BLACK PANTHER the movie.


It looks like Marvel are renewing plans to put the Black Panther on to the big screen. It's early days and there's no word yet on what actors could be up for the role of T'Challa king of Wakanda but with Idris Elba appearing in Thor I would say he would be a good bet ( as with Ryan Reynolds and Chris Evans it's not unusual for Marvel films to use the same actor for two different heroes and before any one gets they're fan-boy girdles in a twist I'm not getting Marvel & DC mixed up Reynolds played Hannibal King in Blade3 then Deadpool in Wolverine.) It's difficult to predict how they will choose to portray him (they seem to have enough trouble deciding that in the comics) but I hope that as with other male African American super hero's they avoid casting Hip-Hop artists (Sicky Fingaz, Blade the series) sports stars (Shaquille O'Neil, Steel) or worse Will Smith.

Here's an article.
