We’re only a few weeks away from “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” a film which also includes the first hints of the world that we’ll later see in the standalone “Black Panther” movie due for release in 2018.
Today, El Mayimbe has posted a report that says former “Ghostbusters” star Ernie Hudson is circling the role of King T’Chaka in the movie. The character is the ruler of Wakanda, and father to Chadwick Boseman’s character T’Challa (a.k.a. The Black Panther).
The report says Hudson has been hitting the gym and picking up back issues of the Black Panther comic books that pertain to T’Chaka. As the film has no director yet, it’ll be some time off. But Boseman’s T’Challa is set to make his debut in “Captain America: Civil War” which begins shooting very shortly.
Could King T’Chaka also make an appearance in that film? Another question raised is if the “Black Panther” film will use the comics storyline which saw T’Chaka murdered by Ulysses Klaue, a character whom Andy Serkis is playing in “Avengers: Age of Ultron”.
Speaking of “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, EW has released images of its multiple covers for this week’s issue which add up to one big shot of the film’s cast. Most notable is that the shot includes a very good look at Paul Bettany’s Vision. Check it out below.
