During Marvel’s famous Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con additional cast members were confirmed for Black Panther.
The movie directed by Ryan Cooler begins filming in January. Joining Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther will be: Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Michael B. Jordan as Erik KillMonger and The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira (Michonne) as Okoye, head of the Dora Milage.
On stage the cast members expressed their excitement and sounded eager to begin filming. With Black Panther being so far out, it made sense that no footage was shown, however confirmation of additional cast members was enough to have us thrilled to learn more.

Black Panther made his debut in Captain America: Civil War earlier in the year, which is set to release on home video in the coming months.
