Latino Review has confirmed that Marvel will make a Black Panther film following “Captain America 2,” which will premiere in 2014. The comic book-to-film centric website teased the news earlier today on Twitter, and updated its followers this afternoon with more info which confirmed their suspicion.
Writes Latino Review:
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.
Who do you think should play Panther? We’re rooting for Idris Elba.
