On top of revealing the new logo for the upcoming Black Panther film, director Ryan Coogler (Creed) introduced some of the new cast members joining the film, which confirms some previous rumors:
In addition to Chadwick Boseman, the Black Panther himself, and director Ryan Coogler, Feige also welcomed to the stage Michael B. Jordan, who will play Erik Killmonger; Lupita Nyong’o, taking the role of Nakia; and Danai Gurira as Okoye.
So we have our villain in Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger! Black Panther got a great introduction Captain America: Civil War, and I’m eager to see him in action for his own adventure. Filming starts up early next year in preparation for its July 6, 2018 release date.
