I dunno. I think Chiwetel Ejiofor, who played the Operative in Serenity would be better suited. T'Challa is a cultured genius as much as he is a fighter, after all.
T'Challa is very agile and definitly limber, hence, the actor should be a gymnast as well as a proficiant martial artist. I see T'Challa as neither this 6'0" muscle bound brawler, nor, a danty aristocrat with a few good moves. I think what we need here people is a diamond in the rough, an uknown with flare and talent. Some one who can make the world believe that he is of noble blood and can thrash you with words while pommeling you from all angles as he deals with other pressing matters on his Kimoyo.
