Marvel continues to rescue Human Torches as Michael B. Jordan joins 'Black Panther'
Some days, everything just comes up
Milhouse Human Torch. After a failed stint as Johnny Storm in Fox’s most recent Fantastic Four outing, Michael B. Jordan has been swooped up by Marvel and dropped into the middle of Wakanda.
Black Panther is shaping up to be a smorgasbord of top talent.
First announced today by THR, sources confirmed the Creed actor will rejoin with director Ryan Coogler for the third time. Details are under wraps, but THR heard chatter that Jordan could play the villain in Black Panther.
This comes on the heels of yesterday’s news that Lupita Nyong’o is in talks to join Black Panther as well, perhaps as T’Challa’s love interest. In the video above (and below), Roth Cornet and Donna Dickens discuss both how they feel about how Black Panther is shaping up and who Jordan could be playing…
…plus Donna stumps for adding the effervescent Gina Torres to the cast.
Black Panther is scheduled for a February 2, 2018 release date.
