Musician Nabiyah Be has revealed that her small role in Marvel's Black Panther is none other than Tilda Johnson - A.K.A. the villainous Nightshade.

Be's role looks relatively minor as a member of Erik Killmonger's crew (seen above directly to the left of Killmonger). However in comic books, Nightshade is a Captain America villain who got her start turning convicts into an army of werewolves.

Whether any of that will be explored in Black Panther remains to be seen, however it's clear that once again Marvel is pulling from its deep bench to include as many Easter eggs and nods to classic continuity as possible.

Black Panther is due out in theaters February 16, 2018.
