The stars of Black Panther kicked off the movie’s international tour this week in South Korea, where key action scenes were shot, and spoke at length on Marvel’s most diverse franchise.
“My own personal culture and heritage is something I’ve always appreciated since I was very young and I’ve always loved superhero comic books and movies. So it’s a blessing to be able to merge these two ideas into one project. It was really surreal to be a part of this process,” director Ryan Coogler told media present at the press conference.
Chadwick Boseman, who plays the lead role of the dashing and intelligent superhero namely T’Challa, the young ruler of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, also expressed his excitement of being part of the franchise and described the film as a “revolutionary” superhero film.
The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay. Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” hits theaters on February 16, 2018.
