MTV spoke to Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko from LOST), who said he was in talks to play the role.
"We're talking to Marvel about 'Black Panther,'" Akinnuoye-Agbaje told MTV News. "This is the first round, so you know, hopefully they'll look at 'G.I. Joe' and see the potential. But it's about time we have a black superhero, isn't it?"
I loved Mr. Eko's character on LOST. His character's...exit was pretty much the only thing I didn't like about the show. He's shown how bad ass he can be (with his "Jesus Stick" too). The more I think about it, I think it might not be a bad idea. What do you think?
