Marvel’s Black Panther was the last piece of the puzzle leading to the Avengers: The Infinity Stones but Ryan Coogler believes that he wanted the movie to stand out on its own. Black Panther has had profound success at the box office.In many ways the movie goes above and beyond expectations and was released at the right time in a politically charged climate.
Black Panther made his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War. The acrobatics of our Wakanda super hero were quite spectacular. Moreover, the overall costume and weapons also impressed the audience. Due to the massive affection gained by fans, they might be eager to see the second coming of Black Panther translating into robust sales of cinema tickets. On the contrary another reason for the remarkable success could be Black Panther being a final link to the last installment of the Avengers.
Ryan Coogler has revealed that he wanted Black Panther to develop its own fan following rather than depend on Avengers. There were rumors that the last infinity stone the soul stone would be shown in this movie but Ryan Coogler wanted to focus more on Black Panther’s Wakandian related heritage
As reported by IGN, Coogler regarding the issue said that “I love the Infinity Stones as much as any comic book fan, it’s just Wakanda already has its thing, which is Vibranium. For us, that was special enough, so to throw in something like another special thing didn’t feel right. It felt like we should stick with our one MacGuffin for the country and explore that, let that be the important thing because, frankly we didn’t need to have another piece like that,” Coogler explained, adding, “[Marvel Studios] never really was interested in putting a stone in there, either.
This latest development means that the soul stone will make its appearance in the Avengers: Infinity Wars. With many speculating that Heimdall is the holder of the last stone, but for the time being it remains to be seen where the last stone is found.
