Latino Review says it has it on good authority that The Black Panther will be the next Marvel movie announced from Disney and Marvel Studios.
How do I know? Let’s say I got it from FOUR different trusted sources.
Marvel is going BIG TIME after the urban film audience and I applaud them for that. Last year, it was reported that Marvel hired Mark Bailey to pen the script and I hear the script is fantastic.
The Black Panther (T’Challa) is a fictional character in the Marvel Comics Universe. Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and penciller-co-plotter Jack Kirby, he first appeared in Fantastic Four #52 (July 1966). He is the first black superhero in mainstream American comics, debuting several years before such early African-American superheroes as Marvel’s the Falcon and Luke Cage, and DC Comics’ Tyroc, Black Lightning and Green Lantern John Stewart.
So what other evidence is there that Marvel might be considering the character? Remember this shot from Iron Man 2?
I don’t remember it either but Wakanda is highlighted on the map.
Does the Latino Review claim and the shot from Iron Man mean that T’Challa is going to get his own stand alone movie in 2014? The character is very popular, and he is part of Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, so the chances are good. But with the rumors that Ant Man are on the way, I get the feeling that we may be getting prepped to see The Black Panther appear as a new member of The Avengers in Avengers 2: Kick-Ass Boogaloo.
