With director Ryan Coogler officially on board, The Hollywood Reporter just revealed that Michael B. Jordan has inked a deal to join the cast of Black Panther. This will be the third time Coogler and Jordan have come together on the silver screen, following the critically-acclaimed Fruitvale Station and Rocky VII, better known as Creed. Although the details of his role have yet to be revealed, a THR source suggests it will be the villain to Chadwick Boseman’s protagonist, T’Challa. Rumors have also begun to swirl about suggesting Lupita Nyong’o is in negotiations to play Boseman’s love interest.
With Blank Panther shaping up to be a surefire blockbuster with an all-star cast, our only concern is: who will Jordan portray? Let us know who you would like to see below.
