Marvel’s Black Panther is currently in production in Atlanta, Georgia. Filming began recently and now one of its stars, Lupita Nyong’o, has shared a photo from the set.
The photo doesn’t offer much. Nyong’o, who plays Dora Milaje member Nakia in the film, is pretty covered up, likely in an effort to prevent any paparazzi photos of her costume. She appears to be surrounded by a giant blue screen background, with Black Panther’s (Chadwick Boseman) home nation of Wakanda probably being filled in later via visual effects.

Even so, it’s exciting to know that cameras are rolling on Black Panther and Lupita Nyong’o is in front of them.
Black Panther is due in theaters February 16, 2018.
