Previously, actor Chadwick Boseman, who portrayed Jackie Robinson and James Brown in breakout performances, was linked to the role of Black Panther. However, it appears that John Boyega wants to throw his hat into the ring of potential casting choices. With Marvel's SDCC panel just a few, short days away, is Boyega having a layover in San Diego first before stopping at Wakanda?
Other actors speculated for the role in the past include Chiwetel Ejiofor, Morris Chestnut, Mehcad Brooks and Aldis Hodge. If Boyega doesn't strike your fancy, who would you like to see as the leader of Wakanda?
