The first appearance of Black Panther was in 2016 when we saw him in Captain America: Civil War. In 2018, T’Challa finally got his own movie, Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman. Boseman made T’Challa so popular that people couldn’t wait to see the sequel. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2020. However, Marvel Studios decided not to recast the role. Instead, they decided to push forward and honour Chadwick Boseman.
That means that Marvel Studios had to rework the movie without the leading character from the original Black Panther.
The movie was directed by Ryan Coogler, who is also a co-writer of the screenplay along with Joe Robert Cole.
The majority of the cast has returned so, once again, on the big screen we’re going to be watching Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross and Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi.
Based on Black Panther: Filming Locations, the movie is definitely going to be interesting so let’s check out all the places it’s going to take us!

Of course, it’s not all about the shrimps, there’s crab and oysters too.
Still, the most popular dish is the Brunswick stew. There has been some discussion about whether the stew originates from Brunswick, Georgia or Brunswick County, Virginia so, naturally, they settled it by organising “Stew Wars”.

Ernest A. Johnson Tunnel was built in 1956. It is relatively small and covered in tiles. What’s so interesting about that, you wonder? You might think it’s a tunnel just like any other, but then again, what’s so special about it that it served as a filming location for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever? Well, this tunnel is used for New England Summer Nationals, the largest automotive event on the East Coast. It is usually held on July 4th and it has several events including drag racing, controlled burnouts and stunt motorcycle riding. The Johnson Tunnel is especially popular for doing burnouts which draw both smoke and cheers from the crowd. However, the film crew didn’t use it for car burnouts, but they did use it to shoot a pivotal chase scene. We’re guessing adrenalin’s going to be popping out of the big screen!
