Kevin Feige Says BLACK PANTHER Will Be a "Big Geopolitical Action Adventure" Film
Black Panther will be introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year with the released of Captain America: Civil War. After that, the character will get his very own film, which will play an important role in leading us into Avengers: Infinity War.
During an interview with Empire, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige talked about what we can expect from the standalone film.
"This one is important. Not only do you get an unbelievable lead character, but you also get all of Wakanda which is a whole new setting and culture to explore.”
Feige went on to say that Black Panther will have a "primarily African-American cast" and that it will play an important part in moving the story forward into Infinity War. When talking about the theme of the story he explained:
"It's a big geo-political action adventure that focuses on the family and royal struggle of T'Challa in Wakanda, and what is means to be a king. T'Challa's story is very important to us as it links to the next Avengers films, which is why we brought it forward."
A few weeks ago it was reported that Creed director Ryan Coogler was in talks to direct the film, which would be fantastic. The guy is a very talented filmmaker, and I think he could deliver a helluva great Black Panther movie.
So far, the movie stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa and maybe Ernie Hudson as T’Chaka. The movie is set to be released on February 16th, 2018.
