‘Black Panther’ Will Be The Next Way Marvel Makes Tons Of Money
For those not in the know about Marvel's second and third-tier heroes, Black Panther is an African king who has heightened senses, retractable claws, and weapon called the ebony blade. Awesome. You'll be happy to know that the character was developed in the 60's as a response to the growing Black Power movement. Double awesome. Wesley Snipes was slated to play the Black Panther in the mid-90's. Oops. That was a step backwards. Back down to one awesome.
This move will not come as a surprise to comic geeks who had noted in Iron Man 2 that a board showin the Avengers had a big mark on it in Africa, designating the Black Panther. For those of us without that level of, uh, dedication, let this article serve as notice. There's going to be a Black Panther movie. (Cinema Blend)
