Marvel's Black Panther movie will be part of Marvel Phase Three, in which the character is rumored to be introduced in Captain America 3, also known as the Marvel Civil War. The original story of Black Panther has T'Challa, prince of Wakanda, must rise to take the mantle of the Black Panther after his father, the king, is treacherously killed.
Earlier this month, an unconfirmed report revealed that T'Chaka, the father of Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa, will be killed at some point during Captain America: Civil War. While that report wouldn't say who killed the Wakanda leader, most assumed it will be Ulysses Klaue, since this character kills T'Chaka in the original comics. We still don't know who is playing T'Chaka in Captain America: Civil War, but Chadwick Boseman is set to make his MCU debut in this highly-anticipated superhero adventure.
What's interesting is that, since T'Chaka will presumably be alive at some point in Captain America: Civil War, before his death, that means Klaue must have failed in his mission outlined in this file, which states he was paid $10 million for the kill. We don't know who paid him this exorbitant fee, but the file also mentions that he is a former member of Intelligencia, a group from the comics comprised of intellectual, science-driven villains such as MODOK and The Leader. It's also possible that this happened before the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and fans will first learn about it in Captain America: Civil War, especially since we haven't heard who is playing T'chaka yet.Read More
As production continues in Berlin on the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War, new photos from the set have emerged, giving us our first look at the Black Panther in action, along with Captain America and The Winter Soldier. Unfortunately, these photos don't feature Chadwick Boseman, Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan, but these images from The Daily Mail do tease some intriguing action. The scene was filmed atop a Berlin, Germany building known as ICC Messedamm, which is rumored to be doubling for United Nations headquarters in Vienna, Austria.
We know that Captain America: Civil War takes place in the aftermath of Avengers: Age of Ultron, where another "international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage." This leads to "a system of accountability and a governing body" to be put in place, which will determine when to bring in Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Yesterday, a report surfaced that revealed this incident features Captain America and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) trying to track down the villainous Crossbones (Frank Grillo), who sets off a suicide bomb that levels a large building.Read More
It isn't known if F. Gary Gray has even met with anyone at Marvel yet, but if he has, this won't be the first time he has dealt with the studio. The director was in the running to direct Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but he eventually dropped out to make Straight Outta Compton. Anthony Russo and Joe Russo went on to make Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and they are now currently filming Captain America: Civil War.
Marvel was previously considering Oscar-nominated director Ava DuVernay (Selma), but the filmmaker revealed last month that she had backed out of directing the superhero movie because she didn't see eye-to-eye with the studio in regards to the story. Mark Bailey is writing the screenplay, but no story details have been confirmed just yet. Fans who saw Avengers: Age of Ultron know there are a number of references to Black Panther and his home country of Wakanda in that movie, which could be setting up this new superhero movie.Read More
The studio still hasn't found a director or a screenwriter for Black Panther yet, but fans will get a first glimpse of Chadwick Boseman as the title character in next year's Captain America: Civil War, which is currently filming in Atlanta. No details have been given for Black Panther's stand alone movie, but a report from last month revealed that T'challa is starting to come into his own, since his father T'chaka is getting old, teasing that T'challa will likely take over as the ruler of his homeland, Wakanda. Would you have liked to see Ava DuVernay direct Black Panther?

Last month, we reported that Selma director Ava DuVernay is being courted by Disney to direct one of their Marvel Phase 3 movies, which is believed to be either Black Panther or Captain Marvel. Today, an unconfirmed report from MCUEXchange surfaced claiming that the director has signed on to helm Black Panther, one of their most highly-anticipated superhero movies. This has not been confirmed by Marvel and Disney yet, so we'll have to wait and see if an officially announcement gets released in the next few days.
This report goes onto claim that Ava DuVernay will be on set for Captain America: Civil War, where Chadwick Boseman will make his debut as Black Panther. And his homeland of Wakanda will be seen on screen for the first time. This explains why the filmmaker is reportedly coming on board so early, since Black Panther won't hit theaters until November 2018. Recent photos from the Captain America: Civil War set revealed the Institute For Infectious Diseases (IFID) building, which some thought may be in Wakanda, although these scenes will most likely be set in either Uganda or Nigeria.Read More
