We have details of two deleted scenes that will show up on the Black Panther DVD and Blu-ray set.
Black Panther just crossed the magical billion dollar mark at the box office, which means it’s going to stay in theaters for a while. But it’s never to early to start thinking about when you might be able to own what might be Marvel’s best movie so far. And while we don’t have any hard details about things like a release date or assorted special features just yet, we do know one crucial detail: it will include deleted scenes.
The film’s editor, Michael Shawver revealed two deleted scenes, both of which will be included on the Black Panther DVD and Blu-ray release.
“Hands down the most painful scene to cut was [one] with Danai Gurira [General Okoye] and Daniel Kaluuya [W’Kabi],” Shawver told The Wrap. ““Toward the end, after things go bad and Killmonger [Michael B. Jordan] is in control and all that, we’re talking about, what are they going to do? What is Wakanda going to become? Those are two powerhouse actors and it was an incredible scene with so many layers to it.”
He also detailed a scene between T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) and Zuri (Forrest Whittaker) that better illustrated their “father-son relationship.”
Maybe we’ll learn of some other deleted scenes as we get closer to release.
Speaking of which, when will the Black Panther DVD & Blu-ray arrive?
Black Panther DVD and Blu-ray Release Date
There’s no release date currently set for the Black Panther DVD or Blu-ray, but we can speculate a little. Spider-Man: Homecoming opened in June and arrived in October. Thor: Ragnarok opened in November and arrived on home media in March. So with that four month window in mind, it’s safe to speculate that the Black Panther DVD will drop in June. In the meantime, you can pre-order the digital home release here.
