How Many Movies Has Chadwick Boseman Signed On For With Marvel?

Quote
Marvel Studios shocked everyone today when they revealed that Chadwick Boseman will bring the Black Panther to the big screen first in Captain America: Civil War and then his own solo movie. The 42 star had been mentioned as being in the running by Latino-Review, but like Ezra Miller being cast as The Flash, the official announcement came pretty much out of nowhere! Deadline have now weiged in on the casting and already have the exclusive on Boseman's role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "I hear he’s signed a lucrative five-film deal that begins with 2016’s Captain America: Civil War continues through Marvel’s just-unveiled Phase 3 line-up." A five picture deal obviously means we'll be seeing a lot of the Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe then, and it would be very surprising if he doesn't make an appearance in a future Avengers movie and obviously a sequel to his own 2017 solo outing. That's not all they have details on though.

When Kevin Feige was asked whether Marvel will be targeting an African American director for Black Panther and a female helmer for Captain Marvel, he replied: "We’re looking for the best directors possible," but did acknowledge that producer/director Reginald Hudlin is one filmmaker with Marvel ties (he wrote Black Panther for a time, retelling his origin and marrying him off to Storm). "Reggie I’ve known for many years and is a great guy – I think I’m meeting him again shortly." Who do you guys think is the right choice to helm these movies?

For me, Reginald Hudlin is the only choice that makes sense.

I trust no one else to do T'Challa, Shuri and Wakanda justice on the big screen.



Completely and totally agree. By far, R to the H is number one. By far. Byyy faarrrr.

Antoine Fuqua is number two.

There ya go.

I was thinking that maybe Nicole Beharie could play Shuri. It'd be a reunion of sorts because she played alongside Chadwick in 42 as his wife/love interest.

Chadwick was my FIRST choice. For one I wanted a young actor. He is handsome suave and I was very impressed with him as Jackie Robinson were he was outstanding and he was very good as James Brown (whom I don't particularly care for). I love the trajectory of his career. Lupita would be a perfect Shuri. I hope Shuri is still around.

Lupita certainly doesn't seem physical enough to be Shuri. I would think that she definitely would need lotsa training to muscle up and have the physical presence of Shuri, much less Shuri's amazing physical skill, speed, agility, and her luscious curves.

If she can work it out like that? Yeah, Lupita would be perfect.

She'd also be a dope Catwoman. If she did the above work expected of Shuri

In case you didn't realize supreme illuminati, the women in the picture is Danai Guirra. She plays Michonne on the AMC drama series The Walking Dead.

A good read.

BETWEEN THE PANELS: THIS IS THE EDGE BLACK PANTHER WILL GIVE MARVEL'S MOVIES

BY JESSE SCHEDEEN

This month has been an embarrassment of riches for fans of Marvel Studios' films, what with the debut of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer and the announcement of the entire Phase 3 lineup. It seems there will soon be a Marvel movie for all types, including people who want a superhero film not starring a handsome, funny white guy.

Personally, I'm most intrigued by the focus on Black Panther at Marvel's conference. Not only are we getting a solo Black Panther movie in 2017, the character will also play a prominent role in Captain America: Civil War the year before. And we even learned that Chadwick Boseman will be playing the King of Wakanda. Part of this stems from my personal attachment to the character. But it's also interesting to see how much Black Panther's prominence hints at the scope and direction of Phase 3. More than Captain Marvel or Doctor Strange or the Inhumans, Black Panther should be at the core of Marvel's Hollywood storytelling over the next few years.



The appeal of Black Panther is pretty simple. As much as some people like to reductively describe T'Challa as "Marvel's Batman," it's really not that far off. Sure, they share the same silhouette, but T'Challa is also the resident bad-ass among the Avengers. He's less about overt super-powers and more about fancy gadgets and insane levels of strategic planning. Panther also has an arrogant intelligence that always makes his interactions with fellow super-genius Topny Stark fun to read. I'm very eager to see how Boseman and Robert Downey, Jr. play off one another in these upcoming films.

Panther also has a knack for defeating villains who, by all rights, should be way above his pay grade. Case in point:



Why, yes, that is Mephisto, Prince of Lies and Lord of Evil.

People seem to like Batman alright, so there's no harm in Marvel adding someone of that dark, mysterious, uber-cool archetype to their movies. Hey, if you can't get Wolverine, get the guy who was Wolverine-ing before Wolverine existed.

If that were all Black Panther had going for him, his movie would still probably do pretty well. However, there's a deeper importance to the character and what he can bring to Marvel's films. Part of that is simply that Marvel is finally hinging a solo superhero film on a black character. Certainly, characters like War Machine and The Falcon have risen to prominence in the last few years, but they've always been supporting players in another hero's movie. With the Blade franchise dormant and WB's Cyborg movie still years away, the superhero genre needs all the diversity it can get if these movies are to appeal to the broadest audience possible.



Panther's importance goes even deeper than that. The fact is that Black Panther isn't really a superhero at all. He may look the part, and he's contributed his fair share when it comes to defending the world from villains. But at the end of the day, he's not a hero. He's a king. T'Challa is the ruler of the world's most technologically advanced nation and the figurehead of a religious faith. He's charged with safeguarding a kingdom that has always remained staunchly isolationist as it safeguards a large supply of the world's rarest and most valuable metal known an vibranium.

This opens up an entirely new set of challenges and conflicts. He has responsibilities that go far beyond simply protecting his family or maintaining a secret identity. Millions of lives rest on his every decision. Of the Avengers introduced in these films so far, only Thor has any real inkling of the pressures a man like Black Panther faces.

There's a distinctly political element that comes into play with any Black Panther-centric story. As a king, he's basically a visiting foreign dignitary any time he steps foot on American soil. Any Avengers team-up risks sparking a massive international incident. That creates an internal tension you don't see with the other Avengers. Black Panther may see evil in the world - violence, racial disparity, corporate greed - but he can't just slap on his costume and go pummel that evil into submission. He has to take a smarter and more pragmatic approach to doing good. Meanwhile, he's constantly defending his country from opportunistic rivals who would like nothing better to exploit Wakanda's natural resources. Vibranium is the new oil.



This plays into the general story direction Marvel seems to be heading with Phase 3. It's very telling that Panther is making his cinematic debut in 2016's Captain America: Civil War rather than his own movie the following year. The Marvel movies are headed in a more political direction already. Captain America: The Winter Soldier dealt very directly with the notion of "freedom vs. tyranny." Whom does a hero like Captain America really serve? What should the role of a peacekeeping agency like S.H.I.E.L.D. be in world affairs? Meanwhile, the fallout of Avengers: Age of Ultron will bring up its own issues. What sort of accountability do superhumans have? Should the public trust the Avengers when they're basically walking weapons of mass destruction, one of whom is capable of creating indestructible robots who plot humanity's extinction? Maybe some government oversight is needed?

All of that will fuel into the Civil War movie. Marvel has already been very clear that this take on the Civil War storyline is less about secret identities and more about accountability and oversight. Iron Man will fall on one side of the conflict as he struggles to atone for his mistakes in Age of Ultron, while Captain America campaigns for liberty and personal freedoms. And then you add Black Panther into the mix. It's hard to say exactly where the character will fit into this dynamic, but his mere presence elevates the Civil War conflict from an American issue to an international one. If T'Challa steps in to support Captain America's faction, how does that affect Wakanda's relationship with the rest of the world? Does it give his secretive kingdom the sort of unwanted attention it's always avoided?


Black Panther Civil War

Black Panther is an essential part of making these films more political and focused on a global scale rather than an American one. And that's a good thing. Superhero comics often have a problem with focusing on the bigger picture. They become so focused on the soap opera quality of the heroes' lives and the endless stream of crossovers and villains that they lose sight of what these heroes are fighting for in the first place. That's where the X-Men franchise went sour during the '90s. It's a problem many of Marvel and DC's big crossover comics face today. These stories have to be about more than one group of costumed super-people fighting another group.

Many have voiced the concern that the superhero movie genre will overextend itself and the bubble will burst. With Marvel Studios and WB both planning three films annually in the years ahead (to say nothing of competing efforts from Fox, Sony, etc.), the flow is definitely only going to increase. What's important is for Marvel and other companies to be as versatile as possible with these projects. Just this year, we've seen the political thriller superhero film, the quirky space fantasy superhero film, and the time-travel sci-fi superhero film. The superhero genre doesn't really have to be a genre at all. And by introducing Black Panther and making him a centerpiece of their Phase 3 plans, Marvel can really show viewers what their superhero universe can offer.  IGN Logo
