Chadwick Boseman Says BLACK PANTHER Role "Not Out Of The Question"
Fan-favorite Chadwick Boseman (42, Get On Up, Gods of Egypt, Fringe) recently revealed to MTV, that taking the Black Panther role was "not out of the question" for him. Marvel placed Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch on one of their casting lists for Doctor Strange, after a large section of fandom championed him for the role. Ben is still one of the three in-the-mix for the role, alongside Tom Hardy and Jared Leto. I wouldn't be shocked if they've actually placed him on a similar list, or have already reached-out to him about the role.
It's assumed that Black Panther will indeed be apart of Marvel's upcoming lineup of new franchises. Which may or may not be announced at this year's Comic-Con.
