When Captain America: Civil War debuts in just a few months, we will get our introduction to Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. He is one of the few new characters debuting in the MCU throughout the movie. During the recent flourish of Civil War news (you can catch up on it all here), we got to our first look at him in normal everyday clothing.
It has been reported that he will not choose a side throughout the movie, even though we have seen him standing with Team Iron Man. The question still remains why he would join the fight when it is not happening inside of Wakanda’s borders.
It’s my political mission to tame it and get it under control. T’Challa is a prince of Wakanda. All heroes have a weight on their shoulders, but there will eventually be a difference in what I have to carry politically and socially.
We now have confirmation that he is only a prince during Civil War, meaning that T’Chaka is still alive and well. Maybe those Ernie Hudson casting rumors proved to be true. Wakanda will probably be shown in the movie, so we could see him then. One thing that has yet to be addressed is the accent of Black Panther, and now Boseman has given some details about it.
The idea of Wakanda is sort of, what if Timbuktu hasn’t been conquered? I basically listened to people and picked what sounded cool, since it’s not a specific place. It’s in the southern, central part of Africa. The attitude, the musicality, as is my preference of the character. It has to fit his dignity.
Black Panther is reportedly on the hunt for Bucky during the movie, and that looks to be the case during some of the footage we’ve seen. With Bucky set to play a large role in the movie, we should be seeing plenty from him. The 2016 version of Bucky will be different than who he was in the 1940s. According the Sebastian Stan, he will be dealing with figuring out who he is.
He’ll never just be Bucky Barnes again. This movie, for him, is very much the good wolf and the bad wolf coming together – or maybe not coming together. So when is he triggered? When is he remembering things? He’s trying to find out about himself, his past, and what sort of world he’s in.
Bringing a well known assassin and the one responsible for killing Tony’s parents will certainly cause plenty of controversy and tension between Captain America and Iron Man. Chris Evans says it does far more than spark an argument.
The dynamic of Bucky pours gasoline on the open flame.
Since Bucky will be such a polarizing character in the film, there will plenty of characters and viewers that will be hesitant to trust him. This looks to be taken to a new level as the issue of Empire reveals Bucky will undergo some tests, possibly without the knowledge of Cap.
The magazine also reveals that The Winter Soldier is taken away in shackles for “psychological evaluation” while Steve meets with General Ross
This could be when those tests are happening, which causes Steve to break him out and put the rest of the Avengers behind him. At first I thought this could be a flashback scene, but a psychological test makes more sense and is way cooler frankly.
Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to hit theaters May 6, 2016.
