Marvel is taking another big step to expand their Cinematic Universe in 2018 with Black Panther. Not only is the film the studio’s first with a black superhero lead, and not only do black actors make up the majority of the ensemble, but it’s also their first film to enlist the efforts of a popular musician to produce the soundtrack. That’s right: Gone are the days of the generic, unremarkable Marvel film score, as Black Panther (hopefully) sets a new precedent for the MCU’s soundtracks.
One of the underrated aspects of Marvel’s cinematic universe is its overabundance of good characters. Take Hayley Atwell’s Agent Carter, for example. Most other major movie franchises would jump at the opportunity to have a character as beloved as Peggy Carter; for Marvel, fairly or unfairly, she’s a character they can afford to leave behind. That is, until it was announced that Captain Marvel would take place sometime in the 1990s, opening the door for Atwell’s Carter to appear once more in the MCU. Would she be interested in coming back to play the character? You’d better believe it.
