Chadwick Boseman Plays Coy When Asked About 'Black Panther'; Hints at 'Green Lantern'

Around May of last year around the time 42 was debuting the guys over at Latino-Review got word that Marvel Studios was seriously considering the star Chadwick Boseman for the role in an eventually Black Panther film. Then everything went silent on the project up until the premiere of Thor: The Dark World when Marvel head Kevin Feige assured fans Black Panther was 100% being seriously considered for a feature film.

Now spoke with the actor about the future of black superheros on screen. Of course they ended up asking if he would play Black Panther if Marvel Studios needed him...And he straight up played the "I don't know anything" game all Marvel actors seem to do:
Could you see yourself playing Black Panther?
Chadwick Boseman: I could see myself doing anything in terms of comic book, action, or anything like that. Black Panther, in particular, I’m not going to answer that.

If not, then which character?
CB: Let me put to you this way. If it’s character driven, I’ll do it. As long as it’s character driven, I would love to do it. If it’s just you in a suit and you with powers, then it doesn’t interest me, no matter how big it is. As long as it’s character driven, I’m totally into it. If they could figure out how to do Black Panther and make it fit the original or adapt to the times we’re in now and be new and innovative and be character driven and has the sense of what the comic book is supposed to be, but not bound by it, then yes, of course, I would want to do it.
He did go onto ask Black Film if the audience wants a Black Panther film which they replayed "Yes" then he asked "What about Green Lantern?" but before they could answer the interview was over. Does he know something in both the Marvel and DC camps? He seems to be a sought after actor after his role in 42 and the upcoming James Brown biopic.
