Marvel’s “Black Panther” will be introduced next year in “Captain America: Civil War” before his title film comes out in 2017.
“In terms of Black Panther, it’s absolutely in development, and when you have something as rich as Wakanda and [Black Panther’s] backstory – and clearly, Vibranium’s (the powerful metal that Captain America’s shield is made from) been introduced in the universe already,” Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige told BlackTree TV (via Screen Rant ) in 2013.
During a press conference for “Thor: The Dark World” last year, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige officially announced T’Challa’s arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Before “Black Panther” releases in 2017, Marvel will introduce Wakanda’s first son in “Captain America: Civil War,” where the character will play a pivotal role by resolving the brewing conflict between Captain America and Iron Man.
The plot summary for “Civil War” appears below courtesy of Inquisitr .
“Following the events of Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity.
This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.” Actor Chadwick Boseman, who will play Black Panther in the movies, has expressed his excitement in the upcoming films.
“I’m excited about it too! I’m beyond excited,” Bosewick told Variety (transcribed by I Am Rogue ). “It’s like to the point where you feel numb and then your mind goes off into, ‘Okay, how do I achieve that?’ But I think the great thing about it is that this actual character is unique in a lot of ways.” “I can’t think of another character that’s like the leader of a nation and is a superhero at the same time,” he added.
“There are a lot of different ways this story can go, you know, and ways that they can do it, so I’m really just excited about how it fits into the bigger picture of what Marvel is doing.” “Captain America: Civil War” arrives in theaters on May 6, 2016, followed by “Black Panther” on Nov.
