> First time hearing about this. I thought this might happen...that BP might appear in FF before his own movie.
That was my understanding as well.
I wonder what a Black Panther movie would gross domestically? 75k, 100k.
Anyway, it'll be interesting to see who wants a Black Panther movie more: Marvel/Paramount or Fox.
With Fox doing it they would naturally be able to do a story closest to the comic.
If Marvel does it though, they'll almost have to use some semblance of Reggie Hudlin's "Who Is The Black Panther?" Because, and irony of ironies, the Fantastic Four wouldn't be available to them.
(God, and thinking about that, Fantastic Four would have been the perfect first movie for Marvel, as opposed to Iron Man.) :-/
I think the success (or failure) of Will Smith's John Hancock next year will go a long way in determining any kind of FF spin-off Black Panther movie, or stand-alone Marvel Black Panther movie. Because if John Hancock does well, then it'll be that much easier for a superhero movie with a black lead. If John Hancock doesn't do well, then it'll be that much harder for a superhero movie with a black lead, because the perception will probably be "Well, if Will Smith couldn't sell, then... "
Yo, I'm Serious
