(International Business Times) — Chadwick Boseman is all set to play Black Panther in a movie focusing on that Marvel character. But first, he will be introduced in “Captain America: Civil War.” Marvel President Kevin Feige said it was a conscious decision to introduce Black Panther in an earlier movie, as a character was needed as a neutral voice amid the feud between Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).
“You know what? We’re doing a ‘Black Panther’ movie, but it would actually be smart to have him fill this role we need in ‘Civil War’ and introduce him here first. So it always just depends on the story and the way we want to tell the story,” Feige told Superhero Hype.
