Of the little reading I’ve done of Black Panther comic books, it would seem that lineage is an important theme. With that in mind, it the Marvel Studio’s production is looking to cast an actor to play our titular characters father. Super scooper Umberto Gonzalez took a break from finding out DC Universe news, to find out who may fill this role in the Phase 3 MCU film. “Actor Ernie Hudson is circling the role of King T’Chaka ruler of Wakanda & father of Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa aka The Black Panther.” If this comes to fruition, I think Ernie Hudson would be a great fit for the role. He could pass for Chadwick Boseman’s father. Also, he’s got geek credibility from his roles in the Ghostbusters franchise, and The Crow. He most recently appeared in the pilot episode of Scorpion.
