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.”
