Black Panther may have found a director…

December 5th, 2015 by Marc Comments


With everyone talking about Black Panther after the recent trailer for Civil War, it looks like Marvel/Disney are coming close to nailing a director – and it could a great choice.

With Creed getting great reviews, it’s no surprise that director Ryan Coogler is now an in demand property and it looks like Marvel are closing in on him for the Black Panther gig.

According to Births. Movies. Deaths “negotiations are still underway for the project, so it’s possible that talks could fall through as Coogler isn’t the first director to be targeted for the film either.Selma‘s Ava DuVernay previously confirmed she turned down the opportunity andprevious reports revealed that Straight Outta Compton‘s F. Gary Gray was in contention before signing on to helm Furious 8.”

The movie will star Chadwick Boseman as the titluar hero and is set for release on February 16, 2018.

So what do you tihnk? Have any of you seen Creed yet? We’re certainly interested in the choice…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
