Chadwick Boseman, who is set play Black Panther first in Captain America: Civil War, and subsequently in Black Panther, spoke to Entertainment Weekly. And besides the ‘meow’ EW (pronounced eeuu here) cover and equating Black Panther’s talons to the ‘envy of housewives’, Boseman gave an interesting take on his character:
[Black Panther is] definitely not the life of the party in this instance. I think this is something true of the comic book character and the movie. You never quite know where he stands. There’s always a bit of concealing and mystery. So I think mysterious is more his boat. Not to say there’s not charm and he can’t be a ladies’ man and all that. It’s more like if there is humor, it’s more like James Bond.
Captain America: Civil War synopsis reads:
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May.
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is slated to hit theatres come May 6th 2015
