Is Black Panther Marvel’s Next Film?
If you’re a Marvel fan then you should be ready to hear some really good news!
There’s a rumor going around that Marvel is planning to make a Black Panther movie and we’re hoping this rumor will be true.
Marvel hired a writer in January, but no one is familiar yet into what movie that writer will be helping on. Fans have been going crazy on the internet just waiting for Marvel to announce when Black Panther will be released in theaters. With Marvel’s latest hit movie “The Avengers” I know for a fact that Black PAnther will be an box-office hit!
If you’re not familiar with Black Panther, check out Wikipedia’s description below:
“The title “Black Panther” is a rank of office, chieftain of the Wakandan Panther Clan. As chieftain, the Panther is entitled to eat a special heart-shaped herb, as well as his mystical connection with the Wakandan Panther god, that grants him superhumanly acute senses and increases his strength, speed, stamina, and agility to the peak of human development. He has since lost this connection and forged a new one with another unknown Panther deity, granting him augmented physical attributes as well as a resistance to magic.
His senses are so powerful that he can pick up a prey’s scent and memorize tens of thousands of individual ones. T’Challa is a rigorously trained gymnast and acrobat, showing mastery in various African martial arts as well as contemporary ones and fighting styles that belong to no known disciplines.”
Let’s just say Marvel knows how to handle their “first-phase” pretty well. In 2008, Iron Man was released and hit theaters, which got an overwhelming response and fans wanted to see more. In April of 2012, The Avengers hit theaters and it’s a film that is currently sitting on #3 on the all-time box office grossing list behind Titanic and Avatar.
First it was Iron Man then The Incredible Hulk followed by Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger. Since The Avengers became a big hit, Marvel is planning “phase two” for their movie. They started recording for the sequel the same week The Avengers was released in theaters.
Marvel’s next films that will be released in the future are Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 in 2013, followed by Captain America Sequel and another unannounced flick that many believe to be Black Panther for 2014. Of course the list isn’t done quite yet, all these movies will lead up to The Avengers 2 in 2015.
My question to Marvel is “Who should play Black Panther?” There’s been a lot of talk about which actors should play the role of Black Panther such as Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator), Choi Seung-hyun (71 Into The Fire), Michael Jai-White (Black Dynamite), Idris Elba (The Wire) Lee Byung-hun (G.I. Joe), and a ton more names floating around, so what do you think?
