While introducing us to Ultron may have been the stand out scenery from the first trailer for ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ buried within were hints that we may be introduced to the Black Panther by the film’s end. Aside from knowing that Stan Lee has said that he would be getting his own film eventually, there are some teasers that prove he could be making his way to the big screen sooner than later.
So, what hints do we have about it? Well first off…
We see that Andy Serkis is going to be playing someone that isn’t just a motion capture character! By itself that would not be too big of a deal. However, you don’t think he’s going to be playing just anyone do you? While his look might not be too familiar, let’s mix it with the following image:
That’s the face of Ulysses Klaw who specifically works with sound and vibranium and is one of Black Panther’s villains. With some of the movie being filmed in South Africa, rumors of ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ taking place in an African Nation seems to give further credence to the idea that we’ll see some action taking place in Wakanda.
What else is there? Well, there is also a scene of Ultron being covered in some kind of metal:
Could this be during one of his phases of upgrades where he decides that being made out of the same material as Captain America’s shield is the way to go? Ultron has had many substances included in his body and since there might be a rights issue with Fox about using adamantium well, vibranium is a stronger material at any rate in the Marvel Universe so this just makes him a stronger villain that much quicker. And where is the only place vibranium can be found? That’s right! Wakanda (the home of Black Panther).
Now after seeing these hints, what are your thoughts on the odds of seeing Black Panther in ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’? Will he make an appearance in the film, the end credits, or just be hinted at for the future?
‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ is slated to hit theaters on May 1st, 2015.
