Chadwick Boseman is Black Panther
As announced at the Marvel event just a bit ago, Chadwick Boseman will be joining the Marvel cinematic universe as Black Panther. We had the confirmation of the film back in January of this year.
The 37 year old actor is mostly known for his break-out role as Jackie Robinson in the movie 42.
Black Panther first appeared in 1966 in Fantastic Four #52. He is the first black superhero in mainstream American comics, and pre-dates the Black Panther Party. The character’s real name is T’Challa, and he’s the ruler of the African nation of Wakanda, a technology rich and advance nation. You can learn more about the character here.
At the event, the below poster was handed out giving us our first idea of what he’ll look like. The film will be out November 3, 2017.
