Ever since Captain America: Civil War took over American movie theaters this past weekend, the conversation has been on Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa aka Black Panther. His solo film is set to drop on February 2, 2018, and to help alleviate fan tensions, more casting news is dropping.
Earlier today (May 13), Hollywood Reporter revealed that Michael B. Jordan inked a deal to join the Black Panther cast alongside Boseman and a still-pending Lupita Nyong’o. It’s a shame we have to wait three years to see what this tag team of Black Excellence has up its sleeve, but color us interested, regardless. Civil War has already made north of $200 million in less than 10 days, with plenty more to come. But trust that T’Challa will be stealing the throne in two years.
In case you missed it, Marvel also put out a video recap of the first issues of its new Black Panther series, hosted by author Ta-Nehisi Coates with music by Run The Jewels. Peep the video below.
