Marvel’s Black Panther To Delve Into Its 90’s Roots
Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther story got off to an emotional start during the events of last year’s Captain America: Civil War. But it seems that the actor’s first stand-alone movie will delve deeper into the young Prince’s history before he assumed the mantle of the Wakandan protector with reports indicating that Marvel is digging deep into the comic book’s 1990’s past.
Sources out of East Bay Times note that with filming soon to commence, Marvel Studios have sought out and been given permission to use a 90’s era Californian based AC transport logo in the upcoming Black Panther film. Its been stated that this will be used in a flashback sequence but with Michael B. Jordan set to assume to role of the infamous Black Panther villain Erik Killmonger. Fans of comic book writer Christopher Priest 90’s run on the Black Panther comic (and his extensive work on the Killmonger character) will be excited to see that the notorious villain may have a deeper connection to Boseman’s T’Challa given that the pairs most famous battles occurred on US soil.
With production actually based in Alabama, it can be inferred that a young T’Challa will be using the transport to travel to the state. But with this confirmation that some scenes will be filmed outside the new King’s Wakendan nation. It seems that the Black Panther’s past may come back to bite him in the ass when the film is released early next year.
