WATCH: Chadwick Boseman gets asked about the Black Panther rumor

April 15th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

It’s been rumored for quite a while that 42 and Draft Day star Chadwick Boseman may be up for the role of Black Panther. While on the red carpet for Draft Day he was asked about the rumor he got a huge revealing smile on his face.

Now a Black Panther film hasn’t even been confirmed yet, but that grin seems to pretty much confirm that there’s at least been some talks, and maybe he even has the role but can’t say. Paul Rudd anyone?

Either way watch the video below and judge for yourself whether we’re seeing the king of Wakanda.

The question is at the 3:35 mark.
