BLACK PANTHER Casts Man-Ape

Michael B. Jordan's Erik Killmonger will have some help in the Black Panther villain department. Actor Winston Duke will play the nefarious M'Baku, better known as Man-Ape to Marvel readers. UPDATE

According to Variety, Person of Interest actor Winston Duke will play Man-Ape in Marvel's upcoming Black Panther movie.  Michael B. Jordan was previously cast as Erik Killmonger and is said to be the primary antagonist.  

Before selecting Winston, Variety adds that The Get Down star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II was also in the mix for the role.

With Chadwick Boseman recently hinting that previous Black Panther's will play a key role in telling T'Challa's origin, perhaps Man-Ape will be a foil of T'Chaka or a previous owner of the Black Panther mantle?

Black Panther will arrive in theaters on February 18, 2018 and is directed by Ryan Coogler, who co-wrote the screenplay with Joe Robert Cole.  Boseman will reprise his Civil War role as Black Panther, with Jordan as Erik Killmonger and  Lupita Nyong'o and  Danai Gurira playing Dora Milaje bodyguards Nakia and Okoye.  Filming is scheduled to begin in January 2017 in Pinewood Studios in Atlanta.

Update: The Wrap confirms that Andy Serkis will reprise his role as Ulysses Klaw from Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron, bringing our Black Panther villain total to 3.
