Lupita Nyong’o Joins Black Panther Cast – Actress Lupita Nyong’o has reportedly joined the cast of upcoming super hero movie, Black Panther.
The super hero, played by Chadwick Boseman, made his debut in this month’s Captain America: Civil War, and was one of the movie’s best characters, drawing wide praise from all corners.
Lupita is reportedly going to play a love interest for the King of Marvel’s fictional Wakanda nation. Creed director Ryan Coogler is at the helm of the film, with fellow Creed star Michael B. Jordan also playing a part in the movie.
Marvel chief Kevin Feige has recently spoken about his excitement about the movie and it’s cast, saying: “That will be amongst the best ensembles we’ve ever had and 90% of the cast is either African or African-American.”
Black Panther is expected to hit cinemas on the 16th of February 2018. What do you think about Lupita’s casting?
