Reports: ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever‘ filming is undergoing the final stage at the island of Puerto Rico. Marvel studios previously planned to film the Disney+ show ‘The Falcon and The Winter Soldier‘ in Puerto Rico, due to sudden earthquakes occurring on the island during production they changed the location.
The Cosmic Circus shared exclusive set images and video from the base camp in Puerto Rico. also reported Marvel Studios was casting extras of different ethnicities to portray various roles during the shooting between March 18th-23rd. Local castings included Black children and adults, people with European features that could represent European Conquistadors and Friars, and people with Indigenous features that resembled people from Central America, Latin America, and the Caribbean. The descriptions provided for these extras, the setting, and the short filming timeframe suggest that Marvel could perhaps be filming a flashback sequence set during the Colonization of the Americas (the 1500s-1600s).
