Since casting info is starting to happen, seems it's time for this show to get its own thread. News link. From that link, Loeb & the showrunner mentions: "Anson loves the challenge of playing a character who will only communicate silently. His enthusiasm mixed with his imposing almost regal persona made it easy to see why he is our Black Bolt." "Black Bolt is a character whose deep complexity must be conveyed without uttering a single word, and I’m very excited to have Anson on board to bring him to life."
