Police have set up a command post in the area

Manhattan Beach Studios were evacuated Tuesday due to a bomb threat, TheWrap has learned.

Police set up a command post at the corner of 33rd and Aviation in Manhattan Beach, around 11 a.m. No residents were evacuated.

Several journalists in the area also tweeted about the bomb threat, including Julie Sone with ABC 7 News in Los Angeles.

Manhattan Beach Studios Media Campus, formerly Raleigh Manhattan Beach Studios, was home to Marvel Studios before the company was bought by Disney and relocated to Glendale last year.

The studio facility most recently served as a filming location for “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” and James Cameron's “Avatar” sequels are slated to film there as well.
