Black Panther is a standalone film: Marvel Studios producer

The motion picture is expected to expand on the storyline that was first introduced in Civil War of how T'Challa becomes the superhero

Published: 27th January 2018

Marvel Studios producer Nate Moore believes that the upcoming superhero film Black Panther doesn't rely on current plot points in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and therefore can be passed off as a standalone project.

Moore, who has earlier worked on Captain America: The Winter Solider and Captain America: Civil War, has teamed up with filmmaker Ryan Coogler for the upcoming Black Panther film.

Despite the character appearing in Civil War, Moore says the film can be seen as just a "stand alone" film.

"Black Panther is inherently linked because of Civil War connections and because of the Ultron connections with Klaue. So there are strings that we are playing with. But again, much like Doctor Strange, we felt this had enough story that it could stand alone beyond those things," he said.

"We wanted to give Ryan the freedom to tell a story that wasn't relying on other things that were happening in the MCU. Now that doesn't mean what happens in the film won't have ripples in the MCU but the film itself isn't relying on other plot points in the MCU," he added.

The film is based on the first ever black superhero in mainstream American comics who was created by Marvel Comics writer Stan Lee and the equally iconic artist-and-writer Jack Kirby and first appeared in Fantastic Four #52 in 1966.

T'Challa's father T'Chaka is king of the African nation Wakanda and has the ceremonial title Black Panther as the chief of the panther tribe, but is killed when a bomb goes off at the UN making his son the Black Panther.

The film stars Lupita Nyong'o, Letitia Wright, Forest Whitaker, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis.
