January 27, 2017

SEOUL, Jan. 27 (Yonhap) — A movie based on a popular U.S. comic book superhero, “Black Panther,” is expected to be partially filmed in South Korea, its studio and distributor said Friday.

Marvel Studios has decided to film the movie in Atlanta and South Korea, the local branch of The Walt Disney Company Korea said.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, key cast members of the new movie include Chadwick Boseman, Forest Whitaker, and Lupita Nyong’o.

The studio previously filmed parts of “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which was released in 2015, in Seoul.

At that time the Seoul metropolitan government, culture ministry, and other related governmental bodies provided the team with necessary support.
