Default Re: Black Panther Solo Film!

This is awesome news. Given Marvel's approach to picking directors for the other movies, I feel like they will definitely want a black director, and given that he was approached to do a Black Panther movie back in 2007, John Singleton is still incredibly likely, I think. And Singleton's choice is Chiwetel Ejiofor, who's only 34, making him exactly the right age for the role (contrast with Djimon Honsou, who is pushing 50, even if he don't look it). Plus, Ejiofor was in Serenity, and Joss Whedon will likely have a hand in producing all the Marvel movies from here on out, so I think Ejiofor should be considered the heavy favorite.
