Cinematic Universe film locations that you can visit in real life!

1. Iguazu Falls in Brazil and Argentina

Spotted in: Black Panther (2018)

In the movie, the Warrior Falls is the site where the ritual combats between the king of Wakanda and his challenger take place. In real life, it is called Iguazu Falls, a South American water system located on the border of Argentina and Brazil. While some close-ups and action sequences of the ritual combat scenes were shot on a soundstage, wide shots depicting the beauty of the Falls and its surroundings were filmed at Iguazu.

2. Exeter College in Oxford, England

Spotted in: Doctor Strange (2016)

Much of the mystical life-and-death battles that Doctor Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) had to endure in this movie involved the villain Kaecilius (played by Mads Mikkelsen). After stealing the Book of Cagliostro from Doctor Strange, Kaecilius had proceeded to contact Dormammu from the Dark Dimension, in outlining his revenge against his former guru, the Ancient One (played by Tilda Swinton). When he was reciting the contents of the book, he did so in the chapel of Exeter College in Oxford, England. Who would have thought, right?

3. Public Square in Ohio, USA

Spotted in: The Avengers (2012)

Let’s go all the way back to the first Avengers movie, right to the scene where Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston) had delivered an emotionally charged speech about humanity. While audiences were made to understand that the speech took place in Germany, the entire scene was actually shot outside of the Tower City Centre in Public Square, which is in Ohio, USA. Quite a distance between the two locations, but boy, did Marvel make it work!

4. Old Royal Naval College in London, England

Spotted in: Thor: The Dark World (2013)

The second installment in Thor’s three-part story sees the God of Thunder (played by Chris Hemsworth) going against the Dark Elf Malekith (played by Christopher Eccleston) in his attempts to save the universe from being taken over by pure evil. The supercharged battle had taken place on what is actually the site of Old Royal Naval College, which sits on the south bank of London’s iconic River Thames. Apparently, the site is a popular choice among Hollywood filmmakers; the College can also be seen in The King’s Speech (2010), Skyfall (2012), Les Misérables (2012), and even the hit Netflix show The Crown.

Spotted in: Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Much like the last two Avenger films (that is, Infinity War and Endgame), most of the timelines in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) had taken place in the cosmos. But in real life, the places they were shot at are real-life landmarks and buildings on Earth. A significant location had been the Liège-Guillemins Railway Station in Belgium, which, in the movie, had served as the Xandar Plaza.

6. Forte di Bard in Aosta Valley, Italy

Spotted in: Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

The second half of the second Avengers movie heavily centers around the fictional country of Sokovia, where the superhero team’s goal is to retrieve a Chitauri Scepter and the Mind Infinity Stone from HYDRA research base. While the interior of the research facility was filmed in England’s Dover Castle, its castle-like exteriors were borrowed from Forte di Bard. The fort is located in the region of Bard in Aosta Valley, Italy, and had served as an outpost in the 19th century to protect the entire valley against the raging forces of France’s Napoleon Bonaparte.
