Black Panther has an amazing cast.

Like this is fact, not opinion. The sky is blue. The grass is green. We need air to breathe. Black Panther has an amazing cast.

The film just continues to add to its pool of talented actors that have boarded the film. Can we just take a look at who is in this movie? We have Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, and Danai Gurira. Add to this amazing cast, the amazing Ryan Coogler directing this film? 

Like just accept the epic into your lives.

Well we have another talented actor joining in as well in a major villain role.

Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Winston Duke (Person of Interest) has boarded that film as long-time Panther foe, M’Baku.

Also going against Panther will be Jordan’s character Erik Killmonger. So will these two villains team-up against our hero? It will be interesting to see the double antagonists at play here.

In comics, M’Baku is definitely T’Challa’s most well known foe. M’Baku, also known as Man-Ape, has been battling the Black Panther in comics since 1969. Most people, myself included, thought that the role would be played by Jordan.

Duke is a relatively unknown actor with his role in Person of Interest as Dominic/Mini being his biggest role prior to this film. I’m excited to see what he’ll bring to the 2018 film as M’Baku.

Black Panther is set for release on February 16, 2018.
