We’ve known for well over a year now that Captain America: Civil War would feature the Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of Black Panther and that he would be played by Chadwick Boseman. However, we have only been able to speculate on how this character, a prince from the fictional African nation of Wakanda who has inherited the powers and abilities of his royal family, fits into the quickly escalating beef between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark.

Now, the details have been revealed! It turns out that Black Panther, a.k.a. T’Challa, is a neutral party with his own interests… and that his allegiance may shift between Team Iron Man and Team Captain America, depending on who will best help him achieve his goals.
