> Toon Zone attended the New York Comic Con’s Black Panel on Friday, where additional details on BET’s Black Panther animated series were revealed:
> The biggest news for BET was about the newly announced prime-time Black Panther animated series, which was the first question from the audience after Davis opened it up to questions from the audience. The new show will be based on the first story arc, “Who is the Black Panther?”, from the Marvel Comics series written by BET vice president Reginald Hudlin. Cowan reported that Hudlin will be writing the animated series, and that the series will be using many of artist John Romita Jr’s designs and aspire to look a lot like the original comics. The eight-episode series is currently scheduled to debut in October 2008. Cowan stated that there were no voice casting announcements he could make yet, but that they were talking to “some stars you might know.”

> This works for me. Just having it be an adaption (more or less) of "Who Is The Black Panther" makes it really easy in terms of trying to figure out how you work in other Marvel characters.
...I'm almost speechless. The worst Black Panther writer yet, and his take is given precedent over that of Stan Lee and Priest, seasoned vets of story telling.

Well, it's obvious that neither Stan Lee or Christopher Priest have the same level of interest in doing an animated Black Panther.
In fact, in Priest's case, Hudlin tried for years to get Priest to write a Black Panther movie. Priest declined every time.
So don't act like anyone is stepping out of line or anything. Stan Lee and Priest have obviously shown little to no interest in doing anything more with the Black Panther. Hudlin has, and has the pull on both the comic side and the TV side to get it done.
Yo, I'm Serious
