Where was Black Panther and Wakanda filmed?

It's time for Africa in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The solo movie of Black Panther, after his debut in Captain America: Civil War, follows T’Challa coming back home to claim the throne of the high-tech kingdom of Wakanda. However, an old adversary will challenge his reign.

The cast stars Chadwick Boseman (Get on Up), Michael B. Jordan (The Wire, Creed), Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave, The last Jedi), Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead's Michonne) and The Hobbit Martin Freeman.

The film is set in Africa, but as far as we know, nothing was shot there; Black Panther was filmed in Atlanta, South Korea and Argentina. These are the spoiler-free filming locations for the new Marvel installment:
