Marvel’s Black Panther will be the first mega-budget comic book movie led by a black superhero (and no, we’re not counting the likes of Blade as mega-budget), and the Comic Book company is certainly keen to pull together a great cast for the movie. Chadwick Boseman has already been seen as the title character in Captain America: Civil War, with Lupita Nyong’o in talks to join him, while Andy Serkis will be the villain and it’s also believed Martin Freeman’s government agent Everett Ross will show up.
Now, THR reports that Michael B. Jordan may be jumping from Fox’s Fantastic Four into Marvel’s own movie’s universe, as he’s now set to appear in Black Panther. It’s not known who he will play, but at least one source says he will be a bad guy.
It will be the third time Jordan has worked with director Ryan Coogler, following Fruitvale Station and Creed. Black Panther will shoot early next year for release February 2018.
