In terms of new character debuts in pre-established movies, they didn’t come much smoother than when Chadwick Boseman took to the screen in Captain America: Civil War. Between Boseman as Black Panther and Tom Holland as Spider-Man they quite nearly upstaged with the two main characters, including the titular hero of the piece. So now that we know that Black Panther is ready for his own solo debut, the question must be asked, which characters will support this new hero in his self-titled adventure? And just like that, the internet answers with what looks like a leaked casting sheet for the main parts needing recruitment in the upcoming Black Panther. (more…)
Word is making the Internet rounds that Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years A Slave) is in talks to join director Ryan Coogler‘s (Creed) Black Panther movie. Marvel introduced T’Challa played by Chadwick Boseman (42, Get On Up), as the Black Panther in the hugely successful Russo brothers movie Captain America: Civil War. (more…)
Given his recent success with Creed, and creating a brand new story out of a long-running franchise, Ryan Coogler would be a very good choice to lead Marvel Studios‘ upcoming adaptation of Black Panther. That’s been the rumor the last couple of weeks anyway that Coogler was being courted by the studio to take the helm of the movie based on the African superhero, the only real name to be mentioned as director since last year when Selma director Ava DuVernay passed on the project. Today though, it’s more than rumor. Marvel Studios has confirmed that when Black Panther takes to the big screen in 2018, it will be Coogler behind the camera. (more…)
Everyone on the edge of your seats, now! Marvel‘s making a decision about a new upcoming movie! Eight years and twelve critical and commercial hits later, will they make a good creative decision for the film? Well, look at that! It appears as though, once again, Marvel has made a great decision for one of their properties. After months and months of rumors, Ryan Coogler has finally been confirmed as the director of Black Panther. Coogler is not only a great decision; he’s clearly the very best decision for this film.
Mustachioed crusader Stan Lee and legendary penciler Jack Kirby created Black Panther (real name: T’Challa) back in 1966. His first appearance was Fantastic Four #52 and he has the distinction of being one of the first black superhero in comics. The Black Panther paved that rocky road for the likes of Luke Cage, Misty Knight, War Machine, John Stewart Green Lantern, among a few others.
The Black Panther will make his cinematic debut in Captain America: Civil War. You can catch a glimpse of him in the recently released Civil War trailer; seeing him drop kick The Winter Soldier. Now thanks to a spread in today’s EW an even better look of the character, and his fierce looking costume, can be examined in full; along with a whole lot of details from actor Chadwick Boseman, Co-director Anthony Russo and producer Nate Moore.

There are enough characters in Captain America: Civil War that it might as well be Avengers 3.0. Except it’s not the Avengers. The team is divided and at war with each other. It’s Tony Stark vs Captain America. They, and their respective teams, are odds with each other over government control of enhanced humans. It’ll be pandemonium.
In additional some familiar faces – like Back Widow, Falcon, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Vision, Scarlett Witch, and The Winter Soldier – Captain America: Civil War will also see a new but classic Marvel super hero, in that of The Black Panther. Now, after months of filming, new set photos have surfaced giving us our very first look at, who can be described as, the African Batman. (more…)
There are a ton of heroes in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie, more than you can shake a stick at. One of the biggest unknowns so far is how The Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) will fit in. This will be the introduction of the character before he moves on to his own stand alone film in 2018. Luckily for all of us, Marvel’s Cinematic Universe Guru Kevin Feige isn’t afraid to talk about how everything fits together. (more…)
Last fall’s big announcement by Marvel Studios not only revealed that Black Panther was amongst the next wave of heroes to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it also announced who was going to play T’Challa, the Black Panther, himself: Chadwick Boseman. Boseman will not only star in the standalone Panther movie, but his first on-screen appearance will be in Captain America: Civil War, which means that Boseman is going to be a very famous face once the summer of 2018 rolls around. So in casting the supporting roles, especially T’Challa’s father and Black Panther predecessor T’Chaka, they’re going to need someone equally famous. Like a Ghostbuster. Like Ernie Hudson. (more…)
Marvel has officially announced the casting of German actor Daniel Bruhl for an unspecified role in Captain America: Civil War. The actor – who is probably best known for his ambiguously endearing-but-nasty role as Frederick Zoller in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds – joins a cast that already boasts three superheroes. Captain America: Civil War has an impressive line-up, including Chris Evans’ Cap. America, Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man, newcomer Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther and Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier. Unfortunately there is still no word on Frank Grillo’s involvement in the film as Crossbones. (more…)
