‘Black Panther’ script almost done, director news coming

While Avengers: Age of Ultron heads to theaters, Kevin Feige gave fans a brief update on several of the future Marvel films, Black Panther in this case.

Avengers-Age-of-Ultron-trailer-Klaw Andy SerkisSpeaking with Slash Film, Feige hints at upcoming news, with a script that is nearly complete.

Black Panther same thing.(As the Thor 3 update) I have some director meetings set in the next few weeks once [Avengers: Age of Ultron] gets out the door. And casting is already underway in many ways. Some of which you know about, some of which you don’t.”

Fans know that Get On Up, 42 star Chadwick Boseman will star in the film with Andy Serkis rumored to be returning as Klaw. In fact, EW detail Serkis’ appearance in Age of Ultron and how that sets up Panther.

Wakanda is a technologically advance country because it is one of the few places on Earth to find Vibranium, the powerful metal used to make Captain America’s shield. As you can imagine, a mechanical monstrosity like Ultron would love a body made out of this substance. That leads him to cross paths with a character known as Black Panther’s most insidious foe, Ulysses Klaue (played by Andy Serkis), who in Age of Ultron is an arms smuggler who has his hands on some of that precious Vibranium. And about those hands …

Fans of the comics know Klaue (later Klaw) is an amputee who attaches a sonic emitter to one wrist as a prosthetic. This weapon allows him to craft objects out of mere sound. We don’t see that device in Age of Ultron, but it’s good to go in expecting a partial origin story for Klaue. Let’s just say he waves bye-bye to one hand with the only one he’s got left, but we won’t say how it happens.
