Morris Chestnut comments on the Black Panther rumors!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Boyz N The Hood star Morris Chestnut has created a bit of a speculation storm when he tweeted a photo of a Black Panther cover with the comment "It's time to get familiar with the Black Panther character!" That in and of itself means little, but the fact that he, in short order, took the tweet down says that it's more than just an actor deciding to read up on some Marvel characters.
Is he going to play T'Challa or is it all a crazy mix-em-up? Well, he sent out another tweet today that reads thusly:
Those simple two words "not final" at least clears up some of it. He's not just reading for entertainment, but whether or not this means he's in active negotiations is still unclear. We learned from the Jason Mamoa/Guardians of the Galaxy stuff that actors and their management aren't above leaking information in order to build buzz. Everybody wants on the Marvel train now, which is a good thing.
Chestnut's a decent pick for the character. Some have suggested Idris Elba for the role, which is also great, however Black Panther was once voiced by Keith David in the '90s Fantastic Four cartoon and that makes me wish we could turn back time and cast late '80s Keith David. So, scientists, let's get to work on that, shall we?
