Kevin Feige Dubs BLACK PANTHER A “Big Geopolitical Action Adventure” Linked To INFINITY WAR

We all know that next year’s Captain America: Civil War will finally bring the Black Panther to the big-screen and into the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe, but fans are still eager to know more about the future King of Wakanda’s 2018 standalone movie. And in the latest issue of Empire magazine, Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige offered some promising new details.

“The one is important,” said Feige of the Black Panther movie, which will be the last “Phase Three” movie before Marvel’s two-part Avengers: Infinity War event. “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.” And while Creed director Ryan Coogler is in line to direct, Kevin Feige assures Black Panther will have a “primarily African-American cast.” As for what the movie will be about, the Marvel producer says, “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.”

Things sound very promising for the Black Panther movie, which so far stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa and potentially Ernie Hudson as T’Chaka with a February 16, 2018, release date. In light of the Black Panther movie being linked directly to the highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, that could be where the Soul Stone is introduced if not during the two-part event. What do you think?

It’s official, Marvelites: Ryan Coogler will step up to direct Marvel’s “Black Panther,” in theaters February 16, 2018!

Chadwick Boseman will star in “Black Panther” after debuting as the character in the upcoming Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” in theaters May 6.

“We are fortunate to have such an esteemed filmmaker join the Marvel family,” said producer Kevin Feige. “The talents Ryan showcased in his first two films easily made him our top choice to direct ‘Black Panther.’ Many fans have waited a long time to see Black Panther in his own film, and with Ryan we know we’ve found the perfect director to bring T’Challa’s story to life.”

Coogler wrote and directed his first award-winning feature film, “Fruitvale Station,” in 2013. Most recently he directed the critically-acclaimed “Creed,” which earned Sylvester Stallone a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture.

Black Panther has been an important character in the Marvel universe for 50 years. He is the king of the technologically-advanced nation of Wakanda, and Panther has served as a member of the Avengers in addition to his many solo adventures.

Coogler is represented by WME and Cohen Gardner LLP.

Joe Robert Cole On Black Panther Script, Diversity, And More

Two years from right now we will be only days away from Black Panther hitting theaters. Marvel has previously received some criticism for the lack of diversity within the MCU, but this film is helping to change that. Chadwick Boseman is making his debut as T'Challa aka Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Ryan Coogler was confirmed as the director based on a script currently being written by Joe Robert Cole. Cole recently talked to Mother Jones about the process of joining the movie, staying true to the culture and comic, as well as reflecting society.

Cole has previous experience with Marvel going through their writers program. This connection gave him a foot in the door that helped him eventually land the job.

Having gone through the [Marvel] writer program, I knew Black Panther was in the pipeline and I knew they were big fans of my writing. But I had to compete with the other writers who were put up for it—no one hands out jobs.

It familiarized Marvel with my work and with me as a person. Being able to interact with [studio president] Kevin Feige and have him know who I am and know me as a person, and be able to then sit down and have a conversation about story with someone who's familiar and comfortable is invaluable.


As an African American, Cole understands just how important it is for them to get Black Panther right the first time around.

Black Panther is a historic opportunity to be a part of something important and special, particularly at a time when African Americans are affirming their identities while dealing with vilification and dehumanization. The image of a black hero on this scale is just really exciting.

Not only does Cole, Coogler, and Marvel have to get the character of Black Panther himself right, but they also have to figure out the correct way to portray the entire culture of Wakanda. He could not say too much, but he knows the culture is important.

We're in the process of figuring many of those things out. I think approaching the movie from a perspective that is rooted in the cultures of the continent is important.

In terms of his culture, we're thinking about where we are locating Wakanda within the continent, and what the people and history of that region are like. It's a process of investigation to help inform the story at this point. But we are going to be engaged with consultants who are experts on the continent and on African history and politics.


There have been plenty of social movements over the last year to try and bring more awareness to equal rights, cop brutality, and more. The team around Black Panther understand what is happening and hope to address some of these issues in a few years.

Personally—and Ryan [Coogler] and Nate Moore, the executive producer—we all are cognizant of what's going on in the world, in black communities, and in our country. We are aware of the importance of that, and the platform this movie provides us with. But I can't give you the specifics.

Cole was also asked about the possibility of people being turned off from seeing the movie because of having a black lead. This is an absurd concept in and of itself, and one that he dismissed as well.

I don't think so. There is a huge fan base for the Black Panther comic and for Marvel as a whole. And I think there is great anticipation across the board for the movie. I think that's how Marvel is approaching it and I know that's how I'm approaching it. I imagine Ryan feels the same way.


Black Panther is scheduled to hit theaters February 16, 2018.

I really hope this is good. I've been waiting for a Black Panther film for what seems like forever.

Black Panther is one of those heros who's "coolness" really depends on who's writing him

Reginald Hudlin's "Black Panther is the best and responsible for all the black heros origins and all the white heroes are jealous because he kicked their ass in the past" did a lot of damage to the brand

The problem with Hudlin's run is it seemed like the only way for him to make Panther look good was to make everyone else look worse. Even Storm suffered from this. Some DC writers do this with Batman. It doesn't have to be this way. You can build up a character without tearing others down.

That has to be my biggest pet peeve in comics

It beyond disrespectful to make characters you don't write look bad

How is they guy who is writing Captain America going to keep him cool when you just showed Black Panther kicking his ass

Batman bringing down villains who are major problems for other heros is also a big problem

The only thing worse is when you start killing characters from other books (coughkevinsmithcough)

Yes same plus it looks like Spiderman would be taking his spot back in Civil War that really pissed me off the most tbh.

Don't get me wrong I like Spidey in my top 10, but damn was I so looking forward to seeing The Black Panther as the guy everyone wants on their team.

Never been into Black Panther. Never understood what's great about him. Then again I never read a BP issue so never gave him a real chance.

Re: Marvel's Black Panther, (July 8, 2018)

I don't think you gotta worry about Black Panther losing any screen time due to Spidey. They're introducing his main villain in AoU and could be introducing where he's located. They've obviously been thinking of BP for a long time, he'll still play a big role.

I understand why they pushed the other movies back. Spiderman is arguably more popular than Supes, Bats or Iron Man. The reboot will be a big deal, especially if anyone from the MCU shows up which I think could happen per their deal.

Re: Marvel's Black Panther, (July 8, 2018)

The thing is we've had 5 Spiderman movies, numerous cartoons, ect...Black Panther is new and fresh.

Don't get me wrong, I like Spidey, but c'mon! They could have saved him for the final film of phase 3 instead of squeezing him in like that. Its like Sony is getting rewarded for not wanting to make a deal sooner and they get all the benefits even though they were being bitches until their reboot failed miserably. Fucking dumb IMO. Marvel was doing fine without Spidey, what would waiting till the end of phase 3 to bring in his solo hurt? He could have been the focal of phase 4.

Black Panther in between Infinity War part 1 and 2 makes little sense TBH. Captain Marvel and Inhumans do, with the whole cosmic stuff, and stuff...
