Black Panther

Non Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Black Panther Marvel Studios' Next Feature Film?!

If you’re a Black Panther fan, Marvel fan, or all-around comics fan in general, you can now start getting excited for what is sure to be one-hell of a movie, if the rumor turns out to be true.

The Internet is in overload today following last night’s rumored news that Marvel will be announcing Black Panther any day now seeing as how they hired a writer back in January. Not familiar with B.P.? That’s ok, check out Wikipedia‘s description of the character 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.

For those that don’t know, here’s a brief rundown of how Marvel Studios have handled their “first-phase” properties: In 2008, Iron Man hit theatres to an overwhelming response and ultimately began laying the groundwork for this year’s April release of The Avengers, a film that currently sits at #3 on the all-time box office grossing list behind Avatar and Titanic.

After Iron Man came The Incredible Hulk followed by Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger. Now that The Avengers has surpassed any and all expectations, Marvel is planning “phase two” of their feature film properties. The first of these films will be Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 in 2013, followed by Captain America 2 and another un-announced flick that many believe to be Black Panther for 2014. Of course this will all lead up to The Avengers 2 in 2015, yeah, we’ve done our research.

Now, the big question, and we want you to share your thoughts as usual, WHO SHOULD PLAY BLACK PANTHER? There has been plenty of talk about the likes of Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator), Michael Jai-White (Black Dynamite), Idris Elba (The Wire), and a ton of other names floating around, so what do you think? SOUND OFF!

  • RichFromBX

    Michael Jai-White??? why because he did such a great job with Spawn?…

    if they put some weight on Michael Kenneth Williams that would be trouble right there with that one…

    • mrgibson

       lol bruh the lame ass movie that Spawn turned out to be was not Michael Jai-White’s fault.  He didn’t direct any parts of that movie lol. 

      • RichFromBX

        his acting was terrible…

  • bplus1220

    Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje b.k.a Simon Adebisi!!!!!

  • Stay Phokus

    Plz not idris Elba he already has a character in Thor and ghost rider

    • black_messiah9000

      So, Captain America was the Human Torch just a few years ago.

      • Guest

        while that is true
        the fantastic four movie francise that he was in is over
        Thor and the ghost rider francises are still intact

        on top of that the role he plays in thor would be in the same cinematic universe as the black panther
        instead of giving the role to someone whos already acting in that universe
        give it to someone who isn’t, like Michael Jai White, he would also be more believable as black panther
        if you don’t think so watch mortal kombat : reborn

      • black_messiah9000

        I’d prefer the guy that voiced the cartoon, Dijimon. But Michael is a really good pick too.

  • Jas1ne

    If they liked Idris in Thor they gonna go with him, but more than likely pick a bigger actor

  • CamsPurpleFluffyDraws

    Jaleel White

  • brotha_man

    finally

  • brotha_man

    ….Tyler Perry bets not be directing it.

    • RECKLESS

      if he is guess who will NOT be seeing it!

      • brotha_man

        thats makes two of us

    • “madea’s black panther”

  • Torri Gold

    I agree with Bobby Bracey .    Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje b.k.a Simon Adebisi!!!!!  Adebisi is from Oz!

  • RECKLESS

    knew about B.P as a young’n but never knew about this on B.E.T. KERRY WASHINGTONG and ALFRED WOODARD…….two black women that DON’T date black men. when will we STOP supporting coons?

  • Reginald Bush

    Steve Harvey would be perfect for the Black Panther

    • black_messiah9000

      lmao With fifty buttons on his costume too.

  • they should do vixen next 

  • Pierre Elliott

    BLACK ASS WESLEY SNIPES, HE WAS FIRST TO DO IT..

  • I would say denzel but he too old.. Jamie Fox would be cool… Morris Chestnut would be a good look i think.. Will Smith would be great, especially bc he a big box-office draw… but truth be told, I would love to see Mos Def in the role… hes a very underrated actor.

  • STONE DIGGY

    ATIBEASTIE FROM OZ

  • Damn! Dude’s was getting rocked in that cartoon!

    Jamie Fox as Black panther?  
    Some LL , Will Smith & Sammy Jackson?

  • Michael Jai-White enuff said … A true Black Martial Artists 

  • The black dude from True Blood would be dope.  I think he was Melanie’s ex boyfriend on earlier episodes of The Game.

    • i was thinking that too but i couldnt think of dudes name.. he in a new show on USA too i saw last night when i thought the thunder were gonna be blown out…

  • Lex. Steele. *drops microphone and walks away*
    …. but all jokes aside, Denzel would be too old by 2014 and 15, so if Black Panther is gonna be in Avengers 2, my vote goes to Michael Jai aka Black Dynamite, orrrr Will Smith.

  • or Dwight Howard should get into acting, he’s definitely got the build of a super hero and calls himself Superman. But definitely not Shaq…. Never forget Kazaam -___-

  • Michael Jai White..PERIOD..He has the body, martial arts training and hasn’t been over exposed and also is a great actor..He played Spawn as well. He would definitely fit before anyone else.

    • yea but he is already spawn and if you examine the character of the black panther then you would know that he is african and the role should go to a african 

      • Peter Tosh said it best, “If you’re Black, you’re an African.” Jai White, Hounsou, or me.

  • Didn’t T.I. say that the good guys from Marvel hollerd at him for a comic franchise Movie but he can’t say too much cause it’s strictly secret lol .. 

  • lance gross

  • Black Panther and Wakonda give a fictional account of how great we can be. If this movie dont wake sleeping negros up, nuttin will.

    • black_messiah9000

      Black people don’t investigate the awesome history that we all ready have. True story.

  • TheInfiniteToker

    Remember when T.I. was in talks with Marvel about playing one of their superheroes? This is it.

  • black_messiah9000

    Dijimon Hounsou, hands down.

    • I agree perfect for the role. He’s African also no fake accident needed. 

  • $27177313

    Too bad Wesley Snipes is so old and steady having legal problems. He wanted this movie for a decade.

    • D_Ably

      Hell yeah, Snipes been talkin about this since before anyone relised what a cash cow comic book movies are

  • J

    My boy Derek Luke could pull it off.

  • It’s gotta be Aldis Hodge for Black Panther. There is no one
    else who could do it. You need someone recognizable, young enough to do
    multiple films, in great shape, good with fans. If you don’t know who he is A) You’re living under a rock?, B) Watch any episode of “Leverage” – he pops off the screen!!!
     

  • yhodge

    Aldis Hodge of Leverage  Enough Said

  • find a new actor from africa that can do an african accent properly!!!! Not some american guy making africans sound like hakeem in coming to america!!!
