The internet can be a dangerous terrain for movie rumors. You have to take everything with an entire bag of salt.
So prepare the salt: Morris Chestnut has hinted via Twitter that Black Panther may show up in The Avengers 2 and the he may be in the running to play him.
Chestnut's post, which has since been deleted, read, "It's time to get familiar with the Black Panther character!" He later wrote and also deleted, in response to a fan's tweet, "Not final. #BlackPanther may be in #avengers2 first. RT @jamaal91604133: @Morris_Chestnut Can't wait to see this movie. #BlackPanther"
Yes, this information came from Twitter, and yes the posts were subsequently deleted, but it seems that Chestnut, who will appear later this year in Kick-Ass 2, may be privvy to some inside information about the film that will cap off Marvel Phase 2.
Stay tuned for more as the story unfolds.
