Ever since Spider-Man and X-Men proved how popular and profitable comic book adaptations can be, the studios have rushed to satiate our demand to watch caped crusaders fight. And this year saw no less than 9 major superhero films hit theatres.
Sasha Morfaw (Black Panther), Jimmy Jean-Louis (Claws, Heroes), Sufe Bradshaw (Veep), Sydelle Noel (GLOW), and Peter Mensah (300) will star in the indie film Rise from first-time feature director Maritte Go.
The feisty writer, editor and publisher was responsible for such iconic characters as Spider-Man, the X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther and the Fantastic Four
Black Panther just hit theaters in February, but it already feels like an integral part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
But things could've been different if it went Marvel's way, with the studio apparently wanting a British accent, according to the film's star Chadwick Boseman.
