It is always nice to see an actor working hard for a few years, before then putting in their breakout performance and really beginning to get the recognition that their hard work and talent deserves. That is exactly what has been happening to the hugely talented actor John Boyega over the past few years or so.
We have no doubt that there are some of you who had never heard the name John Boyega just a couple of years ago, until he gave us his impressive performance in the surprisingly good movie Attack the Block. This has led to many doors opening for John, including a big role in the upcoming movie Star Wars: Episode VII.
Now though, it looks like John Boyega has got his sights set on another very big movie role, with plans on getting himself a role as a big screen superhero in a Marvel movie. John recently took to his official Twitter account to tease his fans and followers that he would love to play the role of Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Boyega tweeted, "Marvel role? ....hehehe ... I'm dam right aiming for it" before then going on to add, "Currently booking flight to wakanda". However, John Boyega is not the only name linked to the role of Black Panther, as the likes of Chadwick Boseman, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Morris Chestnut, Mehcad Brooks and Aldis Hodge have all been mentioned in the past. We would just like confirmation that a Black Panther movie is actually in the works.
Who would you like to see playing Black Panther?
