As we told you earlier, Morris Chestnut is maybe sharing a little too much information when it comes to this top-secret role he’s in talks to play, which is none other than Black Panther. The actor’s been tweeting non-stop not-so-cryptic-hints towards his involvement in the film, but what he tweeted earlier was A LOT worse than anything that came before…

Not final. #BlackPanther may be in #avengers2 first. RT @jamaal91604133: @morris_chestnut Can’t wait to see this movie. #BlackPanther

The tweet has since been deleted (which isn’t particularly surprising), but a ton of news/geek sites have already picked up on the news You can’t get more reliable than the actor himself, so if the Wakandan king will be making an appearance in The Avengers 2 Chestnut would know.

What do you think? Do you want to see Black Panther join the ranks of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in The Avengers 2? Notice that he said it “wasn’t final,” so there’s a chance we could still be waiting to see him on the big screen by the time Phase III rolls around. Share your thoughts below!

UPDATE: So Chestnut has been tweeting again.

But this time it’s something different. The actor reveals that we all misunderstood his previous tweets and he is simply a fan interested in the character, but is flattered by the support from fans.


This can mean three things:

  • 1. He’s telling the truth and Mr Chestnut just has a very hype-inducing way of expressing his interest.
  • 2. He’s lying, and Marvel told him to STFU before he leaked anything else.
  • 3. He got Jason Momoa’d, which means he really isn’t in talks… Anymore.

So it looks like Black Panther may not be appearing in The Avengers 2 after all.
