Marvel’s already hired someone to work on a Black Panther script, so at some point there will hopefully be a Black Panther movie. I’m pretty excited about that prospect, he’s one of my favorite Marvel characters.
So I tried to draw what he could maybe look like in a film. It’s kinda not really my forte but I gave it my best shot. Wakanda is really technologically advanced and BP is a genius and he also utilizes stealth and agility, so I tried to give him a high-tech ninja sort of look. I imagine he wears a helmet that has night vision, infrared, and other useful display modes. Gave him little ninja shoes too, cause those are cool.
As for actors, in my mind the perfect candidate is Chiwetel Ejiofor
Watch him in Red Dust to hear his accent as he plays a South African politician.
Watch him in Serenity as a stoic highly skilled deadly sword-weilding assassin.
Watch him in Redbelt as a noble jiu-jitsu expert who fights for honor.
Watch him in just about anything he’s been in to see him be a brilliant actor. He just has a distinguished charm to him that seems very regal to me. He’s worked with Joss Whedon too, so I’m just going to cross my fingers.
