Chadwick Boseman hints at more panthers in solo movie
Boseman shared what to expect from the upcoming Marvel superhero film, saying that viewers would “learn about Wakanda, its culture, its traditions, the past”. He also hinted at the inclusion of “more Panthers that have existed in the past”, reports AceShowbiz.com.
“Captain America: Civil War was a jumping off point for the Black Panther character,” Boseman said. “It’s not necessarily an origin story because he remains a mystery through most of the movie.
When I take the mask off and it’s revealed that it’s the Prince of Wakanda, that’s the guy whose father was just killed, it’s a surprise,” Boseman said.
He said that there is a lot to “reveal about the character”. “There is definitely more of his origin in ‘Black Panther’. You’re going to learn about Wakanda, its culture, its traditions, the past. You can go through all the comic books and know that there’s more Panthers that have existed in the past, that’s origin,” the 39-year-old added.
‘Black Panther’ is expected to begin production early next year.
