Sources at the MCU Exchange have reported that Ava DuVernay (Selma) has been picked by Marvel to direct BLACK PANTHER. Starring Chadwick Bosworth as the titular character and taking place in the fictitious nation of Wakanda, BLACK PANTHER will premiere in 2018 after AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.

DuVernay has been heavily rumored to be a front runner for the film and it seems that has finally been decided on by the powers that be at Marvel. Having directed the critically acclaimed, golden globe, academy award nominated Selma, her pedigree in filmmaking will be welcome from the critics.

With BLACK PANTHER showing up in Marvel’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR next year, expect a lot more to pop up regarding this film over the next few months.
