WHO IS BLACK PANTHER?
|Who should be cast to play Black Panther? I'd love to see David Ramsey (he|
plays "Diggle" on the CW's Arrow).

WHY AM I EXCITED ABOUT THIS?
This question is pretty easy to answer. Having Black Panther in the stories means that we're probably going to get a Namor storyline pretty soon. Plus, to be honest, I'm a little jaded with all the white washing that Marvel has. I mean these are great stories, but women and men of color or minorities in general have no "leading" roles. The big heroes are Thor (white), Captain America (white), and Iron Man (white). Black Widow is basically a footnote, although outcry over her super tiny role is starting to build momentum. Maybe Marvel will someday invest some money in a franchise actually starring Scarlett Johansson, but as of this writing I've heard of none. And I'm also pleased that Don Cheadle may have a guest star role in Avengers: Age of Ultron because he's pretty much a supporting character. The same goes for Falcon...supporting character material in Winter Soldier, and the pessimist in me says there's no way he makes the transition to the Avenger's movie despite having nailed the role.
