Black Panther Casts Ready Player One’s Letitia Wright

The cast of Marvel’s “Black Panther” keeps on growing, as it’s now been reported that Letitia Wright has joined the cast (via Variety).

Although still a relative newcomer in the United States, Wright has been a rising star across the pond. After turning heads in a number of indie roles, including a lead part in 2015’s “Urban Hymn”, Wright went through a British acting rite of passage with a part in “Doctor Who”.  She had the acting chops to catch the attention of none less than Sir Stephen Spielberg, who cast her in his upcoming adaptation of Ernst Cline’s novel “Ready Player One.”

Wright’s role in “Black Panther” has not yet been revealed, but she will be joining a cast of almost entirely black actors, including Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Forest Whitaker, and Danai Gurira.
