Over the last couple of weeks there have been people attempting to spread a rumor that Black Panther would be appearing in Captain Marvel. The rumor originates from T’Challa’s father T’Chaka appearing in the 1992 flashback in Black Panther this year, and since Captain Marvel is set in the 90s I guess it made sense for the person to put the two together. Unfortunately, Kevin Feige shot down that theory already.
Back in March, Feige spoke to Cinemablend and they asked him about expanding the 90s MCU by having T’Chaka in 1992 meeting Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel he said this:
“I would say no. I mean, in terms of Captain Marvel and a young T’Chaka in ’92, no. That’s not where we’re headed. “
He didn’t shoot down expanding on the history of Wakanda in the future, and hinted that we may see some of the past Black Panthers in the MCU at some point:
“But we would talk about the ancestral plane sequence [in Black Panther] where, towards the end of the movie, T’Challa takes the herb again and encounters his father, where he’s like, “Hey, man. We’ve kind of screwed up, and I want to change it.” There’s that moment where all of the ancestors come behind T’Chaka. We would joke and go, “I want to see … what’s their story? What’s that story? Who was Bashenga, the first king of Wakanda? Who’s that third to the left, behind T’Chaka? What was their story in Wakanda in 1938?”
There are a lot of options as to how that could play out. With time travel likely being introduced in Avengers 4, there will be all sorts of opportunities to see other Black Panthers in the MCU. But according to the head of Marvel Studios, it won’t be in Captain Marvel.
