"Black Panther has this incredibly hot chick who's going to become his wife, so why wouldn't we throw her into this thing. Marvel gave us the permission, and I took a little of the Eric Jerome Dickey "Storm" story, which I loved, and worked a little of that back story in."
Last year, we went a little crazy for the footage we saw of the “Black Panther” animated series developed by BET. Featuring award-winning actor Djimon Hounsou as the voice of Wakandan leader T’Challa (a.k.a. The Black Panther), the six-episode series debuted on iTunes back in June and now arrives on DVD next week, courtesy of Shout Factory and Marvel Knights Animation.
The animated series is based on the celebrated “Black Panther” comic book arc written by former BET President of Entertainment Reginald Hudlin and veteran artist John Romita Jr. (“Kick-Ass”), and uses a motion-comic style of animation.
