    Quite rightr



      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.

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.
