Chadwick Boseman (42, Get On Up) will assume the role of Black Panther, giving the MCU its third ever non-white superhero (War Machine and Falcon were the first two). More than that, we get an immensely talented actor in his biggest role to date.

Andy Serkis will play Ulysses Klaue, a villain who’s traditionally been Black Panther’s main adversary throughout his comic history. After losing his hand to Ultron, odds are we’ll see Klaue don his trademark mechanical limb soon.

Lupita Nyong’o will be playing T’Challa’s love interest while Creed star Michael B. Jordan has joined the cast of Black Panther as the villain Erik Killmonger. Variety announced Angela Bassett will be joining the cast, playing the mother of T’Challa.
