‘The Avengers’ cast are heading to Cumbernauld. No, we’re not joking
Filming will commence just down from the local B&Q next week
Forget New York, Johannesburg, Seoul and Pinewood Studios: Marvel’s next Avengers blockbuster will be filming in the same place they made “Gregory’s Girl” – none other than Cumbernauld.
Wow, some of the next Avengers film is being shot in Cumbernauld. Must be set in a post apocalyptic wasteland inhabited by mutants.

Many locals thought Cumbernauld would be the last place on Earth Iron Man would head, but it looks like they’ve been proven wrong as the Daily Record has revealed the cast will be arriving next week.
They're filming part of the new avengers film in Cumbernauld. Of all places to choose from they choose fucking Cumbernauld ??

We already reported that parts of Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” were to be filmed in Glasgow, but now the exact shooting location has been confirmed as Cumbernauld’s Wardpark Studios, where “Outlander” was filmed.
It might not be much to look at from outside, but Wardpark is at the centre of a potentially major expansion that would make it a world class studio – a move that would plant Cumbernauld firmly on the cinematic map.
Locals are bound to be hoping to spot the cast out in Paps on Saturday.
The Avengers need to hit paps when they're in Cumbernauld

That’s what we’d call contributing to the local economy. We wonder if Samuel L Jackson will wander into Cumbernauld’s McDonalds, asking for a cheeky Quarter Pounder with Cheese.
