Marvel's Black Panther to film stunts in Busan
Marvel will reportedly film key stunts for Black Panther in South Korea’s port city of Busan.
While the movie will use the US state of Georgia as a base, South Korea was announced as a key filming location for the movie earlier this week.
“The shoot, which will involve some 150 cars and more than 700 people, is a car chase scene with the protagonist and the villain,” said Mr. Romance Film, the local production service company that will work with Marvel, in comments to Variety.
“It will also involve helicopter(s) and guns (firing blanks), and may cause noise as well as traffic restrictions.”
Mr. Romance Film previously worked with Marvel on Avengers: Age of Ultron, and was also involved with the Wachowski siblings’ US sci-fi drama series Sense8.
Marvel has been reaching further around the world in recent years as it expands its global location filming ambitions. Avengers: Age of Ultron also filmed scenes in Italy, while Captain America: Civil War shot key stunt work in Germany and Thor: Ragnarok used Queensland, Australia, as a base.
Filming around the world enables the studio to offer exotic visuals, while also helping grow Marvel’s international fan base.
