I don’t know how Andewale Akinnuoye (Adebisi from “Oz”) or Djimon Hounsou will feel about this, but it looks like there is a new candidate for the role of the Black Panther. Now, I don’t mean the militant Civil Rights group of the 60s and even now. I mean the Marvel Comics character from the fictitious African Nation Wakanda. Well, freakin’ Romeo Miller has tossed his hat in the fray as one of the candidates that may play in the live action movie if it ever gets green-lit.
He told some things to BlackFilm.com:
With Marvel possibly doing a film on the Black Panther, is that a role you can see yourself doing?
RM: I would love to. I remember that before Jumping the Broom got released, there were some producers were talking about shopping the script to some people and I was one of the people they contacted and was asked if it was something I would be interested in. You never know. I definitely want to take in and be the next big action hero. That may be something that’s cool.
For the record, the Black Panther is tentative for 2014. For the record, I won’t see a Black Panther with Lil Romeo. No hate. No disrespect. We’ll see.
