Black Panther & F.Gary Gray

 

Marvel are looking for a director to their first African-American superhero movie, Black Panther. Meaning no white directors are in talks, but F.Gary Gray and Ava DuVernay are on the shortlist. For F.Gary Gray this isn’t the first time being in talks to direct a Marvel a movie, as he was considered to direct Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but dropped out and made Straight Outta Compton, which turned out to be a win for all parties. Now he is once again in a pickle, being nominated for Furious 8. While some say it to be a tough choice, we all know what the right decision is in this case.

Black Panther the movie is set for July 2018 release. Black Panther himself (Chadwick Boseman) will appear for the first time in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War.

Kevin Feige has revealed details of the role Black Panther will play in Captain America: Civil War.

Chadwick Boseman‘s T’Challa will feature opposite Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) and Captain America (Chris Evans) to offer a “very different point of view” to the movie’s events. If the movie will follow the comic books outline, we’re going to see Tony Stark and Steve Rogers go to war over different points of view on the roles of superheroes in America.

“It is a role that he is still in the beginning phases of taking on,” Feige told Birth Movies Death. “It’s a mantle he is only beginning to take on because his father is older.”

“The reason we introduced him in Captain America: Civil War is because we needed a third party,” said Feige. “We needed fresh eyes who wasn’t embedded with the Avengers and who has a very different point of view than either Tony or Steve.”

“We said, ‘We need somebody like Black Panther… why don’t we just use Black Panther?’ That’s how it went in the development process.”

In another interview, with io9, Feige denied reports of Hulk appearing in the film, saying that “[Hulk] is not a primary part of Civil War. He may not be a part at all.”
