Marvel’s Black Panther was shot in Atlanta, which has become one of largest HOT spots for film production.  Production areas included Midtown, Piedmont Park, Castleberry Hill, Mechanicsville, West End, Vine City, Decatur, Alpharetta, Marietta, and Cartersville. A significant portion of the production’s investment supported a wide array of in-state vendors, including numerous small businesses, such as:

  • More than $29.9 million spent on local rentals and purchases for set decoration, production, and other supplies.
