Marvel Studios Returns To South Korea For ‘Black Panther’ | Film News
Filming for upcoming Marvel movie, Black Panther, will bring the Marvel Cinematic Universe back to South Korea. A huge car chase scene will be taking place in Busan, a port city in South Korea.
Earlier today, Variety.com had revealed details of the scene, shared by local production service company Mr. Romance Film. The film is sure to deliver thrill, with around 150 cars, over 700 people, helicopters and guns reported to be involved in the car chase scene alone.
This is Marvel’s second time filming a movie in South Korea, the first being for The Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). The sequel to the hit superhero film, The Avengers (2012), filmed several scenes in Seoul and also featured Korean actress, Claudia Kim, as a supporting actress.
The choice in set made headlines in 2015 when it was revealed that the South Korean government shouldered almost £2.5m of production costs to make sure that the Korean backdrops used would look good.
Black Panther will see the return of Wakandan king, T’Challa, after his debut in Captain America: Civil War (2016). Chadwick Boseman headlines as lead role, T’Challa (the Black Panther), and the cast list will also feature Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong-o, Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis.
Production began just last week and filming will reportedly be taking place in Atlanta as well. Black Panther is expected to hit theatres February 2018.
