Marvel Studios' 'Black Panther' Adds Forest Whitaker And Others To Its Stellar Cast

I've a feeling Marvel Studios' Black Panther is going to be amazing just on the cast and director alone, and to bolster that feeling Marvel added a few more to the cast and the real cherry on top is Forest Whitaker!

Marvel's press release for the news goes as follows:

The film, directed by Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed), has also added Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, and Florence Kasumba to an all-star lineup that includes Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, ruler of Wakanda, and Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, plus Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia and Danai Gurira as Okoye, members of the fierce Dora Milaje.

Forest Whitaker (Roots, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, The Last King of Scotland) will play the role of Zuri, an elder stateman in Wakanda. Whitaker appears in this year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as fringe Rebel leader Saw Gerrera, and he’ll be seen in "The Forgiven" as famed activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Head of the Turth and Reconciliation Commission in post-apartheid South Africa.
Kasumba will reprise her Captain America: Civil War role as Ayo, a member of the Dora Milaje.
Kaluuya (Skins, Black Mirror, Sicario) will play T’Challa confidant W’Kabi. Duke (Person of Interest) will appear as M’Baku, leader of a rival tribe in Wakanda.

Black Panther is set to be released February 16, 2018!
