Two big Marvel casting news broke yesterday and today, and they are major. Lupita Nyong’o is in talks for a role in Black Panther while Michael B. Jordan has been confirmed for a role. Both roles are undisclosed, but Lupita is reported to be a love interest while MBJ a villain.
Black Panther aka T’Challa made his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War, where he stole the show, to be honest. Black Panther is played by Chadwick Boseman. He will return in the solo film directed by Ryan Coogler.
This is already shaping up to be a talented cast, maybe the most talented cast of the MCU. It was reported that 90% of the cast is Black. Not to mention, MBJ’s Creed co-star Tessa Thompson will be starring in Thor: Ragnarok, supposedly as a superhero love interest. What a time to be alive!
Black Panther is scheduled to be released in 2018. But until then you can get your fix with Civil War. Tickets are available here.
