During Comic-con International, director Ryan Coogler introduced the cast of Marvel’s upcoming film “Black Panther.” Chadwick Boseman was already confirmed for the film, as he previously made his debut in “Captain America: Civil War,” and he was joined by “The Walking Dead’s” Danai Gurira, “The Jungle Book’s” Lupita N’Yongo, and “Fantastic Four’s” Michael B. Jordan.
After the panel, Marvel caught up with N’Yongo, who provided the first plot details of the film. “The story of this Black Panther – what I am allowed to say – is that Black Panther’s leadership has been threatened by two foes who come together, and so Black Panther gets the help of the C.I.A. and the Dora Milaje to try and defeat the enemy.”
Since it was revealed that Jordan is playing the film’s villain, Erik Killmonger, that means he will be one of the two foes that seek to bring T’Challa down after the death of his father, King T’Chaka. The panel also confirmed that Gurira is playing Okoye, the head of the Dora Milaje, and that N’Yongo will play Nakia, a member of Okoye’s special forces group.
“Black Panther” opens in theaters February 16, 2018.
