Story Talks Black Panther
More Marvel heroes in FF's future?
by IGN Staff

May 8, 2007 - Tim Story, director of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and its big-screen predecessor, has had his fun with Dr. Doom and the Sentinel of the Spaceways, but now he may be searching the Marvel library for more characters to introduce in a possible third film in the FF franchise.

Who might we see in Fantastic Four 3? One possibility appears to be Black Panther, who first appeared in Fantastic Four vol. 1, #52 in 1966. A film based on Black Panther, long championed by Wesley Snipes (Snipes had been expected to play the character until he became so deeply entrenched in the Blade franchise), has struggled to make its way to the big screen. It wouldn't be that difficult, however, to give the character a supporting part to play in a FF sequel.

Story recently told the LA Times, "I've got to tell you, to get the Fantastic Four and turn it into a franchise, the first thing I thought was, 'Will I get the Silver Surfer'? Or someone like Black Panther, who was introduced in their book, get Djimon Hounsou and go do it?' But there are so many other great villains and stories - I feel like I hit the jackpot."

Is Story really looking at Black Panther? If so, we think Hounsou is a stellar choice. Would you include Black Panther in Fantastic Four 3, and what other characters would you want to see show up if another sequel is made? Send us an email with your ideas.

Black Panther needs some movie status. I don't think a solo movie would go that well for him considering all of the other Marvel flops like Daredevil, Punisher, and Hulk. Of course I know it would all depend on the story and writer but Black Panther is a Fantastic Four character. Let's put him in FF3 and enjoy the ride. I can't wait to see Wakanda on the big screen.
