A movie about a nation of blacks should be all black.  At least the residents of the nation.  I'd be annoyed if they shoehorns whites or asians in there just because.  The same way I get annoyed when they change the races of other people for no reason other than to do it.


But I still say Tony Todd would have been a great Black Panther.

I will never understand how that lady ever passed for black for so long.

African-Americans tend to accept anyone with even a small amount of African blood as "black". She can't pass for full blooded or even half, but with her disguise on she can pass for quarter or eighth.

It also likely helped that the position she strove for is more work than profit. No one expects someone to fraud their way into charity-work. What she did was the equivalent of making up a huge con for the privilege of serving food at a homeless shelter.

Maybe Killmonger or Man-Ape?

Todd's got a lot of that theatrical menace going on.

if Shaun King gets accepted as black then it's not hard to see how Rachel passes. I mean, drop both in South Africa and see which one gets tortured to death first.

Dijmon Housou should have been T'Cha-whatever (The Elder).

I don't think they were gonna waste the budget on his pay when they were gonna kill him off fast. And that he's appeared in GOTG too. A waste too, since they could've made use of his talents more

I can see it. He's got the perfect voice for Killmonger. And he's got some decent size to him.

Exactly, he's a big dude. Perfect for an antagonist against Tchalla

It's strange Elba's career hasn't quite kicked off yet.

A couple starring roles in straight to dvd flicks but nothing on the big screen.

Given that Elba is a Viking now, I only think it's fair Emma Stone play one of BPs bodyguards, only fair.

Yeah Dark Tower seems to be his upcoming break as a leading star.

But it's been a good 4-5 years since Pacific Rim, Thor 2 & Prometheus.

That's a significant gap of time if you're being touted as the next big star in HollyWood.

He's bigger in the UK than the US.
