Wakanda, the fictional African nation that Black Panther/T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) will call home in the MCU, was supposed to appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the scene was deleted.

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, the maniacal robot known as Ultron heads to Africa to score some Vibranium. Originally, Ultron was going to go Wakanda to get the super-strong, precious metal, but instead director Joss Whedon chose to have him purchase it from Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) at South African shipyard.

When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) jump-starts a dormant peacekeeping program, things go terribly awry, forcing him, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and the rest of the Avengers to reassemble. As the fate of Earth hangs in the balance, the team is put to the ultimate test as they battle Ultron, a technological terror hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they encounter two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff.
