Damion Poitier talks Thanos, Black Panther and possibly coming back in Star Trek 3

Actor and Stunt Coordinator Damion Poitier talks about his love for comics and appearing in 'The Avengers'


Stunt Coordinator and Martial Artist turned Actor Damion Poitier was at OnyxCon Five 2013 over the weekend in Atalanta to support African-America Comics and superheros. During the interview he talks about his life growing up reading comics, fighting Captain Kirk and Mr. Sulu on Star Trek (2009)...then reveals a little about his time as Thanos in Marvels The Avengers (2012)
Damon came off as an extremely humble and chill actor. He started in the industry as a stunt coordinator and as a martial artist. Went on to talk about reading comics at a very young age. He joked about being the first Star Trek villain to punch both Mr. Sulu and Captain James Kirk in 2009's Star Trek.

He went on to talk about African-Americans in the Hollywood industry's and comics. Was also revealed to the audience in the interview he was Marvel's Big baddie Thanos in the post credits scene of The Avengers. The real question is will he be back as Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy and the rest of Marvel Phase II? We dont know but he acted very humble in reprising the role when the audience supported the idea of him coming back.

Then officially announces the name of his upcoming graphic novel named Skyjack.

He also reveals that while he played a Romulin that dies in Star Trek 1. He did almost came back as a separate Klingon Character in Star Trek into Darkness. Then revealed that if the Klingons have a larger role in Star Trek 3 he will most likely come back but then back tracked and said there has been no meetings just wishful thinking. 

During the Fan Q&A section of the show a fan asked when we should see Marvel make Black Panther or Static hit the big screen. Poitier reiterated that Marvel is literally dieing to make a Black Panther movie but just aren't seeing the numbers that would risk a multimillion dollar project like that just yet...
