Noel Clarke Says Marvel Isn't Interested In Him For BLACK PANTHER
A number of actors have come out and campaigned for the roll of T'Challa/Black Panther, but according to Noel Clarke, don't expect to see him in the role any time soon.
After news broke a while back that a Black Panther movie was being developed at Marvel, actor after actor threw his name in for the title character. From Anthony Mackie, who will be portraying Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, to Leverage actor Aldis Hodge, many have let it be known that they would love a crack at T'Challa. Another actor who threw his name in the mix was Noel Clarke, but according to Clarke Marvel just flat-out doesn't want him. "They’re not interested, man. I’ve tried everything. I’ve offered to write the film, they’re not interested. Obviously I’d love to play the part, they’re not interested, he told DenOfGeek. Also back in 2009 Clarke tweeted that he would be interested in doing a Black Lightening or Supergirl movie for DC. However, DC apparently shot him down as well.
There has been no word on just exactly what Marvel is planning on doing with Black Panther. With the announcement that they were developing a movie most thought that it would occupy the release date that eventually went to Guardians of The Galaxy.
