    This isn't about if you want her in a BP movie or not. The fact is she is part of the BP mythology and it's more likely than not that she'll end up in his movie. In any case, this thread is for casting suggestions.

    To kick things off...

    Susan Kelechi Watson

    Nicole Beharie

    Keesha Sharp

    Teyonah Parris

    Kerry Wahington

    Tika Sumpta

    Kylie Bunbury

    Antonia Thomas

    Gugu Mbatha-Raw

    Yaya Dacosta

    Aja Naomi King

    I say we get a talented, beautiful, unknown blacktress and make her an overnight sensation.

    If not then Damaris Lewis.

    So we can rule out Teyonah Parris as she's just been cast as Monica Rambeau.

    Naomie Harris is my first pick. If it's someone younger than Harris (who is 43) I would pick....Gugu Mbatha Raw who is 36 right now.

    Definitely no to Gugu. I don't think we need and not do I want to see another light skinned/Bi-racial actress for the character that's supposed to be darker skinned.

    Now that Disney/Marvel can use the former Fox characters, I am hoping they will be slowly introduced through out the MCU and then at some point come together as the X-Men and then the new X-Men. Have Storm in a Panther film, maybe mention Colossus in the Black Widow film, etc. - follow the Civil War model of how Panther and Spidey were introduced...
