Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ Producer Confirms Final Cast, and It’s Pretty Major

It can be tough to feign excitement for every piece of franchise news that comes out of Comic-Con, but Marvel’s final Black Panther casting choice is a legitimately cool bit of intel. It’s official: Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, and Danai Gurira will join Chadwick Boseman in the 2018 drama, according to the film’s producer Kevin Feige.

Black Panther marks the third time Michael B. Jordan and Ryan Coogler will have collaborated on a film together, a partnership that started with 2013’s Fruitvale Station and continued in 2015 with the critically acclaimed drama Creed.

Boseman, who will play the titular character, confirmed the news Saturday night on Twitter.

Nyong’o’s character is rumored to be Black Panther’s love interest, while Gurira will play the chief of a group of warrior women.

In an interview with Fast Company, director and co-writer Ryan Cooglerdescribed the project as his “most personal to date”:

It’s a specific challenge. What Marvel’s doing, and what you see a lot of studios doing now that Marvel has done it so successfully, is making content that exists in a particular universe, where the characters tie in and crossover, and I think that’s a great creative challenge to me—to make this movie as personal as possible. It’s going to be my most personal movie to date, which is crazy to say, but it’s completely the case. I’m obsessed with this character and this story right now, and I think it’s going to be very unique and still fit into the overall narrative that they’re establishing.

Black Panther‘s expected release date is Feb. 18, 2018.
