Is The Black Panther movie in the works? One actor hopes so…

June 24th, 2012 by Marc Comments

The rumour mill is giddy with rumours of who’s the next Avenger… but the favourite has to be Black Panther

And it looks like Anthony Mackie (below) is keen to play the role.
He told HitFlix that: “I was hoping I would be the Incredible Hulk, but that didn’t work out. I would love to be a part of [‘Black Panther’]. I love Black Panther and I love the story behind it. It would be cool to be a part of it.”
While we at FTN have no problem with Mackie in the role and total confidence in Marvel/Disney, we always imagined T’Challa as an older man… but we’re still excited to see what comes next.

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….
