It's Black Panther's world, The Avengers are just going to be living in it when they visit Wakanda in Infinity War. Black Panther has taken the world by storm and luckily, Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa is going to be a major player in the upcoming Marvel event. Not only is Black Panther going to be featured prominently in the movie, but the heroes are going to journey to his homeland of Wakanda for one of the biggest battles. Now, Boseman has shed some light on why the battle comes to Wakanda and how it's going to go down.
With Avengers 3 now set to arrive in theaters on April 27, a week earlier than initially announced, Marvel is starting to market the movie more thoroughly. Chadwick Boseman spoke about the movie during a set visit as part of the promotion for the movie and was asked why Earth's mightiest heroes and, some of their companions from space, wind up fighting in Wakanda. Here's what he had to say about it.
"You have a world problem with Thanos, a problem that affects everyone in the world. So Wakanda is on the world stage, and we're obviously advanced in a way where we can help with the situation, so that is all that's happening here."
At the end of Black Panther, T'Challa made the decision for Wakanda to become a more active participant in the affairs of the world. Since Thanos will be threatening the entire world, it makes sense that they would try and rally the forces of Wakanda in order to give Earth its best shot at survival. As for how this is all going to go down? The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy are going to be adjusting to how things work in Wakanda. Chadwick Boseman says that there will be a clash there, but that the conflict won't necessarily be between the heroes, as they have a common enemy in Thanos.
"I think what is good is that in this situation, you're seeing [the Avengers] in my world. They're in my world, so it's interesting to have them enter our space, which is not something that happens all of the time. I think it's important for us to give the flavor of Wakanda, and they're really adjusting to our space, so that will be part of the fun of the movie. And the Guardians entering it... obviously, there is a clash. All of that is conflict, but it's not conflict between us necessarily, so, but it is an emotional, psychological, social conflict."
Considering that Black Panther has grossed more than $1 billion worldwide and is showing few signs of slowing down, it should benefit Avengers: Infinity War a great deal to have those characters and Wakanda featured so prominently. There's a lot of characters to handle, but if directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo proved anything with Captain America: Civil War, that won't be a problem for them. In any case, it sounds like the Wakanda bits of Infinity War are going to be a lot of fun for Marvel fans. This news comes to us courtesy of Cinema Blend.
