Look at Black Panther Clinging to a Car in a New Photo of that South Korea Chase Scene
Pretty much the the two things we definitely, absolutely know about Black Panther is that Black Panther will be in it, and it’ll feature a pretty grand-scale car chase scene in the middle of Busan, South Korea. They’ve been filming the car chase for the past week, which is why we’ve been hearing so much about it, and today Korea’s branch of the Walt Disney Company has released a first look image of the scene.
Can you spot the Panther in the photo?
No? Look closer. Nope, closer. Ah yes, there he is, clinging Alien: Covenant-style to the hood of that sports car.
There are a few questions that spring up right off the bat here: 1. Who is Black Panther chasing? 2. Is someone chasing Black Panther? 3. Why can’t Black Panther just… ride in a car? 4. Why did he choose today of all days to try to perfect his Frog Pose?
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen T’Challa use cars in the way they were not meant to be used. That big chase scene in Captain America: Civil War saw him leaping from SUV to SUV as if they were stones upon a stream and not metal boxes moving at 60 miles per hour. I sure hope he catches whoever he’s after soon, or he might transform into his final form: a roof rack.
Black Panther follows T’Challa, who, after the events of Captain America: Civil War, returns home to the isolated, technologically-advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
