Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, were sure that “Black Panther” was more than just movie when the trailer debuted at Cinemacon last year to crowds cheering. He realised that “we were doing something that people had been waiting their entire lives to see,” states Feige, who admired onscreen heroes such as Luke Skywalker. “That was something that a white male that grew up in the United States can take for granted. And you don’t take that for granted anymore. Everyone deserves to see themselves reflected on that silver screen and the inspiration that comes from it.”

“Black Panther” is all set to shatter box office records as the first comic-book tentpole with a primarily black cast (starring Chadwick Boseman as the title character) and director (Ryan Coogler). Feige spoke to Variety about the latest Marvel film.

Wesley Snipes had decided to make a Black Panther movie in the early ’90s. What took so long?
I don’t know. This is the 10-year anniversary of Marvel Studios, starting with “Iron Man.” I’ll speak starting in 2008. For us, we were building the Avengers. That took up the first five years. And as audiences continued to come, we got to tell more of these stories and we got to a point where we were developing “Captain America: Civil War.” We had an opportunity to introduce a character that had no allegiance to either Iron Man or Captain America and that clearly was Black Panther, who has his own agenda, agency, country, and culture. And he found himself thrust into the world of the Avengers. That became, for us, lighting the wick on the beginning of bringing Panther to the world and casting Chadwick and soon after that, hiring Ryan Coogler. I’m very glad this movie wasn’t made in 1992 because Ryan Coogler might not have been born.

Did you always know there would be a Black Panther movie?
We always knew we wanted to do it someday. We always knew it was the manifest destiny of Marvel Studios to bring to life all facets of the Marvel universe. At the end of “Iron Man 2,” when Nick Fury is discussing for the first time the Avengers initiative with Tony Stark, he’s brought him to this secret shield warehouse. One of the maps prominently displayed is a map of Africa with a little pinpoint to where Wakanda is. In “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” we talked about Vibranium for the first time and Bruce Banner mispronounces Wakanda. We’ve been feeding it through the films, knowing if we had the opportunity to keep making films, Panther was high on the list. It was his inclusion in “Civil War” that sped it up.

Fans are hoping to have Ryan Coogler comes back to direct a sequel.
