‘Black Panther’ Director Ryan Coogler Explains Why Bucky Was Missing In The Film

Letitia Wright as Shuri In Black Panther

When Captain America: Civil War ended, fans got to see what happened to Bucky (Sebastian Stan). With the help of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Captain America (Chris Evans), and Bucky were granted refuge for their acts against the Sokovia Accords. In order to protect Wakanda and himself, Bucky willingly asked to be put in a cryogenic sleep. At the time, it was unclear if he would ever wake up. Then the Avengers: Infinity War trailer came out and we saw him, along with his fellow Avengers, charging towards an unknown enemy. So that led to some speculation that we would at least see him in some sort of capacity in Black Panther.

Well, he wasn’t in it, at least not until the very end. So, what is with his absence? In a new interview with director Ryan Coogler, the filmmaker talks about the Winter Soldier’s absence. There are some spoilers, but if you have already seen the film or are just interested in knowing, find out what he had to say below.

Wakanda In Marvel's Black Panther

You could file this under too funny to be true, if it wasn’t very much true. As much as we would like Black Panther‘s Wakanda to be a real nation, it isn’t. But the name does share its pronunciation with the real-life Wauconda, Illinois, which, as of now, is a bit unfortunate.

That’s because some fans have decided to contact the town mayor’s office asking about things like the fictional metal vibranium. This may be hilarious for us on the outside, but it is creating a bit of trouble for those who live in Wauconda. More on the story below.

Black Panther Director Ryan Coogler

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther continues to perform beyond our expectations at the box office.

Marvel’s 18th film is able to tell a beautiful story that uses social issues as themes, and it still remembers that it is a superhero film. So it weaves in those real-world themes with some fantastic comic book sequences. All of that coming from the young Ryan Coogler, who made his directorial debut with the Sundance drama Fruitvale Station and then followed it up with the compelling Creed. Black Panther is Coogler’s third directing effort, and he shows no signs of slowing down.

In light of the film’s success, one would think that it would inflate a filmmaker’s ego. But not Coogler. The director expressed his gratitude to the fans helping make Black Panther a huge success. Read the letter below.

Marvel Studios Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther

One thing I forgot to mention in my review of Marvel’ Black Panther – something I regret not putting in – is the fact that the music is an excellent complement to the superhero film. Produced by Kendrick Lamar, the soundtrack is easily one of the most anticipated Marvel soundtracks to date. Probably because it’s one of the few that is worthwhile.

So if you want to take a listen, then I suggest you check out the Spotify embed here below for clips; the full soundtrack is streaming through the Spotify app.

Marvel Studios' Black Panther

Black Panther
Director: Ryan Coogler

Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 134 Minutes

Never has a superhero film done more for culture, identity, and representation than Black Panther. Director Ryan Coogler’s standout Marvel film forgoes the traditional superhero blockbuster and gives us a redefined blockbuster that subverts all preconceived notions of what a superhero film should be. By emphasizing on the often overlooked themes like culture, identity, and representation, the film finally gives a loud voice to those who would otherwise be supporting or background characters. What we get is an impressive superhero film that is unique and special.

Black Panther is by far the most political Marvel film to date, and by exploring those aforementioned themes it allows it to stand on its own. By drawing its inspiration from films like James Bond and shows like Game of Thrones, this is a superhero film unlike any other that will leave audiences speechless. Check out the full review below.

‘Black Panther’ On Empowering Its Complex and Fearless Female Cast

Black Panther Okoye and Nakia

While the title of Marvel Studios’ upcoming film is Black Panther, the female cast members are really the standout characters of the film. All have their roles to play, but none of them adhere to the tired old tropes of what a female character is supposed to be in a superhero film. Because in Wakanda, the female characters are celebrated as queens, spies, bodyguards, and inventors. And trust me when I say this, the women of Wakanda are people you do not want to fight. Marvel fans got to see a glimpse of them in Captain America: Civil War where Ayo stepped in front of Black Widow and threatened to forcibly remove her if she did not get out of T’Challa’s way.

Now we get to see more of that fearlessness in Black Panther. The film has not one, not two, not three, but four powerful female characters who are ready to step up and fight to protect and for honor. We had a chance to sit down with our fellow journalists during the film’s press junket where Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Angela Bassett (Ramonda), and Letitia Wright (Shuri) shared their thoughts on working with director Ryan Coogler on the film, and how it paved the way for more representation and culture to play a role in a film. Check out what they had to say here below.

How Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ Takes A Step Forward For Representation

Black Panther

In Marvel Studios’ decade-long run, 17 successful blockbusters have featured a white character as the lead. However, Captain America: Civil War was the first small baby step in the right direction when it introduced Black Panther into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The events of that film would lead up to the Wakandian king’s standalone film, Black Panther.

But Black Panther is so much more than the title character’s first standalone film. It represents what a superhero means to a person of color. Representation matters, and as we move towards a brighter future, Marvel Studios will have more and more films that are a reflection of today’s society. That’s why Black Panther is such an important film.

We had the chance to sit down with the cast and creators Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa), Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Michael B. Jordan (“Erik Killmonger), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Angela Bassett (Ramonda), Forest Whitaker (Zuri), Andy Serkis (Ulysses Klaue), Martin Freeman (Everett K Ross), Daniel Kaluuya (W’Kabi), Winston Duke (M’Baku), Letitia Wright (Shuri), director Ryan Coogler and producer Kevin Feige to talk about the importance of Black Panther, what making this MCU installment meant to them, and what they hope the film accomplishes. Check out what they had to say here below.
