One of the upcoming entries to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that people are most looking forward to is the Chadwick Boseman-led flick, 'Black Panther'. Taking on the titular role in the film, otherwise known as T'Challa, Boseman will become the first person of colour to lead a solo movie within the superhero genre; something that's been a long time coming.

With that comes a lot of lofty expectations and responsibility for Boseman. Fortunately, he's somebody who has thought about how everything he and the team around the movie brings to the big screen and how it will be interpreted, and that's what he's been speaking about in a recent interview.

Taking place in the Kingdom of Wakanda; a small nation in North East Africa which has utilised technology to a degree like no other nation on the planet, the setting will not only affect the sort of people viewers are introduced to there, but how they act and even how they speak. This was one of the most important things for Boseman to muse over in his approach to tackling his role.

Speaking with Cnet, the actor explained: "People think about how race has affected the world. It’s not just in the States. Colonialism is the cousin of slavery. Colonialism in Africa would have it that, in order to be a ruler, his education comes from Europe. I wanted to be completely sure that we didn’t convey that idea because that would be counter to everything that Wakanda is about. It’s supposed to be the most technologically advanced nation on the planet. If it’s supposed to not have been conquered — which means that advancement has happened without colonialism tainting it, poisoning the well of it, without stopping it or disrupting it — then there’s no way he would speak with a European accent.

"If I did that, I would be conveying a white supremacist idea of what being educated is and what being royal or presidential is. Because it’s not just about him running around fighting. He’s the ruler of a nation. And if he’s the ruler of a nation, he has to speak to his people. He has to galvanise his people. And there’s no way I could speak to my people, who have never been conquered by Europeans, with a European voice."

In Wakanda, it would seem that peace has been found. Boseman went on to add that it's a location "where spirituality and science do not war with each other," teasing that Marvel fans will have to open their minds more than ever before to see the setting as a believable one, and a utopia that many would strive towards in a bid for a peaceful existence.

Of course, that utopia is being threatened in 'Black Panther', and is something T'Challa is going to have to go up against as he takes to the throne, ruling over the kingdom and protecting all those who live under his rule. We can't wait to see just where the story goes and in which direction it takes the MCU on a larger scale.
