Fans first got to see Chadwick Boseman make his debut as Black Panther aka T’Challa in last year’s critically-acclaimed “Captain America: Civil War”. We now have an update on where his solo adventure will be taking him.
During one particular “Civil War” post credits scene, viewers were given a glimpse at the mountains and fog of his country. But according to Screen Rant, director Ryan Coogler is also planning to take the King of Wakanda elsewhere – back to the 90s when he was studying abroad in America.
It was revealed that Marvel will be using a 1990s-era AC Transit bus logo in Black Panther’s solo adventure. What’s the significance you ask? Well, the remodelled bus will be used in a flashback scene to show T’Challa as a student studying at Saint Mary’s College High School in Berkeley, CA.
Those who are familiar with the comics will know that at one point, the young T’Challa decides to live in Europe and America for a short period of time. As Cooper Hood points out, it’ll be interesting to see find out why T’Challa is sent away and how he embraces America. Viewers will learn more about his past as well as witness his journey to becoming Wakanda’s leader.
Joining Chadwick Boseman are Angela Bassett, Michael B. Jordan, Martin Freeman, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, and Lupita Nyong’o.
“Black Panther” is slated for release on 16th February 2018.
