Has A Surprise Announcement Planned for Comic-Con
BLACK PANTHER MOVIE?
Marvel’s Chief Creative Office Joe Quesada is a mainstay at Comic-Con and this week hinted that an announcement is coming soon about one of the new properties being developed. Could it be something about Doctor Strange? A stand alone Hulk movie? Or maybe it’s finally Black Panther? The latter option seems the most likely now, as Quesada said that a “minority property” is coming. He seemed pretty set about this, so perhaps one of the more in demand heroes by fans is finally getting added to the Marvel slate!
So… is it Black Panther? The rumor mill has been spinning pretty quickly on a Black Panther movie lately, with 42 star Chadwick Boseman rumored to be up for the role along with Morris Chestnut, and when Marvel marked off a ton of upcoming release dates-- going all the way up to 2017!-- we started suspecting that one of them might be for Black Panther at last. Sure, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige hasn't mentioned that character as much as Doctor Strange-- who will almost certainly come up at tomorrow's panel-- but Black Panther is popular enough to be in the running.
