Black Panther, the first black superhero in comic book history, is getting his silver screen debut in Captain America: Civil War. Chadwick Boseman plays T’Challa, the prince of fictional African country Wakanda who moonlights as a warrior hero named Black Panther.
“Whether he was the first or he’s the last, it doesn’t matter as long as he’s as cool as he is,” says Boseman.
Black Panther plays a central role to the plot of Civil War and will get his own film directed by Creed filmmaker Ryan Coogler in 2018. He will be the first black superhero to get a Marvel Studios film.
