With it looking likely that Marvel Studios is moving forward with a Black Panther movie, how about Denzel Washington up for the role?

In a recent Reddit QnA, the actor mentioned the character when asked about playing Luke Cage or Green Lantern.

Didn't they do the Green Lantern? With Ryan Reynolds! Too late! Green Lantern Returns? Isn't there a comic book, the Black Panther or something?

Cinema Blend then caught up with Washington and asked further about it; however, don't keep your hopes up.

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."

Stan Lee recently seemingly confirmed a Black Panther film and many are expecting the character to appear in The Avengers 2. In addition, Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige mentioned Black Panther is one of the most requested Marvel characters for a movie.

Denzel Washington can be seen in "The Equalizer," in theaters September 26th. Check out the trailer:
