    Marvel's bigwigs have a knack for topnotch casting, and Black Panther, the Marvel Cinematic Universe's 2018 venture into the Kingdom of Wakanda, is no exception. This film's sprawling cast includes familiar faces and new additions to the MCU, and, as you may have already noticed, many of Wakanda's heroes and villains look - and sound - very familiar. Let's take a look at where you've already seen the talented men and women behind Marvel's Black Panther...

    Danai Gurira - Okoye | 1:14
    Michael B. Jordan - Erik Stevens/Killmonger | 2:08
    Lupita Nyong'o - Nakia | 3:00
    Forest Whitaker - Zuri | 3:36
    Angela Bassett - Ramonda | 4:31

    Sad News From Disney
    This is so disappointing. CNN reported today that Walt Disney's new film
    called "Jet Black," the African-American version of "Snow
    White" has been cancelled.
    All of the 7 dwarfs: Dealer, Stealer, Mugger, Forger, Drive By, Homeboy, and
    Shank has refused to have their pictures taken and to sing "Hi Ho, Hi
    Ho" because they say it offends black prostitutes.
    They also say there ain’t no way in hell they’re gonna
    sing "It's off to work we go."

      Samflower Ah, thank you for clearing that up. Makes sense now. I don't think they add that in the movies.

    • Samanthaflower
      Samanthaflower Year ago +1

      Celeste Parkinson In the comics, Ramonda is not T’Challa’s mother. Ramonda is the second or third wife of T’Chaka in the comics and the mother of only Suri. So in the comics T’Challa and Suri are step siblings. I’m not sure in the movies if they kept that part of the family story or if they ignored the comics and made Ramonda T’Challa’s mother too.

    Very informative. I like how many of these are British or famous in other countries, I think such actors who get their start elsewhere tend to be more talented vs typical Hollywood celebs who stay relevant based on their looks or personal life rather than their actual talent.

    Good film all around. My favourite mcu film along with Deadpool. Heh so many Brit actors. I've first seen Daniel Kaluuya in series The Fades. He was excellent there too, very talented.
    p.s. it's not British version of The office it's the original Office. American one is a "version " of it...
