Chadwick Boseman may not be the only Black Panther in his upcoming solo adventure.
“If you saw the tease at the end [of ‘Civil War’] in Wakanda, that’s more mystery there so I think there’s a lot to reveal about the character,” Boseman told Yahoo Movies. “There is definitely more of his origin in ‘Black Panther’. You’re going to learn about Wakanda, its culture, its traditions, the past. You can go through all the comic books and know that there’s more Panthers that have existed in the past – that’s origin.”
Though viewers were first introduced to Black Panther in “Captain America: Civil War,” don’t call it the Wakandan King’s origin story. The film leaves many strands for the 2018 solo film to pick up, including T’Challa’s ascension to King of Wakanda and his decision to harbor The Winter Soldier in his country.
“’Civil War’ was a jumping off point for the Black Panther character,” Boseman said, “It’s not necessarily an origin story because he remains a mystery through most of the movie. When I take the mask off and it’s revealed that it’s the Prince of Wakanda, that’s the guy who’s father was just killed – it’s a surprise.”
“Black Panther” also stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, and Danai Gurira, and will be directed by “Creed” and “Fruitville Station’s” Ryan Coogler. It hits theaters on February 16, 2018.
