Production for the upcoming Marvel film, "Black Panther," is in full swing.

 In the casting call posted by Marvel on December 11, the studio specified that they were looking for children who live in Metro Atlanta to participate in the Marvel film. The kids who will be chosen will shoot a scene for the movie on February 6 next year.

While the casting call did not offer any clue about the plot of the highly anticipated film, it did require the children who are going to apply as extras to be in uniform. Those who are interested to join may apply on the ProjectCasting website.

There are speculations that Moon Knight, who also has African origins, will appear alongside Black Panther in the feature film. On the other hand, some Reddit users believe that the plot of the upcoming film will explore the land of Wakanda and might not bring up Moon Knight's storyline.

Production for the movie kicked off two years ago. The film centers on T'Challa a.k.a. Black Panther, who was first introduced in the most recent Marvel movie, "Captain America: Civil War," which was also filmed in Atlanta, Georgia.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther is "the new ruler of the advanced kingdom of Wakanda and must defend his land from being torn apart by enemies from outside and inside his country." The movie will star Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o.

Directed by Ryan Cooler, "Black Panther" hits theaters on February 17, 2018.
