Is Denzel Washington Too Old to Play Black Panther?
If we're to http://movieweb.com/black-panther-movie-stan-lee/believe the ramblings of Stan Lee, Marvel is gearing up to introduce Black Panther into the Marvel Cinematic Universe soon. And while actors such as Djimon Hounsou, Chadwick Boseman and John Boyega have all thrown their hat in the ring to play the character, one man stands above the rest as a true legend. And that is Denzel Washington. Sadly, he may be too old to take on the role.
Denzel Washington recently conducted a Reddit AMA on Friday for his upcoming action thriller The Equalizer, where he joked about the idea of possibly playing T'Challa on the big screen. CinemaBlend later caught up with the actor to get his real take on possibly joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and if it happens, it will probably be in a role similar to Robert Redford in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
This is what he had to say:
"I'm probably getting too old. They didn't make the Black Panther yet, though, did they? I heard that they have been talking about it. That's cool."
Do you think Denzel Washington is too old to play Black Panther? At 59, he would be the oldest member of the Avengers, with Robert Downey Jr. currently the oldest at 49, and Elizabeth Olsen the youngest at 25. Would it be interesting to have an older superhero? Ten years older at 69, Michael Douglas is playing Hank Pym in Ant-Man after all.
