Explore Black Panther's origins in new featurette

Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) may have gotten his cinematic introduction in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, but the character has a rich history in the comics. Created by vets Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1966, Panther has been one of the most loved characters in all of the Marvel canon. His new solo movie hits theaters next month, and you can explore his background further in this new featurette. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, director Ryan Coogler, Boseman and Lee are all on hand to talk about the character, and why it’s time he finally got his own movie.

BLACK PANTHER is easily one of my most anticipated for the year, and not just because it’s a Marvel movie. Coogler has a hell of a resume at his back with FRUITVALE STATION and CREED, and how he brings his sensibilities to a massive blockbuster is going to be fascinating to see. Boseman has proven an excellent T’Challa, and telling a superhero story from such a different perspective is one of the boosts the genre needs.

BLACK PANTHER hits theaters February 16.
