Black Panther – the first Marvel African American hero
The new Marvel hero is American actor Chadwick Boseman, who portrays iconic singer James Brown in ‘Get on Up’.
According to Deadline, Boseman is the protagonist in the upcoming motion picture entitled ‘Black Panther’ and the shootings start in March.
The actor was announced he will star in the movie during a high-class Marvel event from last winter.
Chadwick took the stage alongside co-stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr.
Also, Marvel CEO Kevin Fiege confirms Chadwick Boseman is the new African-American Marvel hero.
According to him, the motion-picture hits the cinemas in November 2017.
Black Panther, also known as T’Challa is the leader of the Wakanda tribe.
Wakanda is a super-advanced nation of the African people.
The fighting style from the Marvel productions such as Avengers or Captain America is inspired by classical martial arts like judo, karate, Tae Kwon does or aikido.
However, the Black Panther is the most refined artist of martial arts.
T’Challa has his own style inspired by capoeira – a combination between martial arts, acrobatics, dance moves, and music.
Chadwick’s panther costume is specially created to incorporate the panther look with the African influences.
Shootings for the first scenes start in the South-Korean city Busan.
The production team will spend two weeks there, to shot a major car-chase scene.
“The shoot will be a car chase scene between the protagonist and villain”
“It will involve some 150 cars and more than 700 people,” confessed an inside source.
Busan Metropolitan Government made the official announcement on Twitter.
