    Monica hasn't shown up in the comics for over a decade I personally think they'll use an original character.

    Do you guys think they would change Shuri to a love interest?

    I know a lot of Black Panther fans who wanted Lupita to play Shuri but...that would be weird. It would be like making Wanda and Pietro into lovers instead of twins :sweat:.

    It's looks like Micheal B. Jordan don't want to go to Fantastic Four.

    Good for him.

    Wow, he got back into comic adaptions faster then I expected, though I imagine Coogler probably had something to do with it ;).

    Though good for Jordan that he's going to be getting the chance to star in a, in all likehlihood, better comic book movie then Fant4stic, and the irony of another Human Torch in the MCU is funny :D.

    Definitely curious who he could be playing though...if it's a villain role, Killmonger o_O?

    Welcome to the winning team, Michael!

    He might be playing Killmonger.

    :D Lupita Nyong'o in Black Panther! My dream is coming true... kind of. I wanted her to play Shuri, but if she's playing a love interest, that's okay. But Shuri should definitely be in this movie!

    It's interesting that Michael B. Jordan is in this one too. I could certainly see him as Erik Killmonger, but I hope Andy Serkis returns as Klaw. I'd like to see a version of his classic colorful costume on the big screen. As hard as it would be to fully adapt the costume in live-action, I hope Marvel at least gives him a red/purple shirt and mask similar to the comics.

    I'd like to see T'Chaka (via flashbacks or conversations), the Dora Milaje, and Everett Ross all return from Captain America: Civil War. On top of that, I hope we see some vibranium weapons, the Black Panther's regal cape, and his supporting cast like Queen Ramonda, N'Gassi, and so much more! (I'm really excited for this movie if you can't tell.)

    And another thing I wanted to mention: I want this movie focused on the Black Panther. No world building unless it's for a sequel. I really don't want the Black Panther movie to be focused on other MCU characters. I wouldn't mind small cameos for Bucky or Captain America, but I really want this one focused solely on Black Panther.

    And Martin Freeman.

    But wow, the cast is looking so good. I really like Michael Jordan (the only actor who was even trying in the FF reboot) so I'm glad to see him get more CBM roles. :)

    Well, we should see Winter Soldier again. If MJ is playing the villain, they might wisely save Serkis' Klaw for the sequel.

    Makes sense. It would be cool to see Jordan as a villain.

    Given that most of the audience is not made up of comic book readers, that doesn't really indicate much. Darren Cross only ever appeared in two issues and was absent from the Marvel universe for like 30 years and they still used him as the main villain of the Ant-Man movie. Hope Van Dyne was the female lead of the movie and is becoming the Wasp but she never even appeared in the mainstream Marvel universe before the movies.

    They might save Bucky's return for Infinity War.

    Granted, Cross was the villain of Scott's origin story that the Ant-Man movie was generally based off of, so it made sense to include him there even if he was never a big villain, and they even upgraded him by turning him into Yellowjacket :ack:.

    But yeah, time out of the spotlight usually doesn't play that much of a factor in terms of who appears in the movies, at least as far as love interests go. Pepper Potts and Jane Foster hadn't been as relevant to their respective franchises for a while either (aside from the occasional appearance and big role here and there) and they both became the main love interests of the movies. Well, at least 2/3 of the movies in Jane' case :sweat:.

    Given all the influences from the Priest run that's been shown with MCU Panther, it makes sense to include Monica somehow :).

    No better place to film in order to get an authentic feel for an African nation :D.

    Well, they're looking into it. It's not a lock.
