Michael B. Jordan Joins Ryan Coogler's 'Black Panther' (Could Be Playing a Villain)

If you weren’t already excited about yesterday’s news of Lupita Nyong’o being “in talks” to star opposite Chadwick Boseman in Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” movie, which will be directed by Ryan Coogler, maybe the addition of Michael B. Jordan might help.

That’s right, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Jordan will reteam with his “Creed” and “Fruitvale Station” director for a role in “Black Panther” that hasn’t been revealed yet. Although THR says that their sources tell them that he might be playing a villain of some sort. But nothing has been confirmed by Marvel.

So feel free to speculate on what that role could be, as you did yesterday with Lupita’s unannounced role.

Black Panther/T’Challa was just introduced in “Captain America: Civil War’ to much fanfare, as Ta-Nehisi Coates also introduces new audiences to the work, via the comic book series Marvel brought him on to write.

The movie is set for a February 2, 2018 release, with production starting in early 2017.
