I actually don't mind that Monica and the White Wolf won't be in the film.
Not to say they're bad comic book characters. But at this point the powerlesss girlfriend and jealous brother have become too cliche in these Marvel movies.
Do we know that Monica and White Wolf are not in the film?
Kinda agree with you on Monica, though I would enjoy it if it were a small role played by popular singer ( T'challa has to return to the USA...one night to relax or spy on someone, he enters a jazz club and there is Monica performing). She would fully appear in BP 2. I would want T'challa to have a love interest in the movie. Everybody else got a love interest in their movie....don't leave the black man out!! lol!
And c'mon...a white brother jealous of his black brother... that could be very intriguing.....
