Our first official look at Black Panther showcases Wakanda’s hero clinging to the roof of a car in the midst of a high-speed chase.
Black Panther, which has been filming since January, is nearly done with the South Korean leg of its shoot that started in the middle of this month. To show for their work, Marvel Studios has released an image of T’Challa in Busan making sure that whomever he’s chasing isn’t going to get away. You can see it over at THR.
Captain America: Civil War already showed us that the Black Panther can keep up with moving cars on foot, so it’s likely that whomever he’s after is either literally in his grasp or not too far ahead. Other South Korean locations that director Ryan Coogler is specifically using in his film include Busan’s Gwangandaegyo Bridge, the city of Sajik-Dong, and Marine City’s Jagalchi Market. When asked about his decision to film in Busan, Coogler replied:
“Busan is a place full of energy, where modern architecture and traditional buildings create great harmony against the backdrop of a beautiful beach.”
Black Panther strikes on February 16, 2018. The movie will feature a cast that includes Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa (Black Panther), Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, John Kani as T’Chaka, Sterling K. Brown as N’Jobu, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Kilmonger, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, and Winston Duke as M’Baku (Man-Ape). In addition, Letitia Wright, Phylicia Rashad, and Atandwa Kani are also cast in unspecified roles.
