Screencap Reveals Black Panther’s Cinematic Backstory!


The text reads:

“Ulysses Klaue was an assassin hired to take down T’Chaka at the Bilderberg conference in the case that he refused to negotiate Wakanda’s resources including Vibranium. But, Klaue was also there personally, as the Panther killed his great-grandfather in the 19th century while this one was trying to annex Wakanda. He was paid ten million dollars for the kill.”

This confirms that the Reginald Hudlin version of Klaue is being used for the movie. Back during Hudlin’s opening arc “Who is the Black Panther”, The new “modern” backstory was established where King T’chaka is assassinated by Ulysses Klaue  at the behest of the Bilderberg group. In the Hudlin original Klaue’s ancestor gets flash evaporated by Wakanda‘s advanced tech while he tried to invade the land with a handful of soldiers during the time of slavery [See Black Panther #1 for details]. thus in the present Klaue not only kills T’chaka for the money but also for revenge.

Other details revealed by this screencap are that T’Chaka was assassinated at the Bilderberg conference. What the hell is that? Well:

The Bilderberg conference is an annual private gathering of approximately 120-150 political leaders and experts from various industries.

In the comics T’Chaka shuts down the group in an epic way!

I understand your frustration in dealing with a black man who can’t be bought with a truck full of guns, a plane lead of blonde, and a Swiss bank account. But hold on to what little class you have. T’Chaka to the Bilderberg Conference

This comes up after T’chaka was unwilling to negotiate Wakanda’s precious resources, notably Vibranium [See Black Panther #1 for details]. The report also states that Klaue was paid $10 million to kill the leader. Color me excited by the new details ahead of Black Panther/T’challa’s debut next year in Captain America: Civil War.

    Thank you for posting this.
    I am happy that the movie script apparently appreciates the source material and is cleaving close to it as they present our fave character
    For the first time I am starting to feel positive and hopeful about the way the Panther will be depicted in the this project and is understood by the people in charge

    I’m excited about them using some of Hudlin’s animated series for the movie! In fact, If they ultimately stick to his rendition of The Black Panther story I believe that all of the comic readers of color will be ecstatic especially if they include T’Chaka kicking Cap’s ass and T’Challa’s romance with Storm. Hhmmmm, come to think of it that might be what’s needed to bring about a strong demand for getting them back together in the comic book world! What do y’all think?

    Let us pray; god please dont let hollywood destroy the story of our most cherished Black hero in comics! we humbly ask that you dont allow them to cast light skinned pretty boy singers and actors as any african characters,we ask that you don’t allow them to cast a white guy as his computer geek or scrappy little save they day best friend or behind the scenes confidante who saves his life,we ask that he not be swayed by the skinny blonde white girl who can kick every bodies ass,and we ask that you prevent them from adding the gay guy or coon side kick. Last but not least please don’t let Samuel L. Jackson wind up as two characters!If there is a role to be filled as his family please be Adewale for T’Chaka,please be Adewale for T’Chaka, please be Adewale for T’Chaka,please be Adewale for T’Chaka,please be Wesley for S’yan,please be Wesley for S’yan…SAY IT WITH ME!!!..please be Wesley for S’yan………..LET THE CHURCH SAY AAAAAMEN.
