The Film Strip: Black Panther Tips Scale in His ‘Captain America’ Debut

What the Hell! First Batman and Superman are trying to kill each other. Now, the teams in “Captain America: Civil War” are beating the crap out of each other. The superheroes are supposedly there to protect us and keep the universe safe from harm. At least in “Civil War,” the beef between Team Captain America (Chris Evans) and Team Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) is grounds for great filmmaking, and audiences will get more bangs for their bucks.

In addition, the long awaited arrival of Black Panther/T’Challa, (Chadwick Boseman) who makes his screen debut, has a pivotal part in the film—when seeds are sown in Lagos, Nigeria for discord. Also added to the mix along with the all the other bold name Marvel characters is Spider-Man (Tom Holland), through a special deal with SONY.

Now that Black Panther’s future on the big screen is cemented, where will they go with it, and how inclusive will his comic history be in the final outcome? Will they deal with his marriage to the “X-Men” character Storm? It should be very interesting.
