Needless to say, the following contains spoilers for Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. Stop reading now if you'd like to go into the upcoming blockbuster knowing next to nothing.
Last year, when we visited the set of Joe and Anthony Russo's Avengers: Infinity War and spoke with Mark Ruffalo and Chadwick Boseman, the duo made jokes about how Black Panther and his Dora Milaje would react to the Avengers being in Wakanda. The mood, according to Ruffalo, was a "there goes the neighborhood" type of vibe, even though Earth's mightiest heroes were coming to T'Challa's backyard to help defend our planet against its single greatest threat, Thanos (Josh Brolin). In our exclusive interview with Black Panther co-star Danai Gurira, she backed up Boseman's concerns about the Avengers coming to Wakanda, playfully explaining to CinemaBlend:
At the time of our interview with Danai Gurira on the set of Avengers: Infinity War, we hadn't yet see Ryan Coogler's Black Panther, so we were unaware how the arrival of Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) would disrupt the balance in Wakanda and force a difficult discussion about opening up the airtight borders that contain the unique and valuable African nation. Now, however, at the tail end of Black Panther, T'Challa and Shuri have opened up the nation of Wakanda to the world, but as Okoye realizes, this just opens the nation up to escalating threats.
Thanos is going to be a threat. See how he bring pains and suffering in the latest Avengers: Infinity War trailer:
