Exciting as it was when it was announced earlier this year that Spider-Man would be coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the reveal also resulted in a schedule disruption for four of Marvel Studiosí upcoming projects.

Andy Serkis has what could wind up becoming a incredibly important role in the MCU.

Anthony Mackie has cemented his stance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since debuting in Captain America 2 as The Falcon. But before he was officially cast, he was campaigning hard to become Black Panther.
After many years of waiting, Black Panther is finally coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As was confirmed last October, the character - played by Chadwick Boseman - will be making his debut in Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: Civil War.

Now that Spider-Man is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we can expect a lot of change in the world of comic book movies. The first big alteration that has come as a result, however, is in the release dates of future Marvel movies.
Because Black Panther isnít being released until 2017, it will be awhile until we learn who the main players will be - but that isnít stopping Lance Reddick from cluing Marvel in on a role heíd like to play in the movie.
Chadwick Boseman may have recently won himself the coveted role of Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the 38-year-old actor doesnít have a Golden Globe or an Oscar under his belt. After playing James Brown in Get On Up, his performance was one of those that got snubbed. But heís not letting that get him down, because being a superhero is way better, according to him.

Most people are familiar with the standard operating procedure when it comes to auditions in Hollywood. An actor prepares a scene or is given pages of a script to work from, sits or stands in front of group of people (director, producers, casting director, etc.) in a room, and performs in hopes of being seen as the perfect fit for a particular character or film. This has been the process used by studios and filmmakers for decades - but it's apparently not the method used by the folks over at Marvel Studios.
Tony Starkís role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to get even bigger, and if Marvel is wise, theyíll make sure to include him in the Black Panther movie to show him traveling farther down his new path.
