Chadwick Boseman teases appearance of previous Black Panther's in solo film

Chadwick Boseman Black Panther

With CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR finally being released on Blu-ray/DVD this week, audiences will get to experience the latest Marvel epic once again (or for the first time) and be re-introduced to the large ensemble cast, including Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther. Production on the film will get underway in January and Boseman spoke with Yahoo Movies about what we might expect from the upcoming standalone film, including teasing possible appearances by previous heroes who have taken on the mantle of Black Panther.

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.

Multiple people have held the title of Black Panther throughout history and typically that role has gone to the King of Wakanda or some member of the Wakandan ruling family. Who knows how the Marvel Cinematic Universe will tackle this element but Boseman's tease that previous Black Panther's may have some part to play is quite interesting.

Some have pointed to Chadwick Boseman's appearance in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR as T'Challa's origin story, but the actor feels that CIVIL WAR was merely a "jumping off point for Black Panther" and that there's a lot more mystery to reveal about the character. I'm not quite as up on my Black Panther lore as others may be, but I'm quite looking forward to discovering more about the character and Wakanda itself in Ryan Coogler's upcoming film once it hits theaters on February 16, 2018.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I've ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response was there anything that could even be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul!

Most people's most anticipated is Dr Strange, and no doubt that will be great, but this is mine. Coogler with Boseman and such an amazing character. I'm there day one. To see Wakanda, and Panther fighting in Africa will be something beautiful in my mind. I'm not going to even trumpet the whole pc diversity angle, because its ultimately meaningless. The only thing that has meaning is the story and the character. Coogler is a fucking genius behind the camera, and Black Panther's story is a rich
