Terrorism is never cool


If I was Marvel I would want Chiwetel Ejiofor for the role.

If Idris Elba hadn't already played Heimdall (WHY???) I think he also would have been perfect for T'Challa.

How about this guy to play T'Challa?

From what I read, he's interested in the role.

If Marvel does the Black Panther it should be played by an African Actor. Not some teenage American Rapper. The character has too much "regalness" for that. My choice
Djimon Hounsou
He played Midnight in Constantine, as well as having the lead in Amistad his break through role.

Second Choice:
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

He played Mr. Eko in Lost. I am mean seriously he is suppose to be a king, whats next the Bebs try out for Wildchild because he is from Canada????

I know I'm going to get a lot of hell for this but here goes.

With T'Challa I would prefer a non-American black actor preferably one from Africa or Europe. Someone that seems "classy". Not an American black actor that has a bit of um...how to put it...urban swagger. Someone I could buy as kingly and respectable. Someone who you could actually believe is a leader of one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world.


I certainly don't want any rappers, comedians or no talent male models (looking at you Tyrese) who mug for the camera.

There are a lot of great American black actors I just can't think of one who seem classy enough to be right for this role. Denzel maybe but he's over 50. Forest Whitaker is 50 and I just couldn't buy him as T'Challa anyways because he's kind of portly.

Probably a poor choice of words for a company based in NYC. Anyway...

Most black Americans are of mixed heritage. I'm not sure casting an African American with a fairly light complexion makes sense when the character is an African prince. Of course with Wakanda being a fictional country with no defined location in Africa, there is some wiggle room with race.
