Black Panther Sequel Casts I May Destroy You Star

Production on Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, a sequel to the hit 2018 movie, is ongoing in Atlanta and a major addition to the cast has just been revealed. Variety reports that actress Michaela Coel, creator and star of the HBO Max original series I May Destroy You, has been enlisted for a part in the film by director Ryan Coogler. The role was not revealed by the trade who said details are locked up. Coel is coming off of four Primetime Emmy nominations for their series including nods for Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series as well as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie.

“It’s clearly very emotional without Chad,” Marvel head Kevin Feige previously said about the start of filming on the new movie. “But everyone is also very excited to bring the world of Wakanda back to the public and back to the fans. We’re going to do it in a way that would make Chad proud.” Feige previously confirmed that the new movie in the series would not recast the role of T’Challa following the shocking death of Boseman, who passed away unexpectedly last year from colon cancer.

Coel joins a stacked ensemble for the new movie though which includes returning players Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, and Angela Bassett, all reprising their parts from the first movie.

This is a developing story, it will be updated.
