Did anyone else notice they used the Lloyd's Building in Guardians of the Galaxy, as the exterior of a futuristic, alien skyscraper? Am I crazy? I looked exactly like it.

I'm looking forward to the diamond tower rising as well as wood wharf starting, which will hopefully be sooner rather than later.

You're almost certainly right, they did film in London. When I watched it I thought I saw the Millennium bridge and apparently that was used too (Source: http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/i...oUsYz8MpZt43Mi)

Found this video on YouTube. You can see buildings that are been built.
It was uploaded on the 30 Oct 2014, so fairly recent.
Not my video.
