Wauconda is a small town 40 miles north of Chicago.

In the movie, Wakanda is the mythical place that's home to Black Panther.

A local reporter had some fun with it.

He took a guy dressed up as the superhero, as well as his arch-nemesis, around town to talk to people and get their reactions.

Most people, including the mayor played along.

They did not however find any vibranium, the fictional metal in the story.

Wauconda, Illinois has another Hollywood connection.

Part of the 'Blues Brothers' movie was filmed there.
