And that’s a wrap…for now. Captain America: Civil War has completed principal filming, and now the post-production process (and our long march to next May) begins. The film shot primarily at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, with additional filming taking place in Berlin (hello, Baron Zemo) and Puerto Rico. The news was delivered by Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito, while additional, supplementary filming will likely occur sometime over the next few months or so.
Spider-Man isn’t the only character making his (rebooted) debut in Captain America: Civil War. Lest you forget, Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther will be putting in an appearance ahead of his own solo movie. Last year’s promotional photo from Marvel gave us a sneak peek at the character’s appearance, but a new spy photo from the set gives us a better idea of what Boseman’s superhero will look like.

With Chadwick Boseman set to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the currently-filming Captain America: Civil War, we should be hearing about the director of the solo Black Panther film soon enough. While we’re still fired up over the possibility of Selma’s Ava DuVernay possibly taking the gig, another very interesting name has entered the fray.
When an actor signs on to play a superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they typically aren’t signing up for a single movie. They’re signing up for a whole bunch — sometimes as many as nine films — so Marvel can plan ahead for years, scoping out where a character can go over the course of several appearances. But contracts run out and some actors managed to finagle their way in without signing up for a bunch of movies in advance. So superhero movie fans always wonder just how many more times they’ll get to see Chris Evans play Captain America or Robert Downey Jr. play Iron Man. How many movies are left on their contract? What’s next?
Although the Black Panther movie isn’t slated to hit theaters until July 6, 2018, the character will make his first appearance in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, where he will be played by Chadwick Boseman. And it looks like we may get a glimpse at some of the African superhero’s family as well. New internet buzz suggests that Ernie Hudson may take on the role of Black Panther’s father, King T‘Chaka.
Even though the upcoming third ‘Captain America’ movie is based on Marvel’s ‘Civil War’ mini-series, where the heroes of the Marvel Universe faced off with one another in a battle over their right to privacy, the ‘Civil War’ film still needs a villain for Chris Evans’ Cap and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man (and new addition Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman) to face off with as well. Although they didn’t reveal the identity of his character, Deadline reports that Daniel Bruhl will play the guy to pester the feuding Avengers.

From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, an Oscar nominee is targeted for the new Joker, Marvel reveals 'Ant-Man' snippets, and a dead 'Spider-Man' character may return.
At last week's big Marvel event, there were lots of things to be excited about, but the two biggest revelations were undoubtedly 'Captain Marvel' and 'Black Panther,' with the studio giving us a solo female superhero film and a film featuring a black superhero -- the latter to be played by Chadwick Boseman, who will hit the screen in 'Captain America: Civil War.' Boseman has been laying low since, but now he's making the rounds and speaking out about his recent casting. And although it's still years away, he promises that we haven't seen anything like what Marvel has in store with 'Black Panther.'
As part of Marvel's secret event today that announced pretty much all of Phase 3, the studio announced their first black superhero movie, 'Black Panther.' And, while everyone was expecting Benedict Cumberbatch to walk on stage to confirm his casting in 'Doctor Strange' it was actually '42' star Chadwick Boseman who surprised the crowd by appearing with Kevin Feige to announce his role as T'Challa.
