The Black Panther Story Thickens – Marvel Interested In Cape Town Shoot For Next Avengers

black pantherAnant Singh, the chairman of Cape Town’s film studios, was featured in a bulletin on the Cape Town radio station 5FM yesterday. His big reveal was that Marvel Studios have been in touch and are interested in filming some of the next Avengers film in the area.

It wasn’t entirely clear if this meant in the Cape Town studio facilities or on location, but I’d be very surprised if it isn’t the latter. Why go to Cape Town when you have a deal in place to use UK studio spaces?

We have been expecting Black Panther to be involved – it certainly looks like casting is underway – and Singh’s comments would seem to translate into yet more evidence.

T’Challa, the Black Panther, comes from the nation of Wakanda but, well, there’s no real Wakanda to go film in, for one thing, and what’s more, South Africa has regularly been part of his stories.

At this point, I’d be more surprised if the character isn’t featured. This will make three new superpowered characters for the film – Black Panther, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch – with who knows how many more to follow. I wonder how big their roles will be?

And I wonder if any of them, particularly T’Challa, will get their own standalone movies afterwards.
