After a massively popular introduction in Captain America: Civil War, Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther will have a larger presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward. Not only will the character appear in his first ever solo movie when Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther lands, but Boseman will also have a large role in the next Avengers movie, Avengers: Infinity War.
In an interview with Moviefone, Boseman briefly discussed his role in Avengers: Infinity War, confirming that he will have a “vital” role in the movie.
It’s a vital role — definitely a vital role! And I think Mark Ruffalo. Ruffalo is the main person that I felt like we hit it off and had fun, and I hadn’t worked with him before. In fact, when I met him, it felt like I had already met him. That would be the name I’ll say. I can’t say more than that.
While it’s not surprising to hear that Boseman will have a larger role in Avengers: Infinity War, it’s certainly a relief. It has previously been reported that Spider-Man will only have a brief appearance in the film, and it would be unfortunate if Black Panther’s role was also reduced.
