Lupita Nyong’o and Micheal B Jordan set for Black Panther movie roles…

May 13th, 2016 by Marc Comments


The Black Panther movie has added some serious talent in mysterious roles…

THR are reporting that Star Wars: The Force Awakens Lupita Nyong’o has all but joined the MCU movie cast in an as yet undisclosed role.

Also signed on is Creed and Fantastic Four star Michael B Jordan – Black Panther director Ryan Coogler directed Creed, so the duo are already well acquainted.

It’s also worth noting that Jordan is the second Johnny Storm to join the MCU, given that Chris Evans is Captain America.

THR are reporting they have heard that Jordan will be a villain in the movie, but Marvel wouldn’t comment.

Chadwick Boseman will return as T’Challa AKA Black Panther after his debut in Captain America: Civil War.

Black Panther has a Feb. 16, 2018, release date, with production set to start in early 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
