5 Possible Directors for The "Black Panther" Movie

By: 06.06.12  •  7 Comments
Is T’Challa headed for the screen? If you listen to Latino Review, the answer is yes.

It makes sense. We were pretty gung-ho about a Doctor Strange movie, but since The Avengers is on track to make $600 million in the United States alone, Marvel obviously wants to introduce more Avengers to make sure the second film makes even more money.

It’d also go a long way towards resolving the not unreasonable gripe that the Avengers are about as diverse as an Abercrombie catalogue, and watching T’Challa beat people up is always entertaining, even after Marvel decided to nerf him in the comics.

But who should direct? We’ve got five nominees.

#5) Antoine Fuqua

Fuqua knows both action and drama: he directed “Training Day”, “Tears of the Sun”, and “Brooklyn’s Finest”. Of course, he’s also pretty busy, but he could probably make some room for a guaranteed massive hit.

#4) Bronwen Hughes

If you want to make a movie about Africa, go with an African director. Yeah, she made “Harriet the Spy”, but Hughes also delivered the great and underseen action movie “Stander” in 2003…and has been unfairly stuck in TV ever since. But she could deliver a great “Black Panther”.

#3) Neill Blomkamp

Come on, you’ve seen “District 9”. You know what he’s capable of. And he’s wrapping up “Elysium” for 2013, so he’ll probably be looking for work.
