WATCH: Is Chadwick Boseman set for Black Panther role?

August 3rd, 2014 by Marc Comments

We think, along with comic fans across the globe, that’s it’s a fairly safe bet we’ll be seeing Black Panther in the Marvel Movie Universe very soon.

But the question is, who will play him and how soon can we expect to see the character appear?

Appearing on breakfast show The Breakfast Club, actor Chadwick Boseman – currently doing the press thing for his performance as James Brown in the movie Get On Up – got talking about Marvel and in particular Black Panther and he dropped some cryptically interesting comments. Starting off saying “Ahhh, I don’t know anything about that,” the young actor then added, “Until the contract is signed, I don’t know.”

Hold on, what? Did he just confirm he IS in talks and may even be close to signing on? Watch this space for more info as it comes along… but you know that already.

Continues after the picture…

And if Panther is close to being cast, does that mean he may be introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron? Since he rules Wakanda, the country that supplies the metal for, among other things, Captain America’s shield and we’ve all seen the image of the Shield from the second Avengers movie (above), we think it may well be a possibility. Only time will tell…

Is he a good choice? Is there someone you’d rather see in the role? Let us know below, @Nerdfollowing or on Facebook

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….
