For me, there's no better pick out there for Black Panther than Tongayi Chirisa
His biggest US role to date was as Friday in NBC's Crusoe. Here is a clip reel from that role:
He fits Black Panther in the same way Hemsworth did for Thor. He has the right look, is the right age for a franchise, is African, and most importantly, is a good actor.
I agree. It needs to be done like Thor. Someone around 30, giving time to grow in sequels. Chirisa and Hodge are great choices IMO.
