Marvel's 'Black Panther' Circling Writer Joe Robert Cole For Gig!!

By Matt O'Bryant

What's up guys and gals,

It looks as though Marvel Studios has finally found their writer for the highly anticipated Black Panther comic book property set to star Chadwick Boseman as the title character.  Joe Robert Cole is said to be in negotiations to write the script, while the film has yet to secure a director for the big screen adaptation.  Get the details below from The Wrap.

According to TheWrap:

Joe Robert Cole (FX’s “American Crime Story”) is nearing a deal to write “Black Panther” for Marvel, TheWrap has exclusively learned. Marvel had no comment.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige is set to produce “Black Panther,” which will star Chadwick Boseman (“Get On Up”) as T’Challa, a.k.a. the titular superhero from the fictional African nation of Wakanda. Andy Serkis is also expected to reprise his role as Ulysses Klaw from “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” though his involvement remains unconfirmed.

While a recent report stated that F. Gary Gray is a contender to direct “Black Panther,” the truth is that there are no serious contenders at this stage — at least not anymore since Gray will be directing “Fast and Furious 8” — and the search is considered wide-open.
