Default Re: EVERYTHING Black Panther - Part 2

I am FAR from an expert on BP, but I do find him totally awesome, and when they make his film, I hope they avoid the same fatal flaw that was done on an old TV-Movie-turned series... M.A.N.T.I.S.

In the premier TV movie, the main character was a paralyzed African scientist that created a suit that allowed him to walk and fight crime...with the aid of his 2 young African assistants. However when it became a series, the 2 African assistants were replaced by an English scientist who I think was created more with the breakthrough in the technology to develop the suit...this greatly changed the dynamic and it turned me off to the show completely.

It was a perfect opportunity to display Africans being intelligent but execs weren't comfortable with that and had to "diverse" the cast...it really took something away from it.

I would HATE to see the same thing happen to Black Panther.
