Amazing ‘Black Panther’ Filming Locations From Around The World
Comic book fans have quickly touted Marvel’s highly anticipated flick Black Panther as one of the greatest superhero films ever since its release earlier this year. The film broke box office records left, right, and centre. If you can’t get enough of Wakanda and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, treat yourself to a tour of these real-life Black Panther filming locations.
The Gwangandaegyo (Diamond Bridge), South Korea
You’ll find Gwangandaegyo, better known as Diamond Bridge, in Busan, South Korea. The bridge stretches an incredible 7km in length and took eight years to construct.
You can catch Diamond Bridge in Black Panther’s elaborate and seemingly never-ending high-speed car chase scene through the city.
Busan is a beautiful South Korean port city, famous for its stunning beaches, incredible mountainous terrain, and ancient temples. It’s also considered a hotspot for fashion and features a slew of hip bars and cafes.
Iguazu Falls, Argentina
The falls feature as Warrior Falls in Black Panther. According to the comics, Warrior Falls is where the coronation of the King of Wakanda (ie, the Black Panther) takes place.
Jagalchi Market, South Korea
South Korea, back at it again. The Jagalchi Market in Busan is Korea’s largest seafood market. It’s world-famous, stocking everything from fresh fish and other seafood to takeaway food and clothing.
Busan’s Jagalchi Market is featured in Black Panther during the same car chase that was filmed on Diamond Bridge.
South Africa, Zambia and Uganda
Although the fictional land of Wakanda is said to be in Africa, very few Black Panther filming locations can be found on the continent.
However, many of the aerial shots are in fact a combination of shots taken in South Africa, Zambia and Uganda. You can see these compiled shots in the trailer when Black Panther’s aircraft enters his homeland, Wakanda.
