Last Thursday, Chadwick Boseman hinted the wrap up of Black Panther production with a single tweet along with a group photo with the cast members. Later, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige also confirmed that the filming of the standalone movie is complete.
Recently, Feige had a chat with Vulture, discussing his experience in the making of Black Panther. Going by his statements, it looks like the standalone film would be better than any other debut movie released under MCU.
When Feige was asked what persuaded the studio to “jump the gun”, the president responded with a perfect reply-justifying Black Panther’s importance from the comics.
“I think it’s two things,” said Feige. “Black Panther is a huge part of the Marvel Comics mythology, and has been for 50-plus years. Other than his awesome, relatively brief appearance in Civil War, his history has been relatively untapped.”
Feige also seems to be rejoiced by the coming together of the cast as it comprises of Oscar winners and stars known for their roles in TV shows. It is surprising that MCU was able to bring on such talents for a debut movie.
“Every day, seeing that cast come together … it’s just amazing,” said Feige. “Across the board, it’s the highest-class cast we’ve had on a first movie.”
Black Panther releases on February 16th, 2018. The film has been suggested to be different than other MCU titles released by far due to its possible dark and grittier adaptation. It has also been revealed that T’challa’s (main character playing as Black Panther) “links to the next Avengers films,” according to Feige.
