When the superhero flick comes out Friday, Atlantans may recognize a range of sites across the city

Calling all Marvel fans: Captain America is bringing Atlanta to the world.

When Captain America: Civil War comes out at the end of this week, Atlantans will likely recognize a few filming locations, according to On Location Vacations. And 11 Alive reports that one of the easiest to pick out will be the ornate sanctuary of Peachtree Christian Church.

Completed in 1928, the sanctuary at the top of Peachtree Street in Midtown played the part of a church in England for the film. Modeled after a Scottish abbey, the church's English Gothic design made it the most "authentic" filming location in the country, according to the Executive Minister Dan Johnson.

Look for scenes featuring Buckhead, Midtown, and downtown's Gulch when the film hits theaters this weekend.
