The Selma director is the not only the first woman, but the first black woman to direct any Marvel film (Patty Jenkins backed out of director Thor: The Dark World)! The film is about Black Panther, the first black superhero in American comic books and the upcoming film will be the first time Marvel has portrayed a black superhero in a movie.
Chadwick Boseman, who is known for his amazing portrayal of James Brown in Get on Up is set to play Black Panther in the feature film.
No official confirmation from Ava just yet but we’re sure she won’t pass on the opportunity. Congrats Ava! Black woman doing big things and setting a great example!
