> I think Hudlin has done a good job getting a Black Panther cartoon on the air on BET or any other TV station, but I think someone else should have creative control over the show.
> Hopefully what we see in the cartoon will not mimic what we see in the current Panther comic series, because it would just be redundant, I think.
> I'm hoping that Priest, Don McGregor and other past Panther writers are given the chance to submit scripts for the cartoon, to give the program a more serious tone. And I'm also hoping that the animation is realistic, and not that anime-type animation which seems to be everywhere these days.
> I would LOVE to see Priest's "The Client" arc be the first five or so episodes of the cartoon. I think Priest's Panther should be the model for this cartoon. This is a grand opportunity, and hopefully BET won't mess it up.
> I wonder if we'll also be able to get action figures, based on the cartoon...
Film Roman, the animation studio behind FOX’s long-running primetime favorites The Simpsons and King of the Hill will produce animated films and multi-platform series with cable broadcaster BET's newly-established animation division. BET also announced that it will reunite the Static Shockteam of Denys Cowan and Dwayne McDuffie to create a new action-adventure series.
