Entertainment Weekly has posted both a photo and cover art involving Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther from the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War”. The new issue of the magazine goes into the film and offers a new interview with the actor about the role.
Talking about the character’s personality, Boseman says you’re never quite sure what side the character is on:
“He’s definitely not the life of the party in this instance. I think this is something true of the comic book character and the movie. You never quite know where he stands. There’s always a bit of concealing and mystery. So I think mysterious is more his boat. Not to say there’s not charm and he can’t be a ladies’ man and all that. It’s more like if there is humor, it’s more like James Bond.”
Executive Producer Nate Moore adds that:
“He’s someone who hasn’t necessarily made up his mind about either side and whose agenda isn’t exactly what Cap’s agenda or what Tony’s agenda is. And I think that brings him into conflict weirdly with both characters at different times in the film. He is the prince of an African nation that has so far stayed very much sort of in the shadows. And eventually the film will draw him and his father out of the shadows.”
“Captain America: Civil War” will be released on May 6th 2016.
