This week, Captain America: Civil War will finally hit movie theaters, and when it does, it’ll introduce a character many fans have been waiting to see within the Marvel Cinematic Universe for some time now: Black Panther. Chadwick Boseman will be tackling the role of T’Challa/The Black Panther, making his debut in Civil War before going on to headline his own solo film in 2018. So, this week, instead of focusing on various other characters, we thought we’d turn our attention towards one that is sure to be on everyone’s radar after Civil War arrives later this week.

Two iconic superheroes from Marvel’s comic library will be introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War (2016). While everyone and their grandmother (or in this case, aunt) are raving about the spectacular performance of Spider-Man, another memorable show-stealer is the Black Panther. With talk and criticism on the lack of diversity in superhero cinema, particularly Marvel movies, the Black Panther property is a big cultural step for Marvel Studios. See why as we cover Black Panther’s history and background in this week’s Profile.
