As I think Viggo would be a good Klaw, he's one of my top choices for Doctor Strange.
I hate to sound like a bandwagoner, but I think that Benedict Cumberbatch would be an excellent Klaw. His deep voice would probably match really well with the effects of sound that he uses in the comics. If not him then John Pyper-Feguson would be great. He played the main villain in Alphas and the final season of Burn Notice, and he has a way as coming across very convincing to his cause. That's how I imagine Klaw. He's a guy who is greedy, but as a scientist he feels that he is doing the world a favor by taking the vibranium.
I'm not sure if I'd want a British guy playing Klaw. I love Cumberbatch as an actor, he was a fantastic Khan, but I kind of want an Eastern European actor to play Klaw.
Has an excerpt from Portman "There are definitely many strong women, but it will be exciting when there is a central female character which I think is coming I have heard is coming and, of course, also a central non-white character will also be exciting. Title characters.
I would assume Black Panther is basically confirmed.
I agree with Portman, a superhero movie with a female and non-white lead would be awesome. In fact, we've already gotten two awesome superhero movies (kind of) with a AA lead. They're known as Blade and Blade II. And yes, BP is the most obvious choice based on her comments. You know, for someone who supposedly didn't want to come back (which I'm not sure is true) Portman seems fairly enthusiastic.
Between comments dropped by Feige, Stan Lee and now Portman it sounds like at the very least Black Panther and Dr. Strange are a lock for phase III along with Thor 3 (unless TDW bombs - unlikely but God I hope not) and Cap 3 (most likely a third sequel coming as well). Unless there are 6 films in Phase 3 or Ant-Man is secretly part of Phase 2, I'm not sure that leaves room for Ms. Marvel? Also I'd really love to see the original Mar-Vell first.
T'Challa will be an awesome addition to the MCU. He's great in EMH. I only wish he could've been introduced via the FF like the original Lee/Kirby tale. Oh well. It is what it is...
Why Eastern European when Klaw is Dutch?
(not that I have a problem with an eastern european actor in the role, just asking out of curiosity )
I wouldn't mind seeing one of the Mikkelsen brother as Klaw. Either Mads or Lars would do a good job I think.
He *is* great in EMH.
I don't know, I've just always pictured Klaw as being more "foreign" and a British actor doesn't really fit that bill. A Dutch of German actor could work to, Mikkelsen is Danish isn't he?
I have French Actor Vince Cassel as Klaw.
I'll wait for an official announcement of a Black Panther movie. Portman is just an actor in a different franchise and it's not like Stan works for marvel studios.
Yes the Mikkelsen brothers are Danish.
Marvel rumoured to be linked with Game Of Thrones Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who is also Danish for a role in Captain America Winter Soldier. Waldau might make a good Klaw.
I am sick of British accents for European forgeigners, but Cumberbatch was so awesome in Star Trek.
Cumberbatch is awesome in EVERYTHING. He could make reading a phone book awesome.
Cumberbatch was great as a young Stephen Hawkins, Abolitionist British Prime Minster William Pitt the younger and he was hilarious as the worlds worst hostage negotiator in Four Lions.
Djimon Hounsou still interested in playing T'Challa:
I really like Djimon, but he's too old for the role. He could play T'Chaka, T'Challa's father, that would be cool.
I don't see Djimon Hounsou playing T'Challa. Starting a new potential movie franchise with a lead actor who is in their 50 in a physical role isn't going to happen with Black Panther plus unless Djimon is wearing a ton of prosthetics and make up in Guradians Of The Galaxy I don't think he will play another role within the MCU unless its a voice role.
He can play T'Chaka.
Djimon Honsou might be great as "The Panther"-- such as Azzari the wise circa World War II, or even T'Chaka..
From the horse's own mouth.
Feige says Black Panther is absolutely indevelopment
Please baby Jesus, let this happen.
Calling it: Black Panther will be the mystery 7/8/16 film, just in time for the character's 50th anniversary
This isn't much of a surprise. They've been talking about BP for years, and Stan Lee has said that they're developing a BP movie.
Now they need this guy to play T'Challa:
Sign him up quick. Dude's price tag is about to spike real quick after awards season next year.
