There are some opinions about certain Marvel Cinematic Universe characters always wavers within their fan community. At least the consensus still holds that Black Panther was a watershed moment for Marvel’s movie franchise.
At the same time, some fans are starting to think the title character had more complexity in an earlier movie.
Yes, a new argument has evolved saying T’Challa had a more brooding quality about him in the Civil War than when seen in his starring movie later. Fans are wondering why he went from that to a different personality when seen within his homeland of Wakanda.
There may be logical explanations there based on the family circumstances he experienced during Black Panther. It may prove the correlation between emotion and the actions one takes.
The cool And mysterious T’Challa is what the audiences want
In his first appearance on the big screen, T’Challa was seen as an understated, mysterious figure who seemed sure-footed in every move he made. One particular line he uttered in the film was posted by Reddit fans.
That line was true warrior speak in standing up as a protector of Wakanda. It was dialogue from a true and thoughtful king, not including having a standout suit different from the one in Black Panther.
Reddit’s users were mostly in agreement this was the type of T’Challa they would rather see. Some were not happy to see T’Challa act so absentminded in his solo movie to a point where he made more mistakes than people expected of him.
Then again, when a viewer looks a little deeper into the personal circumstances of T’Challa at the time of Black Panther, it starts to make sense of how it might have affected the decisions he made.
All about T’Challa and what personally changed his nature from the hard to soft.
Above that, T’Challa’s mysterious qualities never had to manifest as much when in his homeland. Being a more brooding badass was only because he was hanging out with The Avengers and not sure about what their intentions were. Interacting within America also put him in a more guarded frame of mind.
At home in Wakanda, interacting with family and his fellow citizens made him look softer if just engulfed in conflicted feelings.
Going back and revisiting his father (T’Chaka) dying in that U.N. bomb blast during the Civil War is already haunting enough.
Having this carry over into Black Panther can explain every future action T’Challa took
Nevertheless, fans are still hoping the more badass side of T’Challa will show up again when the sequel arrives. Or, if he happens to show up in a future Avengers film during Phase Four.
