Todays massive dump of info from Marvel Studios at the El Capitan theater revealed an entire slate of Phase 3 films, many of which came as a pleasant surprise, including the much-anticipated BLACK PANTHER film. Along with the onslaught of new titles and dates, Marve Studios president Kevin Feige also let loose that 42 star Chadwick Boseman will play the warrior/king of the fictional country of Wakanda.

According to Deadline, Boseman is signed on to portray the character for at least 5 films, starting with CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR where Feige said we will meet T'Challa aka Black Panther for the first time (in full costume), in which he will play a pivotal role. The Civil War storyline is said to be a very different than the original comic book series where the title comes from. The seeds of Wakanda are said to start being planted in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, which will continue to build to T'Challa's introduction and eventual solo outing.

Check out the first concept art of BLACK PANTHER below!

Good for him

This guy deserves some major recognition. He was great in "42" as Robinson and I hear he was great as James Brown.

The Godfather of Soul is now also the King of Wakanda. Was rooting for either him or Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Would have preferred Idris Elba but he'll do fine. That costume looks freaking awesome. Also I know very little about the character but Isn't he Martial Arts based. I'm going to make everyone freak out and suggest Gareth Huw Evans as a director

Elba was not an option. He already has a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: as Heimdall in Thor.

I don't care! the guys just that Badass, that I'm willing to say screw it and cast him anyway. Plus those two are never going to be in the same room together anyways.

I haven't seen him in anything but Marvel hasn't let me down yet as far as casting goes.

So excited he got the role. He was my number one choice for the role and more than excited to see him join the MCU and fight along side Captain America and Iron Man. Can't wait to see his universe collide with the other established ones already.

He'll do fine in the role

He did excellent work in both 42 and GET ON UP (although Nelsan Ellis damn near stole the show in the latter) so I'm happy to see him as Black Panther. I would argue that they laid the seeds for Black Panther in the first CAPTAIN AMERICA film, but I have no life. :P

In an ideal world, I would have preferred to see John Boyega as Black Panther, but he's pretty busy with STAR WARS.

THIS.....

This is great news! I could care less about a Dr. Strange movie, but getting Black Panther into the MCU is a huge step. So excited to see this movie!
And Chadwick Boseman, could not have picked a better actor. I think he'll knock this role out of the park!

Good casting, concept art too

He is a fun, aggressive character. Just wish he could have been introduced sooner, but I'll take what I can get. My goodness, Marvel has been keeping joblo busy over the last few years.

42 was a very good film and he was outstanding in it. I could definitely see him owning the role. Good to see Marvel stepping up their casting news.
