After a day full of teases and trying to get Twitter in a frenzy, Latino Review’s El Mayimbe revealed that the film Marvel will announce during ComicCon to go with Captain America in 2014 will be the King of Wakanda himself- T’Challa. That’s right, it appears The Black Panther is going to be making it to the big screen. Here’s what Latino Review had to say:
THE BLACK PANTHER is going to headline his own film!
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 clues were always there. They showed Wakanda on the map in Iron Man 2 and Captain America’s shield is made from Vibranium which also hails from Wakanda. The Black Panther has a long development history which at one point had Wesley Snipes attached to star. Marvel got the rights back to the character in 2005.
Because there’s no official announcement, take it with a grain of salt. But on the other hand, the site is usually pretty reliable when it comes to Marvel scoops so this one is probably on the up-and-up. As they stated, the groundwork for several Marvel characters was laid down in Iron Man 2. With the little bit of set-up that has been completed, the payoff may come in 2014. The Black Panther may be making it in time for The Avengers 2, who knows? Many actors have said they wanted to play T’Challa, but it probably won’t be too long before we find out who snags the role. Who do you think should be the king?
