BLACK PANTHER Fan-Cast
Hit the jump to check out my cool fan-cast!
Initial Thoughts: I think Black Panther could be the next big film franchise to come out of Marvel, with the first film being set entirely in Wakanda it would give the Universe and even more global feel to it. The end movie would have T'Challa arrive in NYC to start is work their and be met by one of the current Avengers for recruitment!
T'Challa is heir to the centuries-old ruling dynasty of the African kingdom Wakanda, and ritual leader of its Panther Clan. His mother died in childbirth, earning him the enduring hatred of his adopted elder brother, Hunter, who also resented T'Challa for supplanting him in the royal household. Hunter would become the White Wolf, leader of the Hatut Zeraze (Dogs of War), the Wakandan secret police. Their father T'Chaka remarried, but his second wife, Ramonda, seemingly ran away with another man when T'Challa was eight. When T'Challa was a teenager, T'Chaka was murdered by Klaw, a Dutchman seeking to plunder the rare Vibranium metal unique to Wakanda, but T'Challa used Klaw's own weapon to maim him and drive him off. T'Challa studied in Europe and America, then underwent ritual trials in Wakanda - including defeating his uncle S'yan, the existing Black Panther - to win the heart-shaped herb, enhancing his abilities and linking him spiritually to the Panther God Bast. Now Wakanda's ruler as the Black Panther, he disbanded and exiled the Hatut Zeraze and continued transforming his country into a high-tech wonderland. When tribal war broke out, T'Challa restored peace by condemning the Jabari tribe, and by picking Dora Milaje ("Adored Ones") from rival tribes to serve as his personal guard and ceremonial wives-in-training.
Taught by his father to think two steps ahead of enemies and three steps ahead of friends, T'Challa saw the world's super-beings as potential threats to Wakanda. Inviting the Fantastic Four to visit him, he forced them into a series of tests, then allied with them against a returning Klaw. He also joined the American-based Avengers to spy on them from within, but soon came to regard them as true friends and staunch allies
Black Panther/T'Challa:Laz Alonso
Black Panther is an ideal movie to introduce and star a lot of African American actors, the role of BP would be the most critical one. I was watching Avatar the other night and was impressed by the actor who played the Navi' character Tsu'tey. He has the acting skills that could make for a great Black Panther.
He has long been a fan favorite for the role but I think he is getting a little to old for the main Black Panther but could still play the Black Panther character of T'Chaka who is father to T'Challa and passes the BP mantle to him.
She is the step-mother to T'Challa and would be a power house in this film as she is in every role she plays. She gets kidnapped half way through the film so it would make for an emotional segment.
The uncle of T'Challa and some what agonist of the film he would be and advisary to T'Challa fighting him for the throne and being BP for a little while.
Lauren London would be featured in this small but important cameo role at the beginning of the film. She would play T'Challas birth mother who dies in child birth this would set off the film and keep the pace going.
Ororo Munroe:Keke Palmer
Ororo Munroe would encounter T'Challa on his journey quest during the 2nd half of the film she would be seen as a young teen girl her and Keke has been starring in some great films lately and this would be a break out role for her.
Ulysses Klaw:Ralph Fiennes
He is responsible for killing T'Chaka with his weapons in the film and causing a chain of events that set T'Challa out on his journey to be the one true Black Panther, They would have a final battle and encounter at the climax of the film.
Easter Eggs-"Avengers 2 recruitment"
The end of Black Panther would have him arriving in NYC in a post credit scene and Hawkeye would be the first person that Black Panther would come in contact with there by recruiting him for the Avengers setting up Avengers 2.
