Some of Black Panther Will Be Shot in South Korea
Black Panther is a little more than a year away, and we’ve been receiving a steady amount of news on the film leading up to its release. We already know that production on the film has started, and that Marvel is filming most of the movie in Atlanta, but it looks like director Ryan Coogler is looking to shoot at a location that one of the previous Avengers‘ film shot at.
According to Yonhap News, The South Korean branch of The Walt Disney Company has stated Marvel Studios will be filming Black Panther in both Atlanta and Korea. The Report also states that similar to when Marvel was shooting Avengers: Age of Ultron, the “Seoul metropolitan government, culture ministry, and other related governmental bodies provided the team with necessary support.”
It will be interesting to see yet another Marvel film shooting a portion of it in South Korea, especially with the film being Black Panther. However, we’re curious as to why? Could it be a flashback sequence, or will T’Challa be on the country looking for something following the time the Avengers were in Korea for Age of Ultron?
We don’t have the answers, but we’re hoping Coogler is able to capture the beauty of South Korea while directing part of the film over there.
