Expect a "big geo-political action adventure" out of Black Panther

12.30.2015

BLACK PANTHER is going to be a pretty key piece of the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward... that is, if you believe the hype of importance Kevin Feige is laying out there for the superhero's introduction in Phase Three and beyond.

Speaking to Empire, Feige is rather blunt in letting you know how much this film will matter in the grand scheme of things.

This one is important. 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.

Now that all sounds well and good in getting people to pay attention to this character they might not know too much about at this point, but it's the connective tissue to the rest of Marvel's films and its position as the last film before the studio embarks on their two-part AVENGERS sequels that is sure to get fans, both casual and hardcore, to take notice.

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.

There's the Marvel model at work. You make sure every film has some piece of the larger puzzle that audiences cannot bear to miss, and you've got them for every movie you make. See... It's not rocket science, other studios. But you do need to have a solid plan to make it work. Please start taking notes and using them.

BLACK PANTHER roars into theaters on February 16, 2018.

I just hope that there will be an actual good standalone story that the film can establish itself on then throwing too many Easter eggs to set up for another Marvel film (ie Iron Man 2, Age of Ultron).

Cue the JoBlo racists

Who haven't seen the movie or even a script treatment, but will hate simply because the movie may focus on blacks. Hopefully 2016 will see less of these fucking trolls.

I hope these people are few and far between. I'm all for this movie and role to explode in Civil War.

Ahhhh, the SJW train rolls on with Paul Feige at the helm

"It's a big geo-political action adventure" Even though Black Panther's background is contrived of civil war in his homeland (which is black on black violence), Feige will turn this in to a modern, anti-Conservative rant with the antagonists as all white. Fuck Paul Feige .

Always this racist bullshit with you. Try not to be such a cheesy dick skin. I know it's hard for you, but try.

*Kevin Feige, not Paul Feige

Also, where in "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" do you get a "black good white bad" vibe?

Marvel has been so hit or miss that I don't know what to expect for this

Black Panther is not a character I'm familiar with outside the basics, but it'll be interesting to see how he differentiates from the other heroes. I'm confident his film will contain the last infinity stone (Soul Gem).

Thor 2 was a "piece of a larger puzzle" and that was a trainwreck of a movie

Everyone clings to Winter Soldier as the standard set by Marvel but they set the bar pretty low beforehand. I'm looking forward to Black Panther but a movie needs to stand alone before it can carry a larger story forward. At least, if you want it to work and be memorable.
