With the Marvel Cinematic Universe growing every year and a number of new Marvel characters appearing on the big screen, many fans have called for a Black Panther movie. While there have been rumours of a Black Panther film for years, with some top names linked to the role, we have yet to see him in any Marvel movie.
WIth the amount of Marvel films that we have coming up in the next few years, there is the possibility of introducing Black Panther in a supporting role first. One actor who has admitted that he would love to play the character, is Djimon Hounsou.
Hounsou explained, "It would be an honor to be T'Challa. It would have to be done right, given the history of that character and that comic. I have a foot in the Marvel comics world now, so we'll see where they're going to take that.”
He added, “I never read any comic books when I was younger, I just remember one of my friends in Africa at a very young age used to carry these animated booklets with him - those were comic books, and he was passionate about them."
Djimon Hounson already has links to Marvel, as he will appear as Korath the Pursuer in Guardians of the Galaxy. Other stars linked to the role include Idris Elba and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje but these two also have Marvel links with Thor: The Dark World.
