Filmed in Atlanta, Black Panther generated more than $83.9 million to the local economy and contributed more than $26.5 million in wages to more than 3,100 workers across the state. In an interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Mayor Bottoms stated, “It’s just an extraordinary opportunity for the City of Atlanta to be here to celebrate this African-American cast that was filmed right here in Atlanta really speaks to what’s possible in this city and the opportunities we have in this city when we provide incentives and when we are a friendly and welcoming place.” T.I., a member Mayor Bottom’s transitional team offered a poignant statement about the impact of the film saying, “It’s imperative that we know there is greatness inside of all of us and our children should know that as well. They all possess super hero like qualities that will allow them to change the world. Films like Black Panther empower them.”
