‘In this movie, a lot like politics, it’s a little tricky to define who’s [a good guy]. The film very much plays with those concepts, looking at conflicts and different motivations, and who’s with who.’

40-year-old Boseman revealed that the T’Challa stand-alone film will revisit unresolved issues from last year’s Captain America: Civil War.

‘It [explores] his mourning process, his connection to why his father [T’Chaka] was killed, and feeling like he should have been able to do something about it,’ the South Carolina-born star explained.

‘All that ties into how he’s going to rule.’
