“I don’t know what I’d do without her,” said director Anthony Hemingway of the actress who plays Carol Danvers on the upcoming “Black Panther” television series.
“I’m glad I got to work with her and I’m glad she got to do this.”
Hemingway and executive producer Chadwick Boseman will continue to work together on “Black Panthers” in a new series called “Black Heat,” which will premiere on the AMC cable network in 2017.
“Blackheat” will feature Bosemen, who co-wrote the script with Hemingways.
“Black Panther,” based on a Marvel Comics character created by Stan Lee, follows the life of a young African-American woman who takes on the mantle of the Black Panther and fights crime alongside the likes of “Black Widow,” the female version of Spider-Woman.
The series is produced by Marvel Television.
The series will focus on the first time Carol Danver has encountered her former mentor, a billionaire named King Namor, who turns out to be a ruthless and manipulative killer.
“We’re just really thrilled to have the opportunity to work again with the wonderful cast of characters who are such integral to the series,” Hemingwill said.
“It’s just so cool to be part of this story and the passion that these wonderful actors have for the story,” Hemmingway said.
“And I’m so happy for them.”
Danvers will be seen as a pivotal character in the upcoming TV adaptation of the novel “The Walk,” written by J.K. Rowling.
Rowling will also serve as a producer for the series, and the project has been confirmed for a 2017 debut.
