If you, like everyone else in the world are gripped by the superhero fever then chances are you are eagerly counting down days to the release of “Captain America: Civil War.” You have probably picked your side and are scrutinizing every trailer and teaser to gather hints about how the epic battle will end.
Naturally so, all eyes are set on Tony Stark and Steve Rogers but the recent trailer from the studio gave us more to think about with regards to the “first black superhero,” Chadwick Boseman’s character T’Challa a.k.a Black Panther. As noted by CinemaBlend, it isn’t until 2018 that Black Panther’s solo movie will be rolled out, but that wasn’t a factor when director Ryan Coogler stepped in to give his take on the portrayal of the superhero in “Civil Wars.”
Marvel Studios President and “Civil War” producer Kevin Feige in an interview with io9, shared:
“Ryan came in and watched the movie. We did a little bit of additional photography here and there and Ryan did a pass at a couple of those scenes. So there’s a line or two that Panther says in the movie that Ryan contributed to. [Civil War screenwriters] Chris [Markus] and Steve [McFeely] absorbed it into their draft, put their spin on it and words to it, but Ryan has started to be involved in earlier cuts of this movie.”
While the upcoming movie still belongs to the Russo brothers and the screenwriters, it will be interesting to witness Coogler’s contribution to Black Panther’s character since it will clearly set the tone for the superhero’s movie to be out in 2018.
When the latest trailer rolled out, Black Panther managed to grab headlines for being the one to damage Cap’s shield. And of course the clip doesn’t fail to give goosebumps, take a look:
“Captain America: Civil War” will be punching its way into theaters on May 6, 2016.
