Jordan previously worked with the film's director, Ryan Coogler, on the films Fruitvale Station and Creed. It makes sense that the director would want to include him in Black Panther. This is also a Marvel Studios project that Jordan can be proud to be a part of!
Jordan will join Chadwick Boseman, who is taking on the role of Black Panther and possibly Lupita Nyong’o, who is currently in negotiations to play T'Challa's love interest. There's no word on who exactly Jordan will be playing, but one inside source says that it could be a villain.
The cast for Black Panther just keeps getting better and better! The film is set to be released on February 2, 2018.
