RUMOR: Ernie Hudson in Talks for “Black Panther” Role

Actor Ernie Hudson may be a contender for the role of King T’Chaka in Marvel’s upcoming “Black Panther” film. A report from Latino-Review has the “Ghostbusters” alum researching the character in anticipation of possibly playing the father of the classic Marvel hero.

In the comics, King T’Chaka of Wakanda is the father of T’Challa, who goes on to become the Black Panther after him. Like his ancestors, T’Chaka kept Wakanda hidden from the world in order to protect the African nations’ cache of Vibranium. T’Chaka dies from the machinations of Ulysses Klaw, who discovers and covets Wakanda’s Vibranium store; his death pushes T’Challa to take on the legacy of his fathers to become the Black Panther.

Klaw, played by Andy Serkis, will appear in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” this May.

“Black Panther” is scheduled for a November 3, 2017 release.
