Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has shed more light on the Captain America: Civil War mid-credits scene that featured an emotional moment between Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers. The scene also introduced King T'Challa aka Black Panther.
Warning: Spoiler Ahead
According to a report in Cinema Blend, the mid-credits scene goes like this — Bucky's memories have returned, but he knows that uttering a few random words can transform him back into a deadly assassin aka Winter Soldier. Rogers makes his decision and says his goodbyes before his best friend is put back into the deep freeze.
Then the scene is set in an advanced laboratory, where Steve is standing next to King T'Challa aka Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman). Cap thanks T'Challa for his help and also warns him that they will come after him to get to Bucky. T'Challa says with pride, "Let them try," as the scene ends with Wakanda's iconic Black Panther statue out in the distance.
Kevin Feige spoke about the mid-credits scene and revealed that it was planned to be used at the end of the movie. He said, "That was always sort of the idea for the end of the movie, and as the movie was being developed, it felt like it would be additionally cool to have that happen in Wakanda — a super advanced place."
"They've got something that he could go in. And also, it speaks to Panther's arc. The person that he was out to kill early in the movie, he's now nobly helping. And then, of course, that led organically to a cool moment, where Cap can go, 'Thanks for doing this, but they're going to come get you.'" Feige said.
Captain America Civil War is currently running in theatres.
