Marvel fans have many reasons to cheer as the much-anticipated movie of the company Black Panther has finally gone on floor. What is more, there is also a good deal of details coming out regarding the cast and the story of the movie that promises many interesting characters.
Director Ryan Coogler has officially started the production of Black Panther, reports Uproxx. Marvel Studios has said that the film will be shot in South Korea as well as in Pinewood Studios, Atlanta. The entertainment company announced in a press release that the movie follows T'Challa who returns to his deserted but technically advanced African nation of Wakanda after the events of Captain America: Civil War to take his place as king.
However, his mettle is tested when an old enemy resurfaces, causing him to be drawn into a conflict that threatens to put the entire future of Wakanda as well as the world at risk. As for the cast, the movie is bursting with stars. It carries names like Martin Freeman, Michael B. Jordan, Chadwick Boseman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett and many more. These stars have been associated with some brilliant projects and thus, one can expect fireworks from Black Panther.
However, the most exciting part is the return of Andy Serkis as villain Ulysses Klaw. His inclusion has only raised the hopes of the audience and Coogler must be given credit for it. Speaking of Coogler, his below-the-line crew also known as "creative brain trust" has numerous names who have collaborated with him in the past, claims Collider.
There is director of photography Rachel Morrison, editors Claudia Castello and Michael P. Shawver, production designer Hannah Beachler, visual effects supervisor Geoffrey Baumann of Doctor Strange fame, special effects supervisor Dan Sudick from Civil War and more. So, it is pretty clear that the team is a mix of talent and experience.
Also, given the fact that the movie is part of Marvel Comic Universe's third phase, it is expected to have new and more diverse heroes. As fans may recall, Marvel Studio has affirmed that it is committed to introducing fresh and diverse heroes to the audiences over the course of the nine films that belong to this phase. Black Panther hits the theatres on February 16, 2018.
