British actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who is playing Heavy Duty in G.I. Joe and starred on “Lost” as Mr. Eko, might be the next actor in the running to play Marvel’s Black Panther. MTV just spoke with Adewale on a red carpet in San Diego last night and he had this to say: “We’re talking to Marvel about Black Panther… This is the first round, so hopefully they’ll look at G.I. Joe and see the potential, but it’s about time we have a black superhero.” Adewale is the latest actor to be in the running for the superhero role after both Chiwetel Ejiofor and Djimon Hounsou previously. But will this version finally see the light of day?
