Rumor: Why Black Panther is After Winter Soldier in Civil War

Winter Soldier Black Panther Civil War

There’s a new rumor that Black Panther is after Winter Soldier in Captain America: Civil War, and the reason may be easy to figure out.

The rumor comes from an Instagram post by Heroic Hollywood that says:

In #CaptainAmerica #CivilWar, the #BlackPanther is on the hunt for #TheWinterSoldier. Can you guess why?

This could be an easy guess, and that is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe the Winter Soldier kills T’Chaka, Black Panther’s father. The Winter Soldier is also responsible for the deaths of Tony Stark’s parents, and this could put T’Challa on the side of Stark in Civil War.

In the comics, Ulysses Klaw (now Ulysses Klaue in the movies) killed Black Panther’s father while stealing Adamantium (Vibranium in the MCU) from Wakanda. Changing it to Winter Soldier in the movies would be a big change, but one that fits with how they’re using Bucky and would work for putting Black Panther on Iron Man’s side in Civil War.
