Marvel Studios signs its “first Black director” for a Superhero movie

Black Panther finally debut in the big Marvel cinematic universe with an important role in the Captain America Civil war movie. He saw his father dying in an explosion before his own eyes at the time of UN Special Panel meeting where they gathered to ratify Sokovia accords to bring oversight into the supposedly unilateral actions of the Avengers. The man responsible for it was Baron Zemo who lost everyone in the family during the Wakanda showdown with Ultron and hold Avengers responsible for his personal loss. He framed Winter soldier for the incident which set off a chain of events pitting Team Cap against Team Iron-man.

As a result, Black Panther or T’Challa, son of King Ta-Shaka (the deceased father), went after Winter soldier to settle his personal score. He is a brilliant strategist, scientist, tactician with a hybrid fighting style incorporating acrobatics and animal mimicry. He wears a suit made of vibranium (world’s strongest metal) which is used to make Captain America’s Shield as well. He is also called as “King of the dead” in latest marvel comics, which gives him access to all the experiences and wealth of knowledge of the previous Black Panthers.

According to credible sources, the independent Black Panther movie has been shot simultaneously with the Civil war movie, and Russo brothers brought the creative team of the movie to help them with the Black Panther scenes to ensure consistency in the tone and character arc. Guess what, the Marvel studios has just signed Ryan Coogler (of Creed fame) to direct the Black Panther solo movie, he will be the first ever Black person to have got such an opportunity from Marvel. He told the entertainment magazine Vulture “I used to get crushed when I was younger and would watch movies about young people, and I’d be like, No – That’s not us.” He has struggled a lot in his initial days in Hollywood, faced many rejections until he struck gold with Creed starring Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordon, he is probably the ideal choice to direct Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther.
