Agent Ross Gives T’Challa A Warning In Black Panther Deleted Scene


” I will hold you to that, Everett.”

On the heels of Tuesday’s raw, deeply emotional exchange between Okoye (Danai Gurira) and W’Kabi (Daniel Kaluuya), Marvel Studios has now summoned another Black Panther deleted scene. And this one puts the focus squarely on King T’Challa and Martin Freeman’s Agent Ross, who have a little run-in at the UN, right before the titular hero is about to reveal Wakanda to the world.

Ross tries to warn T’Challa that it may not be the best idea to go ahead with his plan. “Listen, it’s not my place to say — but man, I really don’t think you should do this. What you guys have is gonna scare a lot of people in that room. They’re gonna come after you,” says the CIA agent. “Yes. But I will no longer rule out of fear. Not ours or anyone else’s,” replies Chadwick Boseman’s fearless leader. It’s a brief exchange, but a welcome bit of footage nonetheless, especially the laughs that come from the end.

Pegged for a home video release on May 15th, the Black Panther Blu-ray is full of extras and special features, including a director’s intro from none other than Ryan Coogler himself. He’s said to be negotiating with Marvel Studios over the possibility of helming the all-but-inevitable Black Panther sequel, but it would seem Kevin Feige and Co. are willing to wait until such time as Coogler is ready to return at the helm.

Via Marvel, here’s what to expect from the Blu-ray.

– Director’s Intro
– From Page to Screen: A Roundtable Discussion – Delve into the film’s making
– Crowning of a New King – Explore the world of “Black Panther” in all its color and complexity
– The Warriors Within – Get to know Wakanda’s women and the actors who portray them
– The Hidden Kingdom Revealed – Wakanda’s diverse people
– Wakanda Revealed: Exploring the Technology
– Deleted Scenes
– Gag Reel

– Marvel Studios the First Ten Years: Connecting the Universe
– Director’s Commentary

Following its digital debut on May 8th, Marvel’s Black Panther will claw its way onto Blu-ray and DVD on May 15th. Which means you won’t have to wait until Avengers 4 (or Ryan Coogler’s gestating sequel!) to revisit Wakanda…
