Chadwick Boseman, the actor who has played major icons like James Brown and Jackie Robinson, may be preparing to fill the shoes of another hero-- However this time, his role would be completely fictional.

Chad Boseman is known for his powerful acting ability, and becoming great public figures on the big screen. In his latest flick, "Get On Up", he plays the legendary performer and Godfather of soul, James Brown. The film, out today, has received great reviews and has had even better promo.

During one of his promotional tour stops, he visited "The Breakfast Club" morning show in New York City to discuss how the movie came together, but was caught off guard when Charlamagne asked him if there was truth to the rumor that he would be cast as the T'Challa in Marvel's rumored "Black Panther" movie. Through a wide grin, changing his position, he replied, "Ahhh, I don't know anything about that... Until the contract is signed, I don't know." But, from his nervous disposition, the rumors of the film and his role in it may be true.

Watch the interview, here:

Reportedly, "Best Man Holiday" actor Morris Chesnut also threw his hat in the ring, to play mainstream media's first African American superhero as well. So far, no official reports have been published by the Marvel company, leaving fans like Charlamagne anxious until more solid news appears.
