Marvel's Black Panther Animated Series

Earlier today, I discovered that Marvel and BET developed a Black Panther animated series that has only been shown in Australia. The main character is voiced by Academt Award nominated actor Djimon Hounsou.

Did anyone else know about this series? Does anyone know when and where is going to air in the US?

It's on its way. I'll try to get you a date in the morning. Everyone over at BET is busy with the Haiti telethon tomorrow.

I really hope the entire show isnt done using Flash.

Also, I'd much rather see a Luke Cage series than BP.

Apparently it is a Motion comic style animation. I'm not happy about that too, but I'll wait to see it before judging.

That vid you posted looks cool. It also seems graphic so hopefully it's geared towards older viewers.
I never liked Black Panther wearing a cape though.

I wasn't a huge Motion Comic style fan but I just watched The Astonishing X-men on Hulu and it was pretty damn good. I'm also watching a Spider-woman series on Hulu. I'm more than willing to give the style more attention. That said, the 60's Marvel cartoons were pretty much the same style now that I think about it and I loved those.

Re: Marvel's Black Panther Animated Series

Animated "Black Panther" Debuts Next Wednesday

Official Press Release

Marvel Knights Animation is proud to announce Black Panther: Who Is The Black Panther?, a twelve-episode, weekly, all-new series debuting on iTunes, Xbox LIVE, Microsoft Zune and PlayStation®Network on June 23rd.

Inspired by the acclaimed graphic novel from respected filmmaker/producer Reginald Hudlin and legendary comic book artist John Romita Jr, Black Panther: Who Is The Black Panther? introduces viewers to the Black Panther, the warrior king of Wakanda, a technologically advanced nation in the heart of Africa. As outside forces conspire to plunder this proud nation, the Black Panther will face his greatest threats as he meets Klaw, the man who murdered his father.

“The positive responses to news of the show have been so overwhelming, it’s great to finally make the Black Panther series available to everyone,” said Hudlin. “Audiences get caught up on many levels – seeing John Romita Jr’s art come to life; the quality of the voice work by an award winning cast; the boldness of the politics, the music and humor. But see it for yourself!”

Romita Jr added, “The reaction by any person, upon viewing footage of a black panther, is universal: Awe. There is no more elegant a creature on the face of the planet. The creation of the character by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, in a turbulent political time, maintained that quality. Reggie Hudlin's updated version follows that and adds an amazing, cinematic flair to it. In my opinion, reading, and now viewing, the Black Panther series is much akin to witnessing a panther in person. Enjoy the elegance of the story, the elegance of the actors, their voices, their words, and....the imagery.”

This exciting series also features the voices of major celebrities including Academy Award-nominee Djimon Hounsou as Black Panther; Jill Scott as Storm, Kerry Washington as Princess Shuri; Alfre Woodard as both Dondi Reese and Queen Mother; Carl Lumbly as Uncle S’Yan; and comics legend Stan Lee in a special role.
