Although his stint as Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was tragically interrupted by colon cancer, actor Chadwick Boseman portrayed the role of T’Challa so well that it’s hard to imagine that someone else is providing the voice for the character. Although initially reluctant, Christopher Judge, Star gate alum and the voice of God of the war‘s Kratos, took on the role of Marvel Avengers prochain DLC Black Panther.

the War for Wakanda extension for Marvel Avengers adds a whole new chapter to the superhero epic of Crystal Dynamics, transporting players to the jungles surrounding the hidden tech paradise of Wakanda.

“I immediately turned it down,” Judge told Entertainment Weekly, discussing the first time he was approached for the role. “There are a lot of Black Panthers, but I really didn’t think anyone should ever do T’Challa again. [after Boseman]. The actual talks continued and basically I ended up doing it because my mom and kids said if I didn’t they would disown me.

Behind the scenes of the main game, T’Challa was negotiating to open his country’s borders with Captain America, but AIM’s devastating attack on San Francisco and Cap’s apparent death caused the country to shut down once in a while. more. Years later, when AIM sends Klaw to try and steal Wakanda’s vibranium, T’Challa has no choice but to step into the fray again.

Former Kotaku and io9 writer and The ascent of the black pantheonComic book author Evan Narcisse is the narrative consultant for the game. “I want to double down on the idea that this is his own iteration of the Black Panther myth,” Narcisse said, speaking to THAT ONE. “Even if you know the comics and can quote the film by heart, there will always be surprises. “

Christopher Judge, Evan Narcisse et Marvel Avengers Storyteller Hannah McLeod to talk more about the emotionally charged experience of bringing Black Panther to the game in a special Twitch stream hosted by Crystal Dynamics Friday at 1 p.m. EST.
