BLACK PANTHER: John Boyega Says He's Booking A Flight To Wakanda

Is actor John Boyega, breakout star of Attack the Block and lead in J.J. Abrams upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII set to play Black Panther for Marvel Studios? Check out the hint from Boyega himself after the jump.


 
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?
