T'Challa, the king of Wakanda, ingests an herb that both links him to his god, and provides superhuman strength.

So PCP, then?

Sweet Christmas!!

Wakanda is supposed to be this small, but super-scientific country in Africa. I'd retcon the thing and make T'Challa the first black super-soldier.

They didn't even mention his sister Shuri who is the current Black Panther.

Luke Cage quotes about Black Panther?

I'm just leaving this thread now.

PLEASE for the love of god, DO NOT GIVE HIM THE STUPID AS HELL MINI-CAPE.

I've liked the newer Panther from the Avengers cartoon, he's worn the stupid cape all of once I believe, and that was while he was sitting on his throne in Wakanda, not in Manhattan punching Baron Zemo.
 
2012-06-06 02:24:55 AM
Just as long as they don't play up Wakanda being "Better than Every Other Country and have Done Everything YoU White Devils did but earlier".

I would say Idris Elba but that can't happen because he was cast in Thor. He would have been a good choice.

I liked BP and Moon Knight as much as the next kid back in the day, but I don't think either of the characters would fly with a mainstream audience precisely because they're both too much like Batman.

Ray Stevenson, also in Thor was the Punisher in War Zone.

Chris Evans is Cap and Johnny Storm.

So that's not an issue. What is an issue is that Idris Elba is too old to play T'Challa. They've been going with the Ultimates line for the films, which means T'Challa will still be a young prince, only recently taken the throne after T'Chaka died.

I liked Idris Elba as Heimdal, but reading up on Black Panther, I suspect someone younger, shorter, and more nimble would be better.

Wesley Snipes has been trying to get the rights for some time.

I REALLY want to see a Black Panther movie. Great character, and some great stories to be told.

White would be an excellent candidate for a Luke Cage movie. Which I would likewise put good money, American money, down to see.

Good money, American money? Now I am confused......

Are they going to include his vibranium-soled boots that allow him to jump off 30-foot buildings without chattering his knees?

They've already doubled up on actors, Captain America and The Human Torch were the same actor.

Well, they've created the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This only includes those movies produced by Marvel Studios. Fantastic Four was produced by 21st Century Fox. Punisher War Zone was Lionsgate. However, Idris Elba was already in a Marvel Studios film, I find it unlikely they would use him. He would be perfect though.

Since the creation of the "Marvel Cinematic Universe," I've thought he would make an excellent Black Panther.

War Zone and the FF movies are not Marvel Films pictures.

I think he'd be great. Decent actor, believable as a badass, and as an added bonus, he's black.

Let's make him white, for diversity's sake. Changing race/gender/orientation is all the rage these days.

I'm sure it'll be at least as good as Green Lantern...

Please, just don't make this movie.

Green Lantern wasn't Marvel.. also wasn't too bad, but needed a better script.

*insert name of young black actor here*

Seriously, this will never happen. There is no way to present it which will not be criticised as being racist, and they won't get buy-in for it. Which is a shame, because it is a pretty decent storyline as far as Marvel storylines go. But there are just too many other characters that they can present without dealing with all the baggage of racism. As I said...it is a shame that we are still this mired by it.
