Black Panther Adds Michael B. Jordan To Cast

Marvel has officially cast Michael B. Jordan in Black Panther.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Creed star will be joining the highly anticipated film, which is written and directed by Ryan Coogler.

Jordan follows yesterday's news that Star Wars actress Lupita Nyong'o was in talks to star as the love interest of T'Challa.

Jordan's role in the highly anticipated film is currently unknown, but THR notes that he could play a villain.

Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as the titular hero, who's also known T'Challa, Prince of the fictional African nation of Wakanda. The character first appeared on the big screen in Captain America: Civil War, which opened in theaters last week. Boseman's performance as the character has received fan and critical acclaim. Some fans even cried on the set of Civil War the first time they saw Boseman as Black Panther.

Earlier this month, Marvel debuted a new Black Panther video series to help fans educate the beloved character.

Black Panther is slated for release on February 2, 2018.
