Marvel Didn’t Always Have Black Panther’s Character Rights
After years of waiting, Marvel has finally brought Black Panther onto the big screen. Directed by Ryan Coogler (Creed) and starring Chadwick Boseman as the eponymous superhero, Black Panther is poised to become one of Marvel Studios’ most critically and commercially successful releases ever (it’s holding a 98 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes).
With all the hype surrounding the movie, and given how important Wakanda is to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, people may wonder why it’s taken Marvel Studios so long to adopt the character in the first place. While that’s a long, multi-pronged answer, the simple version is: They didn’t always have the rights.
