Where was Suicide Squad Filmed

The new movie is not Suicide Squad 2, because it's not a sequel, but it shares universe and some of the actors of this first -sorry, previous- movie.

The cast of this gang of dark and entertaining characters is led by Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as the naughty Harley Quinn, and Jared Leto as Joker.

The dangerous criminals will have to save the world (or in this case, the world of Midway City, the fictional metropolis from the DC film universe), in a desperate mission from a secret government agency.
