"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - 'Black Panther'

Further to Marvel Studios filming certain sequences of "The Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age Of Ultron", in Cape Town, South Africa, reports continue to surface that Marvel Comics' superhero 'T-Challa' aka 'Black Panther' (Chadwick Boseman) is introduced in the new film:

"The Avengers: Age of Ultron" production hired 'extras' for a location shoot in Cape Town.

"Filming in South Africa provides the 'Avengers' an opportunity to seek out 'T'Challa' aka 'Black Panther'...

"...whose homeland of 'Wakanda' exports 'vibranium', a metal alloy coveted by 'Ultron'...

"...that was compounded with 'adamantium' to make Captain America's original triangular shield. 

"The disc-shaped shield currently used by Cap is made of pure vibranium..."

Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and illustrator-co-plotter Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics, 'Black Panther' debuted in "Fantastic Four" #52 (July 1966), as the first black superhero in mainstream comics.

As king of Wakanda, the Panther has access to a vast collection of magical artifacts, advanced Wakandan technological and military hardware, as well as the support of his nation's wide array of scientists, warriors and mystics.

He is also a skilled hunter, tracker, strategist, politician, inventor and scientist, with a Ph.D. in Physics from Oxford University.
