Still here? Ok, cool.
So somebody dies next year in Captain America: Civil War.
Want to know who it is?
Of course you do because you’re still here.
Yep, Black Panther’s daddy.
For now I won’t spoil how or when it happens or by whom, but expect T’Chaka to be toe tagged next year in the film.
For those who don’t know, in the comics, T’Chaka was the Chieftan of Wakanda, pledged to protect the sacred metal known as Vibranium. From an early age, he excelled in the ways of magic and took a stance to preserve Wakanda’s heritage by honoring the “old ways” of magic use despite the technological advancements of Wakanda.
Since Wakanda was independent with no ties to any other nation he was eventually called to a UN meeting in hopes of other countries trading with them. He refused however and was assassinated by Ulysses Klaw while he tried to protect his wife and children. His death made his S’yan the Black Panther. S’yan was later succeeded by T’Challa.
T’Challa will be played by Chadwick Boseman in the upcoming film.
