Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Lupita Nyong'o (Maz Kanata) and Creed Star Michael B. Jordan (pictured) have been reported to be joining the cast of Marvel Studios sixth Phase Three movie, Black Panther which is due for release in theaters February 16th, 2018. Directed by Ryan Coogler (Creed) and based on a script written by Coogler and co-writer Joe Robert Cole (Amber Lake) the movie will see Chadwick Boseman (pictured below) reprise the title role of King T'Challa from this years hit comic book movie Captain America: Civil War.

The movie is expected to introduce audiences to the character after his magnificent introduction in the last movie of the Captain America trilogy. Filming for the Black Panther movie should begin early next year, and is expected to be a visually cinematic and action packed movie if the glimpses of Wakanda and the characters scenes from Civil War are any indication. We expect to see the character coming to terms with his untimely ascension to the throne and thus the ruler of his secretive and beloved country, which is also the source of the world's supply of Vibranium, the material used to make Captain America's shield. 

Director, actor and performance capture legend Andy Serkis is also expected to the return as Ulysses Klaue (pictured above), reprising the role from last years Avengers: Age of Ultron. At the moment, it is unclear what roles Nyong'o and Jordan are in contention for, but rumors suggest that Jordan may be in the running for a villainous role.
