Rumors of a Black Panther flick from Marvel have been swirling about for AGES, and one name has popped up again for T'Challa.

It’s that of 42 actor Chadwick Boseman, who was, a year ago, apparently on a very short list to headline Marvel’s Black Panther. The actor was at the premiere of his newest flick — Draft Day — when he was asked by the folks at BlackTree TV if the Black Panther rumors were true.

You can check out his answer starting at 3:33:

OK, so Boseman doesn’t quite confirm his involvement in a possible Black Panther flick (Marvel has yet to greenlight the film), but hey, he doesn’t deny it, either! Instead, we get a smile and a bit of a laugh, which can be considered as a dead giveaway that there've at least been talks, and possibly a meeting between Marvel and Boseman.

What do you guys think? Would Chadwick Boseman make a good Black Panther?
