Chadwick Boseman will portray T’Challa’s character who is ready to serve as the King of Wakanda after his father’s tragic death. But by doing so he must protect his throne as well as his people by becoming Black Panther.
There are rumors about Director Ryan Coogler being planning on concluding the storyline of Black Panther which might set the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
But thanks to Screen Rant who confirmed the news is slightly different. Marvel Studio revealed that Black Panther has nothing to do with the Avengers 3 despite the last remaining Infinity Stone which possibly resides in the Marvel film.
Producer Nate Moore said it will be Chadwick’s standalone movie. To meets the minimum requirements of MCU, it is necessary to introduce his backstory because in the Captain America: Civil War he was briefly introduced.
During Q&A session with Nate Moore, Screen Rant receives some of the unanswered questions:
SR: “Scott Derrickson talked a lot about the freedom that he had on Doctor Strange and getting to just tell a Doctor Strange story that happened to be in the MCU. Obviously, this is a little more linked to the MCU coming out of Civil War. How interlinked with the MCU is it and how much does that dictate what you’re able to do with the story?”
Moore: “I think it’s inherently linked because of the Civil War connections and because of the Ultron connections with Klaue. So there are strings that we are playing with. But again, much like Doctor Strange, we felt this had enough storytelling that it could stand alone beyond those things. We wanted to give Ryan the freedom to tell a story that wasn’t relying on other things that were happening in the MCU. Now that doesn’t mean what happens in the film won’t have ripples in the MCU but the film itself isn’t relying on other plot points in the MCU.”
Even though producer points out Black Panther will be a self-contained movie, from the Avengers: Infinity War first trailer, we saw how Wakanda nation plays the main portion of the Infinity War.
There is also a possibility that post credit scene of Black Panther may drive the Infinity War. Because in Marvel’s last MCU film, Thor: Ragnarok ends right where Thanos’s ship confronted Thor’s one. Hence after targeting Son of Odin, he may single out the Wakanda nation.
Black Panther will hit theaters on February 13 in the UK and February 16 in the US
