Move over, James Bond. There’s a new contender for the crown here.
At least, in the words of Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, there is. In a recent interview with Total Film, he said: “When I first started talking to Marvel, one thing they were interested in was for Panther to be their version of James Bond, which I thought was incredibly interesting and exciting.”
Excited might just be an understatement, considering how much hype the movie has generated. With the movie coming out less than a month away, fans cannot get enough news about it.
But there’s one lingering question: If King T’Challa is supposed to be Marvel’s Bond, who’s going to be Q?
That answer comes from Letitia Wright, who plays T’Challa’s sister, Shuri. Wright had this to say about that: “Yeah, why not? She’s T’Challa’s Q. She's by his side with the technology he needs. The way she helps him is really cool.”
