In a few weeks, we’ll meet the Black Panther, portrayed by Chadwick Boseman, and Spiderman, protrayed by Tom Holland, in Captain America: Civil War. Boseman’s character will return in a standalone Black Panther movie in 2018 while we’ll meet Spidey a year earlier.
At this point, the Black Panther standalone movie is in the writing stage, with Ryan Coogler brought on board to direct and co-write. Fandango got a chance to ask Kevin Feige about the tone of Black Panther, as a stand-alone film.
What Ryan Coogler is working on right now in the early days of putting that Black Panther film together is a very sweeping sort of geopolitical movie, set within the wonder of Wakanda and the action of the Panther.
Earlier reports have said that Black Panther joins the MCU in Captain America: Civil War because of events in Wakanda, so we will probably see the country in the upcoming film.
As for the currently untitled Spiderman reboot, the tone of this standalone film will be quite different. It has constantly been compared to a John Hughes film, something Feige reiterated to Fandango. He also talked about the rest of the Spidey world that we will see in the future and how they are already planning on making them unique.
The great thing about the Spidey characters is that there are a lot of them. A lot of them have been in other films. A lot of them from the comics haven’t been in other films yet. We’ll do a combination of both.
We will get to see both characters when they show up in Captain America: Civil War on May 6.
