11 Black Celebrities Who Would Be Perfect to Play Hannibal of Carthage

There has been a lot of discussion in Hollywood about finally making a blockbuster film about African kings and queens. One of the most intriguing stories to be told is of Hannibal of Carthage.

King Hannibal is said to be the greatest military leader and strategist of all time. Hannibal was born in 247 B.C., during the beginning of the decline of Carthage, then a maritime power near present-day Tunis in North Africa. The Carthage population was a mix of Africans and Phoenicians who were great merchants, trading with India, the people of the Mediterranean and the Scilly Isles.

Here are 11 actors who could bring that story to life on the big screen
