‘The Black Panther’ Star: The Marvel Legacy Is All About The Black Panther
In a recent interview with The Wrap, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige talked about the upcoming superhero movie, The Black Panthers, which is slated to hit theaters this summer.
“I can’t talk about anything until we get to the day we actually see it, but I can say this about the movie.
The black Panther is all about the black man, the Black Panther is about the man that I am, and that’s the black superhero,” Feige said.
“The Black Widow is all black.
She’s not a female superhero.
She is a woman, but she’s a female that’s also a black superhero.
The Black Widow has a darker, more interesting history.
It’s all about her and her family.”
Feige also revealed that the Black Panthers will take place in Alabama, which the Marvel Universe has historically depicted as a hotbed of anti-black sentiment.
“The Black Panthers are a group of revolutionaries who have a message, a political message.
And the message is that we’re not going to let a few bigots and bigots in government or in society, that we have to fight for the lives and safety of all people,” he said.
Feige’s comments were made during a Q&A session during the Marvel’s Hall of Fame panel, which was moderated by Kevin Feig.
The Avengers and Captain America: Civil War will star Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Paul Bettany.
The film will be released on July 6, 2018.
