Academy Award-winning actor Forest Whitaker is the latest big talent to join the already impressive cast roster of Marvel's Black Panther, along with Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) and Florence Kasumba (Captain America: Civil War). In addition to Chadwick Boseman, who made his impressive debut as the titular Wakandan king, spiritual figure, and superhero in Civil War, Ryan Coogler‘s hugely-anticipated follow-up has also lined up Michael B. Jordan as the villainous Killmonger, Andy Serkis as Age of Ultron’s low-tier baddie Ulysses Claw, and Winston Duke as a key villain M’Baka, nee “Man-Ape”.
Whitaker is set to play Zuri, an elder statesman of Wakanda while Kaluuya and Kasumba will also play allies to T’Challa. Kasumba reprises her Civil War role as the total badass Dora Milaje warrior who was ready to trade blows with Black Widow, while Kaluuya will play T’Challa’s confidante W’Kabi.
We cannot wait for this!
