Nate Moore says Black Panther is a standalone movie

Nate Moore has revealed the upcoming ‘Black Panther’ movie doesn’t rely on current plot points in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Nate Moore revealed ‘Black Panther’ doesn’t rely on other “plot points in the Marvel Cinematic Universe”.

The Marvel Studios producer – who has previously worked on ‘Captain America: The Winter Solider’ and ‘Captain America: Civil ‘ – has teamed up with filmmaker Ryan Coogler for the upcoming ‘Black Panther’ movie, but despite the character appearing in ‘Civil ‘, Moore admitted the film can be seen as just a “stand alone” movie.

Hundreds of students were invited from Morehouse, Spelman and CAU to see the third installment of the “Captain American” franchise and the first film in phase 3 of the Marvel cinematic universe.

Speaking to ScreenRant.com, Moore said: “I think it’s inherently linked because of ‘Civil ‘ 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 storytelling that it could stand alone beyond those things.

“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.”

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

The motion picture is expected to expand on the storyline that was first introduced in ‘Civil ‘ of how T’Challa – played by Chadwick Boseman – becomes the superhero.

Captain America: Civil ” also introduces two new characters— Don Cheadle as Colonel James Rhodes/Machine and Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther. For Marvel fans, this appearance by Black Panther is preparation for his own film franchise which debuts in 2018 and will be directed by Creed‘s Ryan Coogler .

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 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 – who are both reprising their roles as Everett K. Ross and Ulysses Klaue respectively in the new film.
