BLACK PANTHER: Wakanda Was Nearly Introduced Much Sooner In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

BLACK PANTHER: Wakanda Was Nearly Introduced Much Sooner In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

We got our first glimpse of Wakanda in Captain America: Civil War and will visit the African nation for the first time in Black Panther. However, its debut nearly happened much, much sooner!

Wakanda will make its official Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Black Panther next month but producer Nate Moore reveals that there were talks of bringing the fictional country to the big screen long before that. Remember that its existence was first hinted at in Iron Man 2 and Avengers: Age of Ultron would have been a good place for it to appear given the appearance of Klaw and Vibranium. 

While he doesn't specify where Wakanda could have come into play, Moore did shed some light on why Marvel decided to hold off on introducing the home of T'Challa and his family until this year.

 
"We talked about it. And the truth was, there was so much to bite off that we didn’t want to waste it. We could have gone there a couple of times before. There were iterations of other scripts where we did go to Wakanda. But we didn’t want to tease it without a full idea of what it was going to be. We didn’t want to start locking into ideas without having a story or a filmmaker who had a full understanding of what the country was. All of those ideas fell to the wayside until we could spend a full movie on it."

We'll obviously get to revisit Wakanda in Avengers: Infinity War when Thanos' Black Order attacks (seemingly on the hunt for the Soul Stone) but it will be Black Panther which really delves deep into the nation. Are you disappointed we had to wait this long to see the comic book country on the big screen?
