  1. Hi, nice article. Just a small correction: "French-speaking corner northwest of Italy" - Italian is the main language over here too :)

  2. Was it filmed in the building opposite Wembley stadium/sse arena?

  3. Wembley stadium in London? We don't think so...

  4. Hi, great post. Makes clear where it was filmed, so thank you! But I was still wondering where was the black widow red room flashback filmed? The place looked amazing! Thank you!
