BLACK PANTHER: The Roles Of Lupita Nyong'o, Letitia Wright, Forest Whitaker And More Have Been Confirmed

Following Disney's CinemaCon presentation last night, we now know the characters that the likes of Forest Whitaker, Letitia Wright and Lupita Nyong'o will play in Marvel's Black Panther movie...

Disney may not have screened any footage from Ryan Coogler's Black Panther during their CinemaCon panel last night, but they did confirm which characters the principal cast members would be portraying in the Marvel film.

We already knew a lot of 'em, of course, but the image above confirms that Danai Gurira will be playing fearsome Dora Milaje member, Okoye, while Lupita Nyong'o is Nakia, who starts out as a fellow bodyguard of T'Challa's but eventually turns against him and joins forces with Killmonger. Forest Whitaker has also been confirmed as one of T'Chaka's old friends, Zuri.

Though many fans guessed as much, the biggest news here is that Letitia Wright will play Shuri, half-sister of T'Challa and one of his most formidable allies. Shuri also took up the mantle of Black Panther in the comics.

In addition, some new footage from the South Korean set of the movie has emerged, which you can check out HERE.
