Captain America: Civil War was all about the showdown between two of Marvel Studios’ flagship heroes, Captain America and Iron Man. But a newcomer very nearly stole the show from right under them. Chadwick Boseman made a huge splash in his first appearance as T’Challa a.k.a. Black Panther, proving himself to be a very charismatic, very smart, and very different kind of Marvel superhero.
He’s got his own solo movie launching in 2018, and at Comic-Con today Marvel took a few minutes to confirm the incredible cast of the film. In addition to Boseman, Black Panther will star Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) as Okoye, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, and Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger.

So far, Sebastian Stan‘s Bucky Barnes (a.k.a. Winter Soldier) has functioned mostly as a supporting character to Chris Evans‘ Captain America: part sidekick, part nemesis, part damsel in distress. But Captain America: Civil War gave Bucky the opportunity to mingle with some of Marvel’s other big names, with spectacularly entertaining results. Now he could reunite with one of his new acquaintances in the not-too-distant future.
Speaking at a recent event, Stan hinted Bucky might return in 2018’s Black Panther, alongside Civil War co-star Chadwick Boseman. It’ll be Bucky’s first appearance in a non-Captain America movie (unless you count that Ant-Man post-credits scene, which you shouldn’t since it was really just a clip from Captain America: Civil War). SPOILERS for Captain America: Civil War follow. Read More »

UPDATE: John Boyega will not be in Black Panther, according to his agent.
Well, at least the film still has all those other incredible stars. Our original story follows.
As it is, the cast for Ryan Coogler‘s Black Panther is almost staggeringly great. In addition to Chadwick Boseman as the title character, it’s got Lupita Nyong’o as a possible love interest and Michael B. Jordan as a potential villain. Plus, there’s a decent chance Andy Serkis, Martin Freeman, and Florence Kasumba could reprise their roles from previous Marvel movies.
But Coogler’s not done. A new rumor going around this week suggests Star Wars: The Force Awakens star John Boyega could also be up for a part in Black Panther. Read More »
