Black Panther Announced: Chadwick Boseman Joins Marvel Universe

At the Marvel Studio event we attended earlier today, there were many announcements. But the one that came front and center was when Marvel head Kevin Feige announced that a Black Panther movie was indeed happening and that it would arrive on November 3, 2017.

Then, after Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr took the stage, more on that in a few, they introduced the man who will play Black Panther -- 42 and Get On Up star Chadwick Boseman.

Boseman could not have been a better choice to join Marvel's team in their Phase Three cinematic world.

After revealing that Captain America 3 would be subtitled Civil War, which we thought would happen, Downey and Evans asked Boseman to pick a side.

Boseman was quite political with his response. "Black Panther kind of does his own thing," Boseman said.  "I'm just blessed to be here and be a part of the Marvel world and make some magic."

For more on this world, watch The Avengers online.
