‘Captain America: Civil War’: Black Panther’s Role in the Movie Revealed

In an official event and grand celebration, the entire cast of “Captain America: Civil War” was revealed. Amongst the ones present were Chris Evans who’s playing the title role of Captain America, Robert Downey Jr. who’s playing his former “Avengers” ally turned foe Iron Man and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. One more actor who’s going to be part of the movie was introduced. Chadwick Boseman who will be playing the role of Black Panther aka T’Challa, the Prince and Future King of Wakanda was also introduced at the event, however his role was not really revealed.

According to Clevver Movies, Kevin Feige in an interview revealed that in “Captain America: Civil War” Boseman will be in the early stages of taking on the persona of Black Panther. It was since his father is getting old. For all those who are unaware, Black Panther is the protector of a fictional yet advanced African nation of Wakanda. This responsibility of becoming a Black Panther is passed down from generation to generation of Wakanda’s monarchs. The quite enclosed nation is known to be one of the most advanced nations and is best known for the origin of Vibranium. It is an indestructible metal that was used to make Captain America’s shield. The metal is one of the most sought after in the fictional world and was also pursued by Ultron who wanted to make good use of it in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

Since “Captain America: Civil War” will be based after the events of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” seeing the havoc the metal caused since it got out of Wakanda, T’Challa and his father will be thinking of going public. They also aim to become more and more involved with the rest of the world, however keeping the safety of Wakanda, a top priority. That is where the character will be introduced in the movie and story will progress.

Instead of introducing the Black Panther in his own solo movie and bringing him in “Captain America: Civil War,” Feige stated that they needed a kind of a person who would offer a neutral perspective and will not part with either of the sides in the upcoming battle. How the superhero and Wakandan monarch will be influencing the movie is yet to be seen. “Captain America: Civil War” will hit theaters on May 6, 2016.
