Upcoming Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ Said to Pay Homage to ‘The Godfather’ and ‘007’ Films [Hype]

Marvel’s upcoming Black Panther film is on the way and Ryan Coogler, who also directed Fruitvale Station and Creed, will be handling this one on the director’s chair. Now according to the film’s executive producer Nate Moore, Black Panther will pay respect to two unforgettable film legacies: The Godfather and 007 as you’ll find hints of the New York family crime film thanks to Black Panther’s emphasis on the importance of those closest to you. Homage to the classic spy movie will be seen as the Marvel film’s protagonist won’t kill for fun, but kill to defend his nation of Wakanda. Moore also expresses Black Panther to Entertainment Weekly as ”a big, operatic family drama centered on a world of international espionage. So hopefully we’re getting the best of both worlds.”
