Aldis Hodge recently announced that he wants the Black Panther role.
The 25-year-old actor currently plays Alec Hardison on TNT network’s Leverage. His character on Leverage is a tech whiz, which should prepare him to portray the superior intellect of T’Challa. But with a skimpy acting record does he have what it takes to tackle the role?
While he has only a few acting credits under his belt — ABC Family’s Lincoln Heights, NBC’s Persons Unknown, and the sports biopic The Express, Boseman did something right to land the role of iconic baseball star Jackie Robinson in 42.
Playing a superhero in a Marvel film could boost his acting career even more.
