To film the mysterious environments of Wakanda, the filmmakers didn’t need to leave the state of Georgia. The Wakanda Forest from the end of Avengers: Infinity War was shot in the lovely Tallulah Gorge State Park, part of the larger Chattahoochee National Forest covering part of Georgia and into Tennessee. Come see how this location was found!
LOCATION: Wakanda Forest (Hurricane Falls, Tallulah Gorge State Park, GA)
SHOW: Avengers Infinity War (2018)
Half of the end battle in Infinity War takes place in a forested area, near Wakanda’s Great Mound. Bruce Banner, in Tony’s Hulkbuster armor, battles Cull Obsidian. Corvus Glaive struggles to get the Mind Stone from the Vision. And eventually, Thanos shows up to render judgment on everyone!
I had no idea where to start looking for this. Part of me thought it was shot on the backlot of the Pinewood Atlanta Studios, where a number of other grassy and wooded sequences have been shot. But the presence of the waterfall made that seem implausible. So I started checking the credits for potential clues. Often there are filming locations listed as part of the special thanks, and wouldn’t you know, this film listed a primary candidate: Tallulah Gorge State Park.
Checking on Google Maps I saw that there were a few waterfalls listed, so i started examining the photos that visitors had taken of the various falls, and found that Hurricane Falls was the actual filming location. This makes perfect sense, since the access road and visitors center is right next to the falls, it makes for easy access for the crew with all their equipment.
