Some may have rooted for the star-spangled superhero, while others were team Iron Man while watching Captain America: Civil War. Other Marvel fans may have chosen to be like Black Panther in the film and stay neutral.
If Black Panther is one of your favorite superheroes, you are going to be pleased to hear that you will be seeing a lot more of him in Marvel's gaming portfolio.
Marvel announced on Wednesday that a Civil War-inspired version of Black Panther will be joining the cast of a few mobile games and one for PC.
Marvel decided to release this new version of Black Panther from the recent movie to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the character's debut.
"Through his breakout debut in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, the excitement surrounding Black Panther has reached a world-wide fever pitch," Marvel Games creative director Bill Rosemann said in a press release. "Marvel Games is proud to join the 50th Anniversary celebration of Black Panther by allowing gamers to become the brilliant King of Wakanda, using his razor-sharp claws and mind to battle evil."
The Civil War Black Panther is launching in several titles that include:
• Marvel Contest of Champions: the free-to-play mobile fighting game that puts characters like Iron Man vs. Captain America for iOS and Android, developed and published by Kabam.
• Marvel Avengers Alliance 2: the turn-based social game where gamers assemble a team to take on the enemy, available for iOS and Android, developed by Offbeat Creations and published by Playdom.
Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Black Panther made his first appearance in July 1966 in Fantastic Four #62, and is known for being the first black superhero in mainstream American comics. The superhero also stars in the new best-selling comic book series written by acclaimed author Ta-Nehisi Coates.
From the pages of the comics, to the big screen and now our mobile screen, fans of all ages will be able to play as the iconic character.
Black Panther (played by Chadwick Boseman) will star in his own movie that is slated for July 6, 2018.
