The Black Panther has been apart of Marvel Comics for 52 years, now the character will finally get his own standalone movie. Marvel has released a featurette on the comic book origins of the character.
After debuting in Captain America: Civil War filmmaker Ryan Coogler, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige and Stan Lee, who co-created Panther with the late Jack Kirby, are taking a look back on the history of this groundbreaking hero in a new video exploring how the comics have inspired the Feb. 16 movie.
“You want the wow factor, but it’s not just stuff blowing up. It’s definitely a character piece,” says Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman. “It’s interesting, unlike a lot of superheroes he has to balance a nation.”
