Black Panther Animated Series

#1 Posted by Adam Michaels (435 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm excited about the upcoming Black Panther animated series. I think this character is deserving of his own show, or at least a shot at his own show. I like to see some of the lesser known Marvel characters get a shot at shining a little more. 
 
I read on Wikipedia that the show is scheduled to begin airing Mid 2009. I think we're a little passed that and still no word on the show's debut. We've gotten a few looks at it and there was footage shown at the Black Panel at Comic-Con. But I watched the whole Black Panel vid here and despite the footage, they didn't announce anything about the show's debut (unless I missed that part).  
 
So I ask, what's going on with this show? When's it supposed to begin?

You sure about that? It would be VERY odd for them to show footage of it at Comic-Con this year if it was cancelled. Not to mention no official announcement about it from neither Marvel nor BET.

@Adam Michaels: They showed the footage last year, the footage then aired on both Marvel and BET, then 3 months afterwords, it was canceled. I personally heard nothing about it this year, nor saw any footage.

They announced it last year, they didn't show any footage of it. This year they did.  
 
http://www.comicvine.com/news/full-black-panel-footage-at-san-diego-comic-con/139025/ 
 
Babs even gave us the video of this year's Comic-Con's Black Panel that had shown footage of Black Panther's animated series. That part of the video is cut off out of respect of the demands of those in charge there.  
 
It's really hard to believe it's cancelled when it's not reported anywhere but in this thread. I don't mean to not believe you guys, but I have yet to find any word anywhere on the cancellation of this show.

 I guess no one watched the footage of the Black Panel, or the interview I did with Reggie Hudlin where he actually discusses the project. Basically, it hasn't been canceled. You can view the interview here:

I'm not optimistic about the show when i hear that it basically is a motion comic similar to those old 60's marvel superhero cartoons. there are other ways to keep the look of a particular artist's style, look at spectacular spiderman or the batman both have a distinct style from an artist in cartoon form.

Chugite, that is what they are doing right now. Watch the video...they are even adding scenes.

So, it appears that the first episode has been shown.
 
Has anybody seen it?

  It uses the 2d flash animation style, I have the 1st 4 episodes. It needs a bigger budget animation wise.

I saw the first few episodes and I have to admit, I am impressed. I like the style of the episodes, based on JRjr, which is always a good thing. They also have a great voice cameo by Stan Lee in the first episode. Some of the voice acting is a little odd, Captain America sounded off. It is also pretty "mature" in terms of tone and violence, which I like. I have never followed much Black Panther so this is cool for me and makes me wonder if it is a direct retelling of the Black Panther story from a few years ago because it has the same writer. Don't know why this is not in the states yet although BET is a weird fit, it does have alot of racial and African background with the story.

BRUH. DIS SH!T IS STUPID GANGSTA!!!! (despite some chronological errors, mistaking young T'Challa's fight with his uncle, the previous Black Panther, during the Rite of Ascension as present day, when it was many years earlier).

He's proven his dislike for Black Panther ever since I came to the Vine, and has said some pretty racist things in the past. I'm not as hostile toward him as I used to be, but I would have figured that he was smart enough to read the thread before posting that.

Plus it makes for a far more threat. Rhino sucks.

Sorry to bust your bubble (not really) but the show isn't canceled. It aired over seas already and will be airing in the US soon.

Black Panther did beat Cap. Whats is your point, his fans said something that actually happened. You seem to be really defensive about you posts. Anyway if you don't like BP why do you care enough to actually post negative comments on his personal forum? That what a troll would do.

No one is saying that you can't post where you want. But, seriously, it was just established that the show wasn't canceled, so the context of that post you made is meaningless, and quite silly since you didn't read the thread before posting that. So, please don't attack her because of it. You can be a Captain America fan, but that doesn't mean that he's going to win every fight. In volume 4, it was written that T'Chaka (T'Challa's father) defeated Captain America because he was young and an inexperienced fighter during World War II, and because he was trespassing on Wakandan soil. 
 


But, you're welcome to dismiss it as an invalid retcon, because in volume 3, T'Chaka stalemated Captain America instead during the same time period. Whatever came first, huh? In fact, I like Captain America, not as much as you, but I've been willing to accept the stalemate in volume 3 over the retcon in volume 4 (not to mention that it was written by a guy who's comic book knowledge and credibility are.... eh...).
 

But, the fight between T'Challa and Captain America during the Civil War is valid, even if you don't like it. That's just how it is.
 

Other than that, they considered to be equals in combat. Besides, there's a mini-series being released for T'Chaka and Cap during World War II later this year. It's a team up. Take the time to read it. You might like it. :)

Static Shock: Good post but to be honest while I think Priest is a MUCH better writer than Hudlin will ever be, Hudlin's retcon fight made more sense when you think about it. You have an inexperienced and young solider Cap going up against a more experienced, older and skilled king of the most advanced nation on the planet who's just as strong as peak human Steve. It's more likely that BP would win back then. Also minor correction the person Cap was fighting in WW2 and will be staring in the mini series with is Azzuri the Wise (T'Challa's Grandfather).

While it could have made more sense, I'm only going what's written first, not to mention that the fight Priest wrote wasn't written to have a clear winner to it. Not only that, Hudlin took T'Challa's origin and the T'Chaka/Klaw relationship, shafted it and retconned it into something else, contradicting a history that has already been established. That would also include the battle between Cap and T'Chaka in WWII.

Weird. Since, T'Chaka was written to be alive in other books during that time period. Hudlin is also writing that series, as well. Wouldn't surprise me.

I have no idea but someone needs to spearhead a petition to get them all on the air with an ongoing series.
 
My theory of what happened is the Illuminati pulled the plug on them because of the political commentary in the movie.<----this is kinda sorta a joke but not really.
