While a lot of the early reactions to Captain America: Civil War praised the new depiction of Spider-Man, that doesn’t mean Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) isn’t every bit as entertaining as the web slinger. Marvel should have no problem getting unfamiliar audiences invested in this character.
Below, Marvel studio president Kevin Feige tells us a bit about the upcoming Black Panther standalone film, which is being helmed by Ryan Coogler, and explains why it doesn’t necessarily have to be the Black Panther origin story.

The newest superhero in Captain America: Civil War is Black Panther, played by 42 and Get On Up star Chadwick Boseman. The comic book character is getting his own movie later on Marvel’s future slate, but his introduction happens in this sequel as a sort of middle ground between Captain America and Iron Man, even though he ultimately sides with the latter in this conflict.
However, Boseman isn’t exactly a superhero when we meet him in this movie, even though he’s a Black Panther, a title that has been passed down through his ancestors. Boseman is the leader of Wakanda, a politician and monarch, and with his own country’s safety potentially at risk from the kind of destruction we saw in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, it’s easy to see why he’s drawn into this conflict.
In our interview with Chadwick Boseman from the set of Civil War, we talk about his role in this epic conflict, his Wakandan accent, and just how miserable and hot he is when he has to put on the Black Panther suit, which his fellow cast members agree is just the worst. Find out all of that and more in out Captain America Civil War interview with Chadwick Boseman. Read More »
