    Then I wonder if Ramonda has been cast yet? Because from the looks of it it looks like T'Chaka has been cast

    I must say it will be missing something for me as I always wanted them as the power couple in the MCU. No one else really fits that bill. Their is no other royalty to counterbalance his.
    Storm honestly looks to be getting a far better treatment in the next film than any other.

    I've always preferred Mensah as S'yan because in my ideal BP film, the trial of ritual combat between T'Challa and S'yan would be a major action scene, after which his uncle would fall back and be a trusted and valued advisor.

    Mensah has the acting chops to do the latter and is great at action to do the former.

    Darn. Well now that we know T'Chaka was already cast, he would be a good choice of S'yan too.

    Jude Law : Hunter

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Angela Basset: Ramonda

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Quinton Jackson : M'Baku

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And since Coogler is sure to find a spot for MBJ,

    Michael B. Jordan : Erik Killmonger

    I wouldn't be surprised if some of the cast from Beasts of No Nation is in Black Panther.

    Because they both happen to be stories of Africans?

    Too small of a role for Denzel.

    T'Challa will need a mentor, and Zuri seems like the best fit. If they could get Redford, John C. Rielly and others for smaller roles, surely Denzel would be down for a recurring supporting character?

    And at the same time...too big of a role, heh heh. I know movies don't follow the comics but I think Zuri should be a huge guy just like in the comics. Michael Clarke Duncan would've been a no-brainer, R.I.P.

    He would only do it if it was recurring.

    Zuri would hopefully be recurring.

    The only supporting characters Denzel has played in the last couple of decades were in the two movies he directed. I wouldn't hold my breath on him suddenly doing this.

    Denzel as Zuri would be an incredible waste imho. If you can get him to join the MCU, he should be Blue Marvel. A legit superhero. Redford is out of the blockbuster headlining phase of his career; That's not an apples-to-apples comparison.

    Denzel hasn't done a true ensemble in forever, he's a lead or co-lead. And he's never played the kind of supporting player Zuri should be. I mean, would that character even have 30 lines of dialogue? C'mon.

    It's just not a realistic get, imho.

    TLDR: +1 w Dr. Evil. Too small a part for him.

    Instead of Denzel for Zuri, how about Denzel for Moses Mangum? It could be where Claw is working for him (because it's Denzel).

    That is why I suggested David Oyelowo as Zuri
