Ejiofor and Elba linked to superhero film 'Black Panther'

POSSIBLE SUPERHEROES: Elba, left and Ejiofor (PA)

MARVEL SUPERHERO Black Panther is set to come to the big screen and top black British stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Idris Elba have been tipped to play the character with extraordinary powers.

Reports suggest the two actors, along with American stars Chadwick Boseman and Michael B Jordan, are in line for the leading role in Black Panther.

Chiwetel may be the favourite for the part considering how high his stock has risen following the release of Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave in which he plays a free man kidnapped into slavery.

The role has landed him an Oscar nomination for best actor.

Other reports indicate Boseman could be the best-suited for the part due to his status as a young, up and coming actor.

Meanwhile, Elba is already a fixture in the Marvel universe having starred in the Thor films as Heimdall.

Black Panther has not yet been given an official release date, but it is widely rumoured the story of T’Challa, who is the alter ego of Black Panther, will come out to superhero movie fans.
