Michael B. Jordan and Ryan Coogler are officially back at it again. Jordan has officially been cast in Marvel’s 2018 film, Black Panther. Chadwick Boseman made his debut as the Black Panther during Captain America: Civil War and blew critics away with a stellar performance. Jordan’s character has yet to be revealed, but THR’s sources claim it to be a villain. With this announcement of Jordan being tapped to be apart of the film will only raise the anticipation for Black Panther.
Yesterday, it was reported that Lupita Nyong’o and Marvel are in contract talks for her to be apart of Black Panther. Once the contract talks are settled, Nyong’o is said to be the lead role for the film, although her character has yet to be announced.
If you are ever looking to fulfill your lifetime dream of being in a Marvel film, make sure you aim for the role of Johnny Storm first. Michael B. Jordan joined Chris Evans in the lineage of Johnny Storm and now he’s following Evans’ same transition from Storm to ending up in a more successful Marvel movie.
Black Panther will be written and directed by Ryan Coogler, aiming to start production early 2017.
