Michael B. Jordan Joins Cast of Marvel’s Black Panther

Those who felt that Michael B. Jordan got the short end of the stick by having his only superhero film credit being attached to 20th Century Fox’s ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot can breath a sigh of relief as he will get a second opportunity at the genre under Marvel Studio’s with the upcoming ‘Black Panther’.

News broke that Joran officially joins the anticipated film which will be written and directed by Ryan Coogler, who is becoming a regular collaborator of Jordan. This will mark the third film they will work on together as the two previously worked on the films ‘Fruitvale Station’ and the critically well received ‘Creed’.

The film is also set to star Chadwick Boseman in the leading role, reprising his role as King T’Challa/The Black Panther from ‘Captain America: Civil War’, and rumours have been circulating of Lupita Nyong’o being in negotiations as well. While Michael B. Jordan’s role remains a mystery at this time, The Hollywood Reporter speculates that could be playing a villain.

This film looks set to mark a milestone for African Americans as the film is also strongly rumoured to feature a 90% African American cast and crew.

What do you think of this casting of what is already shaping up to be a stellar cast and crew? Don’t be afraid to let us know below.

About Warren Kantor

Warren Kantor
A fan of most things pop culture related, from movies, to TV, to gaming, to comics and everywhere in between. A great lover of superheroes since my family bought me my first Spectacular Spider-Man issue in Umhlanga over 2 decades ago, having seen almost all animated series, movies and live action films produced by the BIG TWO from the 90's onward. My favourite hero from marvel is everybody's friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man and from DC it's a 3 way split between Batman-Superman-Green Lantern. Favourite Marvel villains are Green Goblin, Doctor Doom and the Mandarin. "Do you hear that Iron Man 3!!!!" >:( . Favourite DC villains include Joker, Two-Face, Clayface, Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Darkseid, Sinestro and more. Can happily read anything written by Geoff Johns any day and everyday. Give me superhero movies and TV as well and watch that smile grow larger than Galactus. Been playing video games since the flea-market Nintendo cartridge days, through Sega Mega Drive, Playstation, PS2, PS3 and now PS4. Seen over 2,200 movies throughout my life and nowhere near done. Barry Ronge, Siskel and Ebert...eat your heart out boys. Also a huge fan of Pro Wrestling in all it's forms for 20 years, and a passion that consumes most of my days. Throw in some NBA on the side, a latent need to cook and a love of art with a just a pinch of writing and you begin to weave together the tapestry that is my life. Or make that the recipe that is the gluten free side dish that is my life. What tapestry will we weave together next and will you have room for seconds?
