We might have not got to see much of Black Panther and Wakanda in Avengers: Endgame, but fans are eagerly waiting for the sequel. In Avengers: Infinity War, T’Challa and his kingdom Wakanda played a key role. After all, it’s the place where Thanos snapped his fingers and turned half the population into dust.
Chadwick Boseman made his entry as T’Challa in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Captain America: Civil War (2016). In 2018, he starred in his solo film, Black Panther. It proved to be one of the best MCU films. After Avengers: Endgame, fans can’t wait to see him play the character again. But what if we tell you that one of the popular actors was keen to play Chadwick’s character?
In our Avengers: Endgame Trivia #65, we’ll tell you the name of the actor who wanted to play Black Panther. It’s none other than The Perfect Guy actor, Morris Chestnut. In an interview with iamROGUE earlier, Morris talked about his interest in playing this Marvel superhero. He said, “Obviously I would love to play that part, but Marvel and that studio—they’re a mega-machine, and they have the people in mind that they want to do.”
Morris Chestnut added, “Maybe If I had gotten to kick ass in ‘Kick-Ass’ they would consider me, but you never know what’s going to happen. Stranger things have happened in this industry.” There were also rumours that he is playing Black Panther when the actor had shared a cover of the character’s comic book on his social media page. But he deleted the post later.
Meanwhile, Black Panther 2 is set after the events of Avengers: Endgame. There are reports that Namor will make an entry in the sequel. But there’s no confirmation on the same.
