Actor Morris Chestnut made some intriguing revelations on his Twitter page over the last few days, which may indicate that he is playing Black Panther in The Avengers 2. Here is his first tweet from yesterday, that was later deleted.

"It's time to get familiar with the Black Panther character!"

Earlier today, he responded to a fan who asked about the Black Panther movie that is in development.

"Not final #BlackPanther may be in #avengers2 first. RT @jamaal91604133: @Morris_Chestnut Can't wait to see this movie. #BlackPanther"

Black Panther may possibly be one of the movies showcased in Marvel Phase III, so it would make sense to have him pop up in The Avengers 2. Nothing is confirmed at this point, so stay tuned for more details.

Morris Chestnut will be seen in a much different superhero movie this summer, Kick-Ass 2.

Avengers: Age of Ultron comes to theaters May 1st, 2015 and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Elizabeth Olsen, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.

    About Vin Disel for my consideration he must play Black Panther or somone else a villan may'be a super or supreme scrull. With a wig he can be henry pym or Yellow Jacket enything is possible

    To me he looks like Blade, they need to start developing Luke Cage and a few others. Can't have these superhero's to be all white and that's coming from a white dude.

    Chiwetel Eijofir is a good choice, all the others are too old. They need to go with a young relatively unknown actor.

    I say no to this, There are much better actors who could play BP other than Chestnut

    He feels more like a Luke Cage to me, but I'm cool with this casting if it goes ahead. He's likely a lot cheaper than Hounsou, but Ejiofor would be a great choice. Idris Elba would kill this role were he not already playing the gatekeeper in Thor.

    Hounsou or Eijofer would be obvious choices, but if not, if the alternative choice can talk like he's from Wakanda and can perform well physically and emotionally, I'm good wither way

    @ghostman He most likely deleted the tweets after he had just released he messed himself up in snagging the role, maybe?

    His not the black panther, Marvel-Disney are planning a Black Panther movie, but at the moment it's strandard in development hell as of the current moment and I doubt he'll appear in Avengers 2

    He's most likely already have signed on if his tweets were deleted soon after.

    Why can't iron fist and Luke cage be in this and hopefully black panther would be in as one of the phase 3 movies

    @dan1 Yeah, Chiwetel is a great, underrated actor. Really can't understand why he hasn't gotten more roles, although I'm hopeful 12 Years a Slave sees that trend reversed somewhat in the coming years.

    If they can ever make the movie, i can see Micheal Jai White as T Chaka and an unknown as Tchala

    Honsou and and Ejiofor are equally too old.

    This is wrong and hopefully not true. 1. He is too old 2. They need a young black stud to take this role and trust me there alot of them out there. I had a chat with Greg Johnson who wrote Ultimate avengers 1&2 had a great story in 2 that enlightened us more on Black Panther, its just a pity marvel cant bring out more black superheros like Luke Cage or Iron Fist.

    @dan1 Perfectly said, my friend. Hounsou or Eijofer are prime choices in comparison to Chestnut, who is just wrong for the role any way you slice it.

    He doesn't look like the king of Wakanda to me, what about Djimon Hounsou, He would be a great choice, he has the accent, the physique and the acting abilities to bring this character to life, Great Actor.
