‘Black Panther’ film to deliver ‘geopolitical action’ with ties to future ‘Avengers Infinity War’ films

Marvel will be officially adding Black Panther to their Cinematic Universe with an appearance in next year’s Captain America: Civil War and Marvel head Kevin Feige spoke about the Black Panther film during an interview with Empire.

black-panther-concept-art“This one is important,” Feige says of Black Panther. “Not only do you get an unbelievable lead character, but you also get all of Wakanda which is a whole new setting and culture to explore.”

Black Panther will have a “primarily African-American cast” headlined by Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa.

And in the same way that Ant-Man was a heist film, or Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a political thriller, Black Panther will have its own distinct feel. “It’s a big geopolitical action adventure that focuses on the family and royal struggle of T’Challa in Wakanda, and what it means to be a king,” Feige explained.

Executive producer Nate Moore has teased a younger, “more fiery” version of the character in Civil War, as compared to the comics, but we’ll have to wait and see if and how he’ll have evolved by the time we get to Black Panther.

“T’Challa’s story is very important to us as it links to the next Avengers films, which is why we brought it forward,” Feige teased.

Black Panther will be the last MCU movie released before Avengers: Infinity War, arriving in theaters on February 16, 2018.

Creed director Ryan Coogler is reportedly in talks to direct, though Marvel hasn’t confirmed anything yet. Andy Serkis is expected to co-star as villain Ulysses Klaue.
