Comicbook.com spoke with Black Panther executive producer Nate Moore about knowing how Infinity War was going to affect the world of Black Panther while working on the standalone film.

I'm not saying it can't happen (the movie has defied all expectations at every turn) I just don't think it will. The filmmakers will also use IMAX cameras to shoot the entirety of the next Avengers film, which is slated for release in May 2019.
