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 »

Next year’s Captain America: Civil War finally brings Black Panther into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and by the looks of it he’s going to be a force to be reckoned with. That’s him getting a sunlit hero shot, kicking the crap out of Cap’s beloved Bucky, and outrunning Cap himself — this guy is no slouch. But he’s not getting his own movie until 2018, which means we’ve got many, many months of speculation ahead of us.
For starters, we’re dying to know exactly what this movie is. What genre is it? What’s it about? Who’s in it? Marvel being Marvel, they’re not giving away too many plot details this early in the game. But studio head Kevin Feige‘s latest comments do give us a better sense of the film’s overall feel, and teases its connection to Avengers: Infinity War. Read More »
