Guess who making a jump from the Star Wars Cinematic Universe into the Marvel Cinematic Universe? If you said Lupita Nyong’o  then  you’re right because Lupita Nyong’o is joining Marvel’s Black Panther movie!!!

Get more details on Lupita Nyong’o Joining Marvel’s Black Panther on the flip…

Lupita Nyong’o just got word via Hollywood Reporter that Lupita Nyong’o is in negotiations to join Marvel Studios’ spinoff Black Panther, starring Chadwick Boseman and written and directed by Creed’s Ryan Coogler.

After watching Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, the Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War, we’re sold! Chadwick Boseman was such a refreshing and great addition to the Captain America and Marvel Cinematic Universe we can’t wait for the Black Panther stand alone film. What we are wonder is, if Lupita Nyong’o joins the cast will she playing T’Challa’s future queen or will she too be another superhero in the works?

Also, what other Marvel superheroes will join the Black Panther in his solo film since Captain America is hiding the Winter Soldier in the Black Panther’s secret layer in the jungles of Wakanda, the fictitious African nation known to be rich in an unbreakable alloy called vibranium.  T’Challa uses this vibranium to make his Black Panther suit, and it helps keep him invincible when fighting, as we saw in Captain America: Civil War.

Black Panther is slated to be released February 2, 2018.
