Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje In Talks To Play "Black Panther"!

Lost's Mr Eko and star of "GI Joe" has met with Marvel to discuss playing the African warrior-king.

"We're talking to Marvel about 'Black Panther,'" Akinnuoye-Agbaje told MTV News. "This is the first round, so you know, hopefully they'll look at 'G.I. Joe' and see the potential. But it's about time we have a black superhero, isn't it?"

"He's from a fictional village in Africa and the timing is so right for that kind of character to come through," he said. "And while I'm in my prime, this is the time. We've got [U.S. President Barack] Obama, now we need something on screen to represent, so... 'Panther,' man."

This guy is a great actor as fans of either "Lost" or prison drama "Oz" can tell you. I think he would make a great Black Panther. Lets hope this happens.
