Sometimes casting announcements come from official sources such as movie studios a la Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok announcements, and sometimes they're simply unconfirmed reports from Hollywood trades. But sometimes, the confirmation comes straight from the actors themselves - such as with Michael B. Jordan, who has confirmed that he's taken a role in Marvel's Black Panther.
“I’m super excited, especially to put a different spin on it,” Jordan told The Hollywood Reporter, confirming what was previously just a trade report. “I’m looking forward to working with [director] Ryan [Coogler] once again. It’s gonna be a good time.”
Jordan also confirmed reports that Star Wars actress Lupita Nyong'o would be joining Black Panther, saying he "couldn't wait to work" with Nyong'o and T'Challa actor Chadwick Boseman.
Neither Jordan nor Nyong'o's castings have been officially confirmed by Marvel Studios.
Black Panther is scheduled to hit theaters July 6, 2018.
