'BLACK PANTHER' Next For Marvel Studios

While Kevin Feige has mentioned that the next Marvel film will feature a character outside of the Avengers world. He might have been talking about the phase one Avengers. As LatinoReview is reporting that Marvel Studios next feature will take audiences to the fictional tech-advanced African nation of Wakanda and introduce us to The Black Panther. If you follow the comics or even the Avengers cartoon T'challa ends up joining the Avengers team as a longtime member. They also claim that Mark Bailey's script is "fantastic" which is promising news in itself. There hasn't been news of a director but I wouldn't be shocked if some of the names connected to Captain America 2 are also being looked at for Panther.

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.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje had been campaigning for the role but knowing Marvel they'll go the route of Cap and Thor hiring a younger actor to keep a franchising going for years to come. My bet is that since they cast Derek Luke in Captain America they could be looking at similar projects like Red Tails to find a promising lead. I'm just proud to see Marvel going all-in with this next adventure and I'll be first in line to see when it hits theaters.
