Christopher Judge has landed the part of T’Challa in Marvel’s Avengers. Interestingly, it is not the first time he was offered the part. The veteran actor famous for playing Teal’c on Stargate-SG1 and Kratos in God of War had initially declined the role, as he felt no one should follow in the late Chadwick Boseman’s footsteps. It was his family that pushed him into accepting it. He jokingly said his children and mother threatened to disown him if he didn’t. Black Panther will debut in a free expansion in August.

It’s also why he had reservations about taking on Black Panther when a new opportunity presented itself.

  1. I was wondering where I had heard the name before.

    Also took me a minute to realize they were talking about the video game. The game doesn’t follow MCU cannon, so it wouldn’t have been necessary to get the actor for voice acting. Still a nice gesture on Judge’s behalf.
