Fresh of the press is news of Brazilian actor Raw Leiba in talks with Marvel studios to play either Luke Cage or Eric Killmonger in the upcoming Black Panther novie. This comes straight from Leiba’s publicist who contacted us by mail.
He has a certain dead ringer look for Killmonger.
In that the news came from a publicist, it could be legit, or it could be an attempt to raise the profile of her client so casting agencies and producers find him more interesting. Without confirmation or denial from Marvel, there's no telling.
Seems that Marvel quietly warmed up development on the Wakandan's story, and a Luke Cage story has been a cause celebre for some actors. Will we see these films on the silver screen? Until you're sitting in the theatre, it's all just an interesting conversation.
