Marvel's Phase Three is shaping up to be absolutely huge. We'll get 10 movies arriving between this year and 2019, starting with Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange, and ending with Avengers: Infinity War - Part II and Inhumans. In between these adventures will be a slew of stand alone movies, including Black Panther. The title character of which, played by Chadwick Boseman, is being introduced in Captain America: Civil War this summer. While we don't know when production will begin quite yet on Black Panther, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed to Empire Magazine that long rumored Ryan Coogler will direct.

Chadwick Boseman is the only cast member attached to star in Black Panther, but a rumor surfaced in April that the studio was seeking Ernie Hudson to play T'Challa's father, T'Chaka. Rumors have also surfaced that T'Chaka could either die in Captain America: Civil War, or pass on his throne of Wakanda to his son at some point in the movie, but that has not been confirmed. Of course, the producer wouldn't shed any light on how Black Panther leads into Avengers: Infinity War Part I, but he did also add that the production will feature a primarily African-American cast.

Boseman's ‘Black Panther’ Will Be Timeless Says Mackie

Captain America: Civil War will be the first MCU movie to address the concept of a "secret identity," since no one knows that T'challa, who is part of the royal family of Wakanda, is actually Black Panther. A new scene description from the movie reveals that a silent T'challa is walking with Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and The Falcon, along with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Martin Freeman's unidentified character. While T'challa remains quiet throughout this scene, he is present while Cap and Iron Man are about to be disciplined for the latest disaster involving the Avengers. This epic adventure will also bring back Paul Rudd's Scott Lang, who clashed with The Falcon in this summer's Ant-Man. When Anthony Mackie was asked if Falcon and Lang will go toe-to-toe in Captain America: Civil War, he would only say that he's waiting for his rematch. What do you think about these new Captain America: Civil War details?
