With Chadwick Boseman set to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the currently-filming Captain America: Civil War, we should be hearing about the director of the solo Black Panther film soon enough. While we’re still fired up over the possibility of Selma’s Ava DuVernay possibly taking the gig, another very interesting name has entered the fray.

When an actor signs on to play a superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they typically aren’t signing up for a single movie. They’re signing up for a whole bunch — sometimes as many as nine films — so Marvel can plan ahead for years, scoping out where a character can go over the course of several appearances. But contracts run out and some actors managed to finagle their way in without signing up for a bunch of movies in advance. So superhero movie fans always wonder just how many more times they’ll get to see Chris Evans play Captain America or Robert Downey Jr. play Iron Man. How many movies are left on their contract? What’s next?

Even though the upcoming third ‘Captain America’ movie is based on Marvel’s ‘Civil War’ mini-series, where the heroes of the Marvel Universe faced off with one another in a battle over their right to privacy, the ‘Civil War’ film still needs a villain for Chris Evans’ Cap and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man (and new addition Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman) to face off with as well. Although they didn’t reveal the identity of his character, Deadline reports that Daniel Bruhl will play the guy to pester the feuding Avengers.

At last week's big Marvel event, there were lots of things to be excited about, but the two biggest revelations were undoubtedly 'Captain Marvel' and 'Black Panther,' with the studio giving us a solo female superhero film and a film featuring a black superhero -- the latter to be played by Chadwick Boseman, who will hit the screen in 'Captain America: Civil War.' Boseman has been laying low since, but now he's making the rounds and speaking out about his recent casting. And although it's still years away, he promises that we haven't seen anything like what Marvel has in store with 'Black Panther.'
