Where was Justice League filmed? Guide to ALL the Filming locations

Posted by

HBO Max has re-released the 2017 DC superhero movie in a four-hour-long director's-cut called Zack Snyder's Justice League. The troubled production of the original film lead to the lowest grossing movie in the franchise and a critical failure.

This much longer version than the theatrical cut had an extra budget of $70 million to revamp the visual effects, score, editing, and also for the filming of new footage.

The initial plan was also to produce a miniseries, but the project was finally discarded. Justice League was primarily filmed in various locations in England and Iceland.

Justice League Location

In this DC Extended Universe installment, the mighty troupe of warrior champions is looking for three magical Mother Boxes to save the world from the evil Steppenwolf (played by Ciarán Hinds), and his army of Parademons.

Ben Affleck leads the returning cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, the Amazon from Themyscira Island, Henry -The Witcher- Cavill as Superman, Jason Momoa (who became a celebrity after playing the role of Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and the comic relief of the group, The Flash, is played by Ezra Miller.

Welcome to the updated guide to the filming locations of Justice League, including the new ones featured in Zack Snyder's version - Contains no spoilers!

Justice League drehorte
The sequence in London shows a few establishing shots of the city, with The Shard skyscraper and the Tower Bridge.

Before arriving at its final destination, the vans of the militant group pass by the iconic St. Paul's Cathedral.


Where is Justice League set
The scene of the group who clashes with Wonder Woman, led by Irish actor Michael McElhatton, was filmed at the Central Criminal Court (also known as The Old Bailey) in London.

The gorgeous interior lobby of this historical building, decorated with marbles and statues, was completed in 1902.

Filming Zack Snyder cut scene
In one of the new added scenes for Zack Snyder's cut, Lois Lane (played by Amy Adams) leaves a restaurant when it starts raining.

The shoot was filmed at the Fred and Ginger Coffee at 38 High St in Kings Langley, a small village in Hertfordshire near London.

The second time that the coffee appears in the movie, at the beginning of part five, All the king's horses, the bar looks like a set with some digital effects on it.

Aquaman village location
The shoot in Iceland is the most interesting location of the whole movie.

The scenes at Aquaman's town, Amnesty Bay in Maine, were filmed in Djúpavík, a tiny village in the remote region of the Westfjords.

Djupavik town in Iceland
Located in the remote and beautiful northwestern peninsula of Iceland, Djúpavík is surrounded by spectacular scenery.

The hamlet consists of various houses, a hotel, and the old herring factory that was used for filming.

Soundstage at Warner Bros Leavesden studios
Justice League made extensive use of studio sets and locations entirely created by CGI. The production was based at the Warner Bros Leavesden Studios in England.

Also, reshoots for Zack Snyder's Justice League version took place in the massive hangars of the old airfield in Cardington Studios (Bedfordshire).


Central City Justice League
The new scene with The Flash set in the fictional Central City was also filmed in a massive set built at Leavesden Studios.

Also, a few more scenes taking place in the streets of Gotham City  were recorded here.


Superman house in Smallville
Located within a convenient distance from the studios, Superman's family farmhouse in Smallville was built at the Bovingdon Airfield.

This former Royal Air Force station in Hertfordshire served as a filming location for Bohemian Rhapsody, Fast and Furious 6, Rogue One, 1917, and Good Omens among many other productions.

Justice League city
The lake where Bruce Wayne has his modernist villa (pictured) is located at the biological reserve of Southill Lake and Woods in Bedfordshire.

Batmannotes.com spotted the cast and crew filming in the Shorts Building in Shortstown near Bedford (England). It was shown briefly in the background of a TV news show when Diana Prince is working in the Louvre’s antiquities department in Paris.

This section was removed from the new version. The Luton Hoo estate also appears in the credits of the movie, but it seems that it didn't make it to the new cut.

Star Labs Gotham City
The S.T.A.R. Labs in Gotham City is a CGI image created using the skyline of Chicago in the background.

Chicago is easy to recognize thanks to the diamond-shaped facade of the Crain Communications Building.

If this complex was real, it would be standing between Millennium Park and Maggie Daley Park.

Themyscira Island Kleftiko Greece
Although it's hard to appreciate, the model in real life for the landscape of Themyscira Island is the dazzling rock formations emerging from the sea at Kleftiko beach in Milos Island, Greece.

Justice League house
Barry Allen's home was filmed in the facilities of the Frogmore Paper Mill, an industrial heritage site located in Apsley, Hemel Hempstead.

The British Museum in London also appears in a short scene with Wonder Woman at the end of the original movie.

Skrunda in Latvia
A local newspaper reported that film crews were photographing and making three-dimensional scans of the streets of the former military town of Skrunda in Latvia.

This sort of Chernobyl-esque area from the USSR times was the source of inspiration for the village in Russia where the last battle takes place.

Yacht final credits scene
The post-credits scene with Max Luthor (played by Jesse Eisenberg) and Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello) onboard the Icon Yacht was filmed off the coast of Monaco, the small European city-state.

  2. The Superman black banner is from the tower bridge image from the West. The Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard is the glass building.
