Marvel Hires Writer for a Black Panther Movie

 I was quite giddy when I read this.  Marvel has hired a screenwriter to come up with a draft for a Black Panther movie.  It appears that most of Mark Bailey's  work has been on documentaries so it's tough to say whether this is a good or bad choice.  Regardless, I have a feeling that this means we may see a cameo of T'challa in Joss Whedon's Avengers movie.  Here's The Hollywood Reporter's story:


  1. I read somewhere that the top male actors to take up the role are Idris Elba and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Both guys could really do incredible things with this role, but I'd go with Idris Elba. Everything he's been in the last several years have been fantastic.

  2. Chiwetel Ejiofor would be an awesome choice as well. Redbelt was way cool.
