Chadwick Boseman Signs Five Picture Deal With Marvel

Chadwick-BosemanThe new member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be around a while. According to Deadline, Chadwick Boseman has signed a five picture deal with the studio to portray the Black Panther.

The deal is said to begin with Captain America: Civil War and to include Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2. Throw in a Black Panther solo film in 2017 and you only have one more movie in the deal… likely a Black Panther sequel if the first film does well.

During the announcement yesterday when asked about casting of Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel, Kevin Feige said that there would be director and writer announcements before casting. They announced Boseman because he's going to appear in Civil War which has its writers and directors. Since we don't have a Captain Marvel then its safe to assume that she won't be making her first appearance until at least Guardians of the Galaxy 2 but more likely Avengers: Infinity War Part 1.
