Marvel Studios has featured the Chocolate Hills as part of its promotions of Ant-Man and the Wasp, the studio’s first superheroine movie after a string of superhero blockbusters in the past decade and released right after its record-shattering Avengers: Infinity War.
Ant-man and the Wasp which premiered in the Philippines early in July posted on its official Facebook page for the country a photo of the Chocolate Hills with one of its size-shifting protagonists, the Ant-Man, clearly hiding behind one of the world-renowned hills in Carmen, Bohol.
The promotional photo was liked by 26,000 Facebook users and shared over 614 times as of this posting.
No actual scenes from Bohol were depicted in the movie but it appeared to be the only Philippine destination featured by the blockbuster-making studio for Ant-Man and the Wasp.
However, it was not first time that Marvel included a Philippine tourist destination in its production or promotion.
In Avengers: Infinity War, one of the highest-grossing films of all time, Banaue Rice Terraces was featured in the movie’s closing scene.
The movie also starred half-Filipino Dave Bautista, who played Drax.
