Marvel Studios are returning to a shooting location previously used in Avengers: Age of Ultron in one of their upcoming films currently in production.
“Marvel Studios has decided to film the movie in Atlanta and South Korea, the local branch of The Walt Disney Company Korea said,” the report states.
Joss Whedon’s last Avengers film was partially recorded in Seoul ahead of its 2015 release.
The report states the country’s culture ministry and local government coordinated support for the crew during filming, anticipating that similar help will be required for Black Panther.
Chadwick Boseman stars in the film alongside a litany of superstars including Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, Forest Whitaker, and Angela Bassett.
The Age of Ultron scenes filmed in Seoul depict the Avengers attempting to retrieve the Vision’s body from a moving truck after Ultron steals vibranium. Whether this scene will have anything to do with the Black Panther film is unclear at this point.
The report does not state which of the stars will report for filming in Seoul, and with plot details barely beginning to trickle out, all fans can do is speculate.
Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the events of Captain America: Civil War, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
