The suspense has been exhausting waiting for the official details to be released since the announcement of the Black Panther movie back in October of 2014 as another speculation hits air ways.
It’s being tossed around that award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o may be cast in the film to play the love interest of T’Challa better known as ‘The Black Panther’ although the character hasn’t been named. Coming from the desk of The Hollywood Reporter Lupita is in the negotiation stage with Marvel Studios for her starring role. However when asked to make a comment or confirm anything as far as the public knows, a Marvel rep “declined to comment on rumor and speculation,” as reported by Complex.
As fans continue to patiently wait the only two things confirmed on the table as of now are that Ryan Coogler will be directing the film which is set to debut in February of 2018 and that Chadwick Boseman is the only confirmed cast member playing the lead role of Mr. Black Panther himself.
