Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje still campaigning for 'Black Panther' role

By
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has revealed that he is still campaigning for the lead role in Marvel Studios' rumoured Black Panther movie.

The actor is hoping his dual role in the forthcoming Thor: The Dark World will help him land the part of T'Challa if the film is greenlit.

"I would hope that playing Kurse would ingratiate me to becoming the Panther. You get in and have success in one, and you go and do the next one. [My campaign] is definitely not dropped. He's one of my faves. I would love to play him," he told MTV.

"You have to keep at it, you have to keep your card in the hat and see what comes out but I have to say I'm thrilled, I've been able to play two characters in one movie and if [Marvel] likes this and it this does well, it just gives you a better chance."

The former Lost star will play two villainous parts in the Thor sequel - Algrim and Kurse - and has filmed fight sequences with both Chris Hemsworth's Thor and Tom Hiddleston's Loki.

Marvel is yet to officially announce Black Panther but actors including Wesley Snipes, Anthony Mackie and Djimon Hounsou have all been linked with the character in the past.
