‘Black Panther’: Watch the Complete First Season Starring Djimon Hounsou, Kerry Washington
After rumors began swirling last week about a film adaptation of Marvel Comic’s Black Panther, we researched the character and came across a pretty cool B.E.T/Marvel animated series based on the African comic book hero.
The animated series, written by Reginald Hudlin, delivers some racy and unexpected dialogue. In a pivotal scene in the series, African tribe leader T’Challa (Djimon Housou), also known as the Black Panther, goes on an epic tirade: “I understand your frustration in dealing with a black man who can’t be bought with a truck full of guns, a plane full of blondes, and a Swiss bank account,” says T’Challa. “But please, hold on to what little class you have.”
The series also stars the voiceover talents of Kerry Washington (“Scandal”) as Princess Shuri, Alfre Woodard as Dondi Reece, Phil Morris (“Love That Girl”) as W’Kabi, and Jill Scott (“No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency”) as Storm.
