Black Panther animated trailer

Coming from the San Diego Comic Con, Comic Book Resources has the trailer for BET's upcoming Black Panther animated series. The link also has an interview with BET President Reginald Hudlin, who is currently writing the Black Panther comic for Marvel, as well as a video of the May upfronts presentation.

I'm not very familiar with the character, but the animation is apparently being modeled quite closely on John Romita Jr.'s artwork, as you can see by this piece compared to the opening shot of the trailer. The style looks good, though the trailer doesn't really give an impression of the series itself. I think it focuses too much on the invading tribe and doesn't show nearly enough of the Black Panther.

Re: Black Panther animated trailer

I will watch the the show. Never thought I would see the day when Black Panther would have a show. I remember when my son was young people would always ask him what was wrong with his "Batman" action figure. It didn't look quite right.

I know this thread will get no love because people hate the idea of Black Panther, hate Hudlin, and hate BET.

Re: Black Panther animated trailer

I can't get the videos to load, but the idea does intrigue me. I think the premise behind the character is cool, so I'm interested to see how it's handled in a series.

The art looks good but my knowledge of Black Panther is limited to Marvel Comic trading cards.

Just think Coming to America mixed with Captain America and you have Black Panther.

Re: Black Panther animated trailer

Wow... the art was nice but the dialogue at least from that little snippet, was awful. Ridiculously anachronistic, 8,000 BC... right.

I can forgive the simplistic keyframed animation since the drawings themselves were nice, but really this looks like a fan project put together by 2 or 3 people, borders on embarrassing.

It's a shame because I've always thought the Black Panther's got the potential to be an interesting character in the right hands.

Re: Black Panther animated trailer

The dialogue is taken straight from the comic book. This looks to be a very close adaptation of the the six-issue Hudlin/Romita Jr arc that kicked off Hudlin's Black Panther series.

You can see the pages for the first issue, which includes the sequence in the trailer, here. The later reference to Captain America will likely be removed because of rights issues.

I'm very surprised to see them using what is essentially a modern version of the slightly animated art approach that was used in the Marvel animated shows of the 1960s. I can't make up my mind yet how I feel about it.

Thanks for the additional info on the dialogue, doesn't mean it's any good though.

At first I got this confused with Black Cougar.

But thankfully, it appears to be much different from that.

It would be nice if they could pull off a good Live action movie to add the Black Panther to the Avengers movie in 2011 or whenever their planning it.

Hudlin's BP comics are awful on pretty much every level, so I have little hope for this to be very good.

Being on BET, I wouldn't be surprised if T'challa talked "lak tEh HOMEboi-z", surrounds himself with undressded, overendowed women, and has regular lunches with Louis Farrakhan...

I am sorry but Black Panther is one of the few comics I have read that is recent and I must say that what I have read of it has been quite good. Very good in fact. These are stories that would never have been told in the past.

Re: Black Panther animated trailer

Hudlin's Black Panther is widely criticized for its writing, while Christopher Priest's 62-issue run (1998-2003) is widely acclaimed.
