We had previously stated that Lupita Nyong’o and Michael B. Jordan would be joining the cast of Black Panther, but now we got a couple of updates courtesy of San Diego Comic-Con. Danai Gurira will be joining Black Panther as the head of the Dora Milaje, Okoye. Nyong’o’s and Jordan’s roles were also revealed. Nyong’o will be playing Nakia, while Jordan is playing the villain Erik Killmonger. And of course, Chadwick Boseman is playing T’Challa.
The film is still too far away from my tastes, but these updates are keeping me satisfied. I can’t wait until they start shooting so we can get some set photos. We already got a glimpse of Wakanda in Captain America: Civil War, and it was awesome. Until then, we’ll just have to watch Luke Cage.
Black Panther is scheduled to be released in February 2018
