Chadwick Boseman Cast Marvel’s First African-American Superhero

Boseman signed on to do five films as “Black Panther.” Marvel also announced a “Captain Marvel” movie for 2018, which will mark the studio’s first stand-alone female superheroine — something Marvel fans have been burning their comic books for reports Deadline.
