EXCLUSIVE: The Next Standalone Marvel Movie After Cap Takes Place In Wakanda!
Posted on 6.5.12 by El Mayimbe

BREAKING

Earlier today I blew up my own twitter feed in the quest for new followers and boy did twitter nation respond!
Anyway, there has been much speculation as to the upcoming two Marvel films which have yet to be announced. It’s painfully obvious one of them is going to be the sequel to the Avengers.

But what about the other one?

Without further adieu, let’s get right to it…

Hell yes folks…

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.

The Black Panther has a HUGE urban following. Growing up in NYC, even though I’m more a Luke Cage fan, every Boricua I knew had crazy love for
T’challa.

Who do I think got not only the physicality but the acting chops to play the character?

My money says Nate Parker from Red Tails.

From Wikipedia

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.

So there ya have it.

Show me some more love & follow me on twitter – @elmayimbe

Speaking of twitter, congrats to the following twitter followers for being

perceptive!

@dietervonkhan @Variety_JLD @JoshuaKONeill

@devincf @uumbra @Marc_The_Mighty @MarkJulianCBM @RobertCfrom48th

@Illusive_Man_1

Hasta El Proximo Capitulo…

Couldn't fucking care less. On the other hand, Marvel's track record lately is what it is so you know I'll give it a shot.

Can a 2nd-tier character like BLACK PANTHER even carry a solo film?!

Of course, prior to May 2008 the same thing was being asked about IRON MAN so we'll just have to wait & see I guess. If Marvel does take this on, I just hope it ain't their 1st real flop. Wouldn't the oft-rumored DR. STRANGE film actually make more sense? Or even ANT-MAN?

Ya personally I would rather see strange or antman first. Not saying I don't want to see panther its a unique and different type of hero. Plus I definately like to see marvel work on some of there black heroes. I wish them the best of luck and hope it turns out good.

Another actor has expressed interest for black panther:

Aldis Hodge Wants To Lead Marvel's BLACK PANTHER

The latest actor to express interest in Marvel Studios' imminent adaptation of The Black Panther,is Leverage star Aldis Hodge. Also stating his qualities for the role,check it out after the jump! DCMarvelFreshman - 6/23/2012

Since news broke that Marvel Studios' 2014 Captain America sequel may be followed by a big-screen adaptation of The Black Panther, potential T'Challa contenders have been modestly campaigning for the King of Wakanda. Via Examiner, the latest is actor Aldis Hodge. When asked if he favored a comic book series, Hodge replied:

"Growing up I was a fan of Black Panther and X-Men comic books. I was also a huge Batman fan. There’s recently been a little buzz online about Marvel pushing for Black Panther, and I’ve been in love with the idea for years. I want the fans to know that the one role I really want to play is Black Panther. I grew up loving the Marvel world, and grew up on martial arts. I still train. When Black Panther came around, he was almost like an African American Batman."

Aldis Hodge, 25, is best known for his Alec Hardison role on the TNT Leverage TV series, which landed him a Saturn Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in Television. He has also appeared in Supernatural among many shows. And he currently has two films, The East and Lives of the Saints, in production. What do you think?

Someone refresh my memory. Who did he play on SUPERNATURAL? He doesn't look like the hunter who later became a vampire & Sam killed.

Jake Talley:

http://www.supernatural-fan-wiki.com/page/Jake+Talley



Jake is one of the special children picked by the yellow-eyed demon (YED, Azazel) and sent to Cold Oak, South Dakota, in All Hell Breaks Loose: Part 1 to duke it out. Jake's special power is that he is super strong.

Jake and Sam are the last two contenders left at the end of this episode. Sam tries to convince Jake not to listen to the demon, saying they should stick together to make it out alive. Just as Dean and Bobby find them and make their way into the ghost town, Jake stabs Sam in the back, killing him. Jake runs off.

In All Hell Breaks Loose: Part 2, Jake meets up with YED at the edge of the tracks that form the giant devil's trap guarding the gate to hell. We learn that the mission of the last special child left standing is to go in (since YED can't do it himself) and use the Colt to unlock the gate. Coerced by threats and promises about his family, Jake agrees to do it.

Dean, the resurrected Sam, Bobby, and Ellen try to stop him, but Jake manipulates Ellen's gun to point to her own head, making the rest for the team drop their weapons. As he turns away to use the Colt on the gate, Dean and Bobby rescue Ellen, and Sam grabs a gun and guns down Jake.

Two more actors interested in black panther role:
http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/MarvelFreshman/news/?a=62412

Brian J. White Open To Playing BLACK PANTHER

Responding to a fan's suggestion,actor Brian J. White has further expressed his desire to work with Marvel Studios, now in regards to their Black Panther adaptation rather than Luke Cage. DCMarvelFreshman - 6/26/2012

As more actors express interest in the titular role of Marvel's forthcoming Black Panther big screen adaptation, fans are now modestly reaching out to their preferred candidates via social networking. The latest is actor Brian J. White, 37, who is best known for his roles in Fighting, Stomp the Yard and recently The Cabin in the Woods.

@actorbrianwhite Marvel should hire you to play Black Panther B Nevz The BeatMaker @BNevz412

Would love to work with Marvel. “@BNevz412 Marvel should hire you to play Black Panther”

Brian White @actorbrianwhite Follow

25 Jun 12 Reply

Brian J. White has been keen on working with Marvel for quite some time, expressing his interest in 'Luke Cage' back in 2009, following the success of Iron Man. And although speaking of his eligibility for the 'Cage' role, White told Movieline in August of 2009: "I think I have the skill-set. Like Iron Man, you have to be able to handle drama and comedy; you have to have the physique to be able to take off your shirt; you have to have a certain statue – if you're 5'8 it doesn't really work so well, unless it's a small superhero – and you have to have a certain athletic ability. That's what I'm angling towards. These are $150 million movies, so I'm trying to pay my dues, and do the work, so that I might get a look-in."

Romeo Miller Says He Was Approached For BLACK PANTHER & Is Interested

While promoting his new movie Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection,Romeo Miller (previously Lil' Romeo) is asked if he has any interest in filling the role of T'Challa. nailbiter111 - 6/26/2012

Since Latino-Review came out with the claim that Marvel Studios' 2014 mystery film is in fact Black Panther, several actors have been asked and expressed interest in playing the superhero. Next on our list is Romeo Miller, the rapper/actor who is best known by his previous stage name, Lil' Romeo is asked by BlackFilm.com if he wants to be the King of Wakanda. 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.

Raw Leiba Lobbies For BLACK PANTHER Villain Role By Donning Erik Killmonger Costume

Last August the Coventry Telegraph reported that actor and stuntman Raw Leiba had met with Marvel about playing Black Panther's nemesis Erik Killmonger. Now,he has donned the villain's costume in an attempt to convince the powers that be that he is right for the part. nailbiter111 - 6/27/2012


It's been almost a year since the Coventry Telegraph reported that Raw Leiba had met with Marvel about possibly playing Erik Killmonger. Now the relatively unknown actor/stuntman has decided to make a more dramatic pitch for the part by donning the full costume.

Image Courtesy of CoventryTelegraph.net

Last August he explained to worldofblackheroes.com why he wanted the role. Easy one, because he’s an expert fighter and can match Black Panther both Mentally and Physically and hopefully if I’m officially offered the role of Erik Killmonger my performance will make him very well known. Actors will tell you its allot more fun to be the bad guy, you can go outside the script a little bit and add your own personal touch to the character and it doesn’t hurt I look EXACTLY like the guy.

Not a good way to get cast. Reminds me of when Sean Young went coo-coo For Cocoa Puffs when Burton didn't cast her as Catwoman, and she went on all the daytime talk shows dressed like this:
