In 2014, residents of Seoul, South Korea witnessed a massive car chase along the Han River as part of the filming of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now Marvel Studios is returning to South Korea to film another car chase, this time in the port city of Busan, for the 2018 film, Black Panther, following early reports last week.
The scene, which is expected to be filming soon, is expected to feature Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa and Michael B. Jordan’s Erik Killmonger and include some of Busan’s most well-known landmarks: Gwangalli Beach, the Jagalchi Fish Market andthe 24-mile long Gwangan Bridge.
According to reports, filming will focus on “a car chase scene with the protagonist and the villain. It will also involve helicopter(s) and guns (firing blanks) and may cause noise as well as traffic restrictions.” In total it is expected to feature “some 150 cars and more than 700 people.” It’s unknown if Busan will be a stand-in for a Wakandan setting or if Killmonger’s search for vengeance will take him to South Korea.
Black Panther is filming now will be in theaters February 16, 2018.
