He was in 42, Draft Day and Get on Up.

I've seen all 3 and I thought he did good work for the material he was given.

42 is a pretty by the numbers and predictable bio pic.

Draft Day he plays a member of the Cleveland Browns. It's a really minor part.

I thought he was fantastic in Get on Up. Really electrifying performance.

+1
I always imagined Black Panther with a semi-regal British accent for some reason. He should not have an American accent.

Chewitel Ejifor would have been perfect.

That's the baddie I always think of when it comes to Panther. Mostly cuz of the Vibranium.
wasn't the Hulk battle filmed in South Africa?

I wouldn't be surprised to see BP show up as an Easter egg in AoU.

I'm not sure how much you'd want. If they take a cue from the comics. He's royalty in Wakanda, the title is passed on normally, and the Panther is the protector of Wakanda. That's all I ever knew for the longest time and it worked for me. The guy pretty much just proves himself immediately to where having an origin was cool but not really needed to appreciate him. His powers are given to him. Is the panther god still an origin of that?

Wakanda is an isolated country. No contact with other countries. It's pretty advanced in comparison to even the US. He's kind of a whole package deal that you get where he's going by the way he presents himself.

No, not even close. They have nothing at all in common, other than both having a "cat" in their name.

Yes, it really is getting out of hand.

Why couldn't they get Sharlto Copley for the role?

re: Black Panther (7/6/18) S: Chadwick Boseman

There were a number of names banded around for the role, but not surprised that Marvel chose a lesser known actor. They like to keep it cheap when possible and i think that they truly look at actors with the potential to do justice to a role rather than just someone who is cheap and is available.

I love the look of the suit. It is very close to the comics and really looks cool. Hopefully the finished version in the movie will be close, if not exact, to it.

So i guess the villain for the movie will be Andy Serkis as Klaw.

Klaw is rumored for AoU but we still don't know if that guy is Klaw or not. Looks like Klaw....

Yeah, looks like he might transition to Klaw between AoU and Black Panther. He could be a great villain.

I've always thought of Black Panther as the African version of Daredevil. They've played up his royalty a lot more in recent times.

I kind of dug it when his sister took the mantle. I wonder if she'll be in it too.

Didn't Black Panther stand in for Murdock one time when Murdock was gone? I know Iron Fist has, but I think Black Panther has too.

He did. I stopped reading at that point cuz I was too busy.

Yes, Black Panther used to be pretty frequently set in NYC. He's been a fill-in for Daredevil at times.

Really. You can have a black Johnny Storm, but not a white Black Panther??

So who should direct? Justin Lin? Matt Reeves? Neil Blomkamp? Doug Liman? Antoine Fuqua? Steve Mcqueen? Len Wiseman?

Same here, his movies have a nice balance of action and drama, and often feature beautiful scenery, it'd be interesting to see what he could do with a Marvel film.
