Chadwick Boseman Talks Evolving Role For Black Panther In The MCU

Captain America: Civil War was one of the most successful movies this summer and certainly got audiences talking about two new characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).

Boseman discussed his character’s introduction in Civil War recently and if the actions that took place within Civil War would be expanded upon in later Black Panther films.

“No, it’s not. We were all individually thinking about … When you get the role and go through the mythology, they’re certain things you want to preserve. You don’t want to give away certain things that you want to make sure happen, so you don’t want to do to much of this, to much of that, you want to make sure you concentrate.

I think that’s why they made his arc so complete, so that it is contained. You have to, in doing that, make sure you leave room for a lot of things that you want to happen. I can’t say what they are but that was thought out by me, thought out by the producers, the directors, I’m sure Stan Lee had something to say about it, Ryan Coogler had something to say about it. We argued, made up, and all that. That’s definitely part of the process.”

Also new to the Marvel Universe is Holland and Boseman had nothing but kind words when talking about his co-star.

“Oh, he’s great. I think he’s great. I can’t wait to see what he does. His humor, the hipness of the character, the youth of the character, it’s a fresh take on something that I really love.”

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Daniel Bruhl and Tom Holland, Captain America: Civil War hits Blu-Ray and DVD on September 13, 2016. Are you guys excited?
