Marvel Studios Hires Black Panther Writer

by SuperHeroHype

Jan 20th, 2011

Mark Bailey is set to pen the script

Marvel Studios has hired Mark Bailey to write the script for The Black Panther, reports Heat Vision.

Bailey hails from the documentary film world and his credits include HBO documentaries such as "Pandemic: Facing AIDS" and "Ghost of Abu Ghraib." The trade says his latest project is a feature adaptation of the non-fiction book "The Last of the Tribe: The Epic Quest to Save a Lone Man in the Amazon," to which Doug Liman is attached to direct.

The Black Panther first appeared in the pages of the "Fantastic Four" comic in 1966. The character is the king of a resource-rich fictional African country who becomes a superhero.

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige is producing.

For a movie that almost writes itself, this has faced more setbacks than is conceivable. I really don't know why Black Panther can't ever get off the ground.

Is Black Panther the Next Solo Marvel Movie?

by SuperHeroHype

June 05, 2012

There has been much speculation as to what "Phase 2" of Marvel Studios' film slate will consist of, but up until now there have been no confirmed reports.

Latino Review is reporting that next big solo movie after Captain America 2 (April 4, 2014) will be none other than The Black Panther. Could this be the untitled May 16, 2014 release? Back in January of 2011, Mark Bailey was brought on to pen the script and if this holds up, it seems we'll be getting the film after all.
With no official word from Disney/Marvel Studios for now, still consider this a rumor, but we will let you know as soon as we hear anything official.

Who do you think should play The Black Panther in the possible movie?

Terry Crews? From Expendables, the Friday movies, and Everybody Hates Chris? I think he's too long in the tooth to play BP.

Anthony Mackie Wants to be Black Panther

by SuperHeroHype

June 22, 2012

Though Disney and Marvel still deny that Black Panther will be the next solo franchise they launch, the interest in the property is at an all time high on the internet.

In an interview with HitFix, Anthony Mackie was asked if he'd been offered the role and he had this to say:

"I was hoping I would be the Incredible Hulk, but that didn't work out," Mackie replied, laughing. "I would love to be a part of ['Black Panther']. I love Black Panther and I love the story behind it. It would be cool to be a part of it."

What do you think? Mackie seems like a good fit for the role to us.

Mackie is a good actor. He's just a little too short in my opinion. I don't think you could pull off the elevator shoes like with RD Jr.

Plus he's too bulky. I could see him as Luke Cage, not T'Challa. When my wife and I were watching the chase scene in Casino Royale I said I thought the actor(Sebastien Foucon) would be a great Black Panther. He's still young enough to be the character, but old enough to pull it off too. Like you Alcinde, I'd love to see this movie take form. Given Marvels track record with the movies under their umbrella I think it would be great. Maybe a cameo in the next Avengers movie would give it the wings it needs to happen. He definitely needs a cameo somewhere, maybe Iron Man or Cap?

From IGN:

Did Stan Lee Confirm the Black Panther Movie?

Marvel may indeed be developing a feature for the Prince of Wakanda.

by Max Nicholson

July 1, 2013

During the Wizard World Comic Con in New York City this past weekend, comic book guru Stan Lee was asked about Marvel's current slate of movies planned for Phase Three. In response, Lee may have confirmed the development of the rumored Black Panther film. Here's the quote:

"The people at Marvel are spending hours trying to think 'What'll we do next?' And there's a damn good chance that they will think just what you mentioned because it would be a great idea, and little by little, everything you want to see will come along because they're just like you. They're fans of the stories and are trying to think, 'What will the fans like to see next? What would we like to see next?' So they're working on Ant-Man, working on Doctor Strange; they're working on Guardians of the Galaxy; they're working on God knows what. Did I say the Black Panther also? They're the ones I know about."

It should be noted that while Lee is often credited as an executive producer in Marvel's films, it's mostly just an honorary title. Such as it is, he probably only knows so much about the inner workings of the movie stuff -- although it is entirely possible that he knows something we don't. And the fact that he mentions Black Panther so casually alongside such confirmed titles as Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy seems to indicate that it is in development.

Could this explain Marvel recently wanting to meet with Vin Diesel, or is that just wishful thinking?

Honestly, no no no to Vin Diesel. I would love to see him in a Marvel role. This isn't it.

There are plenty of other far more qualified actors for this role.

:shock:
Yeah, that wouldn't go over well unless they totally revamped his origin.

But boy, have they been working on this forever. I remember when Snipes was pushing for the role. About ten years ago, Denzel would have been perfect.

Just keep Will Smith and his kid far away from it.

Since I saw Serenity I've wanted to see Chiwetel Ejiofor in the role. Though he could be too old. As for Vin Diesel, I think he'd do an alright Silver Surfer.

Most of the speculation for Vin seems to lean towards either Vision in Avengers 2 or Namor in a feature film. Either of which would be good for him.

I think Ejiofor would be close to the right age, depending on what part of Black Panther's story they start with. Think he's 35 or so. But I think they probably need to go younger, at least a little bit. One name I keep hearing that would REALLY fit is Chadwick Boseman. He played Jackie Robinson in 42 and was fantastic.
