Question: If a Black actor was cast to voice either Groot or Rocket Raccoon in GOTG, does that eliminate him from Black Panther?
Let's also not forget Black actors who won't play the role due to age or too much money.
I wouldn't think so. Afterall, Jonathan Rhys-Davis played Gimli and the voice of Treebeard in LOTR. So I would say the same could happen in the MCU. Which is why Paul Bettany was my first pick for Quicksilver, even though he's JARVIS.
