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.

We’d previously heard early rumors that a major player will die in Captain America: Civil War (a rumor we won’t repeat here) — you can’t really have a Civil War without major stakes, so that’s not terribly surprising. Today’s latest rumor suggests that at least one other Marvel character will perish in the upcoming film, which pits Captain America against Iron Man and forces the Avengers to choose a side.

Ultimates_feat

Of all the books announced by Marvel during this week's big All-New, All-Different unveiling, one of the surprise titles that generated the most buzz was Ultimates, by Al Ewing and Kenneth Rocafort. Though the name echoes back to the Ultimate Universe version of the Avengers, this is a very different team, comprised of some of the Marvel Universe's major powerhouses and most brilliant minds as they tackle cosmic threats on the scale of... well, Galactus.

ComicsAlliance spoke to Ewing to learn about the big idea behind this big team and the sort of threats they'll be facing, and to discover what drew him to put characters like Black Panther, Captain Marvel and America Chavez on one team --- besides the fact that they're all obviously the best characters.

wakanda-feat

Some called this Black Sci-Fi, but this fiction is perhaps more commonly called Afrofuturism.
