According to Variety, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige verified that production began on Tuesday at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta.
“It’s clearly very emotional without Chad,” said Feige as he addressed the comeback of the original cast, “But everyone is also very excited to bring the world of Wakanda back to the public and back to the fans. We’re going to do it in a way that would make Chad proud.”
