‘Age of Ultron’ Easter Egg Reveals ‘Black Panther’ Tie-in

Two bonus feature clips aren’t the only thing to watch out for in Avengers: Age of Ultron Blu-Ray / DVD release. 

[dropcap size=small]J[/dropcap]ust when you thought Avengers: Age of Ultron couldn’t get any better, Marvel Studios has announced two bonus feature clips with the movie’s release to Blu-Ray and DVD on September 8, 2015. The clips include interviews with James Spader (Ultron), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), and Aaron Talyor-Johnson (Quicksilver).

But wait, there’s more! An avid MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) fan posted a high-quality screencap of a file that can be seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and was able to transcribe the text.



“Ulysses Klaue was an assassin hired to take down T’Chaka at the Bilderberg conference in the case that he refused to negotiate Wakanda’s resources including Vibranium. But, Klaue was also there personally, as the Panther killed his great-grandfather in the 19th century while this one was trying to annex Wakanda. He was paid ten million dollars for the kill.” MCU Fanpage

For those of you who are unsure of who Ulysses Klaue is, and how the Black Panther is tied into his story, here’s a little recap. Wakanda is a little country with a very valuable resource – Vibranium. Like the rulers before him, King T’Chaka assumed the role of Panther, the protector of the country and it’s resources. After the outside world discovered Vibranium, and how rare it is, T’Chaka held firm to his ancestral beliefs that Wakanda should never be exploited for its resources, and refused to negotiate any trade. As the file states, Ulysses Klaue was sent to assassinate T’Chaka, and in the process was injured by T’Chaka’s son and heir, T’Challa. In the Marvel Comics, Klaue is successful in his assassination, but T’Challa was able to smash Klaue’s right hand, thus binding the two in a lifelong rivalry. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is unknown if Klaue was successful in his mission, but you better believe the answer will be revealed in Captain America: Civil War.

Chadwick Bosem is set to make his Black Panther MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War, the release of which is set for May 6, 2016. It is unknown at this time how much of the Black Panther’s story will be told in the newest Avengers saga, but rest assured that his story will be heard. The Black Panther is set to headline his own solo film due July 6, 2018. 

With so much time before the Black Panther’s movie, I can only assume that Marvel will continue to drop little Easter eggs, if only as teasers for the next cinematic hit!
