Kevin Feige Dubs BLACK PANTHER A “Big Geopolitical Action Adventure” Linked To INFINITY WAR

Hit the jump and check out what the head of Marvel Studios has to say about Black Panther long-awaited solo outing, and more specifically what the flick will be about, and whether or not we can expect a primarily black cast as well as any ties to Avengers: Infinity War.



We all know that next year’s Captain America: Civil War will finally bring the Black Panther to the big-screen and into the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe, but fans are still eager to know more about the future King of Wakanda’s 2018 standalone movie. And in the latest issue of Empire magazine, Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige offered some promising new details.

“This one is important,” said Feige of the Black Panther movie, which will be the last “Phase Three” movie before Marvel’s two-part Avengers: Infinity War event. “Not only do you get an unbelievable lead character, but you also get all of Wakanda which is a whole new setting and culture to explore.” And while Creed director Ryan Coogler is in line to direct, Kevin Feige assures Black Panther will have a “primarily African-American cast.” As for what the movie will be about, the Marvel producer says, “It's a big geo-political action adventure that focuses on the family and royal struggle of T'Challa in Wakanda, and what is means to be a king. T'Challa's story is very important to us as it links to the next Avengers films, which is why we brought it forward.”

Things sound very promising for the Black Panther movie, which so far stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa and potentially Ernie Hudson as T’Chaka with a February 16, 2018, release date. In light of the Black Panther movie being linked directly to the highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, that could be where the Soul Stone is introduced if not during the two-part event. What do you think?
