Joe and Anthony Russo’s appearance at Wizard World New Orleans over the weekend yielded a few updates about the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War,” the third solo Cap film that stars almost a dozen of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s heavy hitters. As reported by ComicBook.com, directors Joe and Anthony Russo discussed Black Panther, saying that he has a “very important part in the story” and an “amazing arc.” Anthony Russo added, “Whether or not Wakanda is involved in it remains on the table.”
Co-director Joe Russo then chimed in, dissecting his brother’s cryptic answer. “If you’re going to see Wakanda, we go, ‘Listen, we can’t tell you whether or not you’re going to see Wakanda,'” said Joe. “You’re probably going to see Wakanda.”
That’s not the only thing the brothers teased over the weekend — and this one comes with a spoiler alert just to be safe. During a panel, the assembled “Civil War” actors were asked which scene they would like to film that they hadn’t had a chance to film yet. Frank Grillo, who plays Crossbones, joked that he’d “like to kill Captain America.” Director Joe Russo chimed in and teased, “We may or may not have filmed that scene, though. She asked about a scene you haven’t done.” Joe is referring to a rumored scene that was reported on in late December.
“Captain America: Civil War” opens on May 6.
