Black Panther is widely known as one of the most prominent characters in the Marvel Universe. The superhero has come a long way since making his first appearance in the comics in 1966.
Earlier this week, Marvel Entertainment released a small clip to educate fans of Wakanda’s history in the comics and its ruler’s family lineage. Today, Pursue News has put together an infographic for fans which breaks down the character’s 52 years of (T’Challa) journey from the comics to finally making way to the big screen.
The infographic is in the form of 4 chapters with the timeline of events that paved the way for the character’s introduction in video games, Animated TV series and eventually making his debut into the cinematic universe in Captain America: Civil War. Fans can find the infographic below.
Chadwick Boseman may have been the only choice of actor chosen for the role of Black Panther/ T’Challa. But in 1992, Wesley Snipes was the first to show an intention to portray the character on the big screen. He also went on to fight for the role for a decade as pointed out in the infographic. Recently, the actor shared his views and revealed that he was “overjoyed.”
