Chadwick Boseman announced as Black Panther.
Setting a new place at the table for Spidey, Marvel has reshuffled Thor: Ragnarok to November 3, 2017, sent Black Panther to July 6, 2018, and Captain Marvel to November 2, 2018. The mega team-up pics Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 will be released as planned in 2018 and 2019, respectively, before Marvel’s Inhumans hits theaters on July 12, 2019.
To be honest, don't really care about Black Panther or Captain Marvel getting pushed back.
Black Panther – July 6, 2018
'Creed’ Helmer Ryan Coogler Confirmed to Direct
It’s official! Creed helmer Ryan Coogler will direct Black Panther. After months of rumors of his involvement, Marvel officially confirmed today that Coogler will direct Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa in the iconic hero’s first solo film after his highly-anticipated introduction in Captain America: Civil War.
Coogler, who previously earned festival success with his devastating drama Fruitvale Station, is currently riding high on the massive success of Creed — a critical and commercial success alike that not only rebooted the stagnant Rocky franchise with gusto, but landed Sylvester Stallone a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor. Coogler also recently took home the LA Film Critics award for Best Director.
It's too bad Marvel does not have the rights to Ororo Munroe aka Storm. She married T'Challa in the comics.
Maybe they can work something out like they did with Spidey...
I felt the same way when it was announced and didn't even think about it until after finishing Civil War. I want to see the Black Panther movie much more than Dr Strange or a third Thor film, although with Hulk being in Thor 3 my anticipation for that is still pretty high. I don't think they will but hopefully they don't roll back the clock to tell the story. I won't go into details but Civil War set the character, and Wakanda, up really well.
I'm not sure if he's confirmed to return or not but I hope Andy Serkis/Ulysses Klaue is the villain. He was in Age of Ultron just long enough to show he could be an interesting character but didn't have enough time establish much other than he's a weapons smuggler/dealer. Serkis is an underrated actor. He gets a lot of praise for his motion capture work but I think his regular acting is top notch as well.
Yeah it did!
yup. i had no desire to see a Black Panther movie prior to Civil war. Now excited for it... guessing Cap will play a role as well.
Either that or possibly Bucky?
Bucky's not a big enough draw box-office wise. If you look at all the coming movies (except Strange), you have team-ups... Spiderman reboot (with a side of Stark), Thor 3... with Hulk. I expect them to do the same for Cap. I think he's just as much a draw at this point as Iron Man and I'd be really surprised if they hold him out of theaters for another two years.
Bucky's in cryo so it wouldn't make sense to bring him back. Also, that would put him in 3 movies which is a lot for a somewhat minor character. I'm curious as to what villain they're going to use. A natural enemy would be White Wolf. The sibling rivalry alone would make this great. Erik Killmonger too. Perhaps both.
Depends. One rumor that has been around forever is that eventually Bucky becomes Captain America and Chris Evans version of Captain America dies just like in the comics. If that rumor is true, it makes sense to keep Bucky's character an essential part of the MCU.
