Atlanta Locals Unhappy With Spider-Man 3 Filming In School District Amidst School Ban

Spider-Man 3 seems to be making some locals mad. COVID-19 has caused many businesses to close – especially schools. Especially now, with cases rising. But, regardless of this, Sony’s upcoming film is filming in Atlanta – and two locations are not making locals happy.

Schools are being shut down, but Ian Easterbrook – who is the location manager for Spider-Man 3 – marked Midtown School of Science and Technology as an exception to no filming allowed in Atlanta schools. Fredrick Douglas High and Henry W. Grady High are used to create the Midtown School since there is a “no students” ban on these schools.

This apparently is not making locals happy, who have expressed their frustration:

Why parents in some Georgia school districts are frustrated, in a nutshell: Atlanta students still don’t know when they can return to classrooms, but the cast of “Spider-Man” is about to film in two local high schools. #gapol

Marvel Studios has supposedly offered the Atlanta school systems $50k to film in their schools. Easterbrook also stated in an email:

“I know that APS is currently not accepting filming applications due to the COVID pandemic, and I know that filming a new movie quickly falls to the bottom of the priority list.”

What do you think about this situation?
