Work with Marvel's rival? Why not?! Get those coins! 

This news comes on the heels of Marvel snubbing Roxane at the Black Panther premiere last month. You see, Roxane co-wrote “Black Panther: World of Wakanda” for Marvel Comics alongside Ta-Nehisi Coates and Yona Harvey in 2016. However, the series was cancelled in 2017 after releasing six issues.

Ta-Nehisi got an invite to the premiere, but Roxane and Yona did not. Roxane took to Twitter to express her feelings, saying her feelings were hurt, but she was still excited about the movie.





Let's see if this deal with DC Comics come intro fruition.

Speaking of Black Panther...


Looks like the Black Panther cast had plenty of fun behind-the-scenes while shooting the Marvel superhero film. Especially with Letitia Wright freestyling every chance she got.
