Black Panther is less than a month away and we just can’t wait to see what it has in store for us, as there are literally so many new aspects of the MCU coming into the light. He was introduced into the MCU in Civil War movie played by Chadwick Boseman who totally nailed it.
He will reprise his role in upcoming solo movie directed by Ryan Coogler (Creed). Marvel is known to follow a code of secrecy and keep plot points under wraps till the release. But one thing is sure that the movie will skip the traditional origin story. A studio executive said in an interview:
“What’s great is that people have already met Chadwick Boseman in Civil War, so now we get to jump in feet first without having to tell a more traditional origin story. We meet him as his world is changing. Black Panther takes place right after the events of Civil War, so T’Challa’s father has just been killed, he has returned home to Wakanda, and T’Challa has to navigate potentially becoming the new ruler of this nation. He never intended to become the king for years because he figured his dad would be around for a long time. T’Chaka’s death is, in a lot of ways, the catalyst for everything that’s happening in Black Panther.”
Fans have been excited to see what this unique movie has to offer as it probably might turn out to be one of the best comic book movies of this year. This movie is bringing totally new things on the plate that we have never seen before.
We saw only a little portion of what we could expect from this movie in the third Captain America movie. We saw what Black Panther is capable of doing, and we only got a brief intro for Wakanda towards the post-credits scene.
Well, what we saw there was not even close to what the trailers revealed as fans were literally blown away when they got a look at how technologically advanced Wakanda actually is.
It was known that Wakanda is a third world country and is pretty advanced as compared to the rest of the world, but when the trailers came out, fans saw that it was actually way beyond their imagination and it almost seemed that this movie is actually set in the future.
There is so much new technology that the movie brings in this movie. This advanced tech as we saw in the trailers will be used in Black Panther’s suit as well.
When we first met Panther in Civil War, we saw him wearing a suit which seemed as a thick fabric bodysuit contoured with heavy seems and accented with silver, but the technology involved is far more advanced as the suit is completely made up of Vibranium and is totally bulletproof and agile, as it allows T’Challa to run as fast as 50 Miles/Hour, survive jumps as high as a 10 story building, and even endure against missiles.
But, the thing that catches everyone’s eye over here is the second suit which was revealed in the Black Panther trailer. The new tech that is installed within this suit is nothing that we have ever seen before. This is way beyond Tony Stark’s Iron Man as well. Moreover, this certainly will be the means to Tony’s Infinity War Suit.
T’Challa’s new suit will certainly play a big part in the upcoming Black Panther, as we noticed in the trailers that Erik Killmonger’s Golden Jaguar suit is also based upon more or less the same tech. Shuri, who is T’Challa’s sister is Wakanda’s top armorer and technophile, and she’s turned the near-mystical powers of vibranium into a suit of miracles.
As we have seen that the suit actually appears to on the body of T’Challa and even Erik Killmonger out of nowhere as it seems, this tech is way beyond our imagination.
There are 2 possible explanations to this technology. First may be less plausible as it deals with Wakandan magic. Wakanda is an advanced nation but does it also have a mystical side to it? And if there is a mystical aspect in this nation, then Shuri might have somehow been able to mix it up with the tech of the suit.
The second one which is highly plausible is that as we see the suit spreading throughout the body of T’Challa and Erik, there is one little thing which does not change, which is the necklace with spikes that both these individuals wear.
So, is it possible that Shuri has managed to fit an entire Vibranium suit within a little necklace? Well, this could be possible with the advanced nano-technology which has been used in this suit, and this is how the wearer of this suit is able to get it on him at any point he or she may want. This will probably be the means to Tony’s Infinity War suit as T’Challa may pass on this technology to Tony as well.
We have seen the unique chest piece and most people now believe that Tony’s new suit will actually be contained within his new chest piece, his arc reactor considering how sleek and close to the body this suit looks to be.
We saw in Captain America Civil War, the upgrades Tony made to his tech and suit. Tony made an entire gauntlet grow out of what we thought was just a watch. And now Tony does not need to remove his helmet while wearing the suit, the helmet just folds and fits right into the suit.
Now, what is really insane about Tony’s new suit is that it is actually MCU’s version of the iconic Extremis Armor from the comics. The Extremis armor actually has the ability to hide in Tony’s body.
While it sounds a little too unrealistic for the movie, Marvel has worked on it and will give us a new form of Extremis Armor as the armor will be installed within the arc reactor fitted on the cloth that is mentioned above. Tony will be able to transform into Iron Man anytime he wants as the Armor will come out of the clothes he is wearing.
Just imagine that Tony will actually get this tech from T’Challa. The only big question now is how and when will this happen! Here’s the official synopsis of the movie:
“After the death of his father, T’Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king — and as Black Panther — gets tested when he’s drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people”.
Black Panther will hit the theaters on February 16th, 2018. Don’t miss this one. Well, if you need a reason why you should watch then let me tell you something – The sixth Infinity gem i.e Soul stone is hidden somewhere in the Kingdom of Wakanda.
