Fan favorite marvel character Black Panther, could be heading to the big screen after all! The long-rumoured and highly anticipated movie doesn't seem far off, as Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios President of Production, has already expressed his interest in the project when asked by Blacktree TV;
“In terms of Black Panther, it’s absolutely in development, and when you have something as rich as Wakanda and [Black Panther's] backstory – and clearly, Vibranium’s been introduced in the universe already – I don’t know when it will be exactly but certainly we have plans to bring him to life someday.”

Could this be a legit photo ? Is the Black Panther finally heading to screens in the near future! With the inclusion of Vibranium already in the Marvel universe thanks to Captain Americas shield, it seems like all the right ingredients are there to add him in. Couple this with Jeremy Renners confirmation of more Avengers and even some new "good guys' in a recent interview with Net Entertainment News.
“I have to be pretty tight-lipped about [Age of Ultron], but what I can say is that all the Avengers are in it; even some new ones. Some new bad guys, and new good guys. I know I can actually be Clint Barton and Hawkeye in this one, and not be this sort of puppet for Loki this time, which I'm very happy about. It should be very, very fun.”

So what do you think ? Could it be legit, a possible post-credits scene at the end of Avengers: AOU introducing Black Panther for the next phase of installments? Or, as Jeremy Renner has confirmed, will he be one of the new Avengers?
