Black Panther In London: Science Museum Will Exhibit A Reconstructed Film Set Of Marvel's Blockbuster
Fans of Marvel’s Black Panther film now have another reason to visit London. Marvel Studios is teaming up with the Science Museum to exhibit a gallery based on one of the main characters of the blockbuster film: Shuri. The princess of Wakanda, Shuri is the daughter of T’Chaka and Ramonda and the sister of T’Challa, the title character superhero played by the late great Chadwick Boseman.
Played by actress Letitia Wright, Shuri is an exceptional scientist. She is the leader of the science division of Wakanda and has expertise in fields such as engineering, physics, chemistry, medicine, and computer programming.
The exhibition opens on November 3, 2022. The Science Museum announced that it will showcase a reconstructed film set of Shuri’s lab from the movie. Visitors can re-enact the role technicians play in creating blockbuster movies by using visual effects technology to adjust lighting and match sound and dialogue to moving pictures. The public will be able to experience what it’s like to create visual effects on a blockbuster film set.
The museum will also showcase technicians’ hidden yet vital careers in the health, science, and renewable energy sectors. Through interviews and exhibits simulating real-life technical tasks, this immersive experience will give visitors a unique insight into these areas and how the people who work within them affect our everyday lives. Visitors will be able to analyze blood samples in a medical laboratory, operate a robot in a manufacturers workshop, fix a fault atop a wind turbine, and much more.
“We’ve collaborated with Marvel Studios, the NHS, National Grid and the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre so you can try one-of-a-kind interactive exhibits which mimic the tasks technicians perform every day,” the Science Museum said in an official statement.
