The new Black Panther comic from Ta-Nehisi Coates has proven to be one of Marvel’s most ambitious and successful ‘books of the year, and now the studio is getting ready to dig deeper into the world of modern-day Wakanda.
Looks like Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) won’t be the only villain the newly minted King of Wakanda, the man formerly known as Prince T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), will have to go toe to toe with in Marvel’s Black Panther.
If you haven’t been reading Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Black Panther comic run, you should be. It’s complicated, political, smart and ambitious. But it also has some heavy lifting to do when it comes to Wakanda.
Sure, Captain America: Civil War was awesome for a lot of reasons — but the introduction of Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther was certainly near the top of the list. So, how do they plan on following up that success with a standalone film?
