Michael B. Jordan Says BLACK PANTHER Took Him To A "Dark Place" Emotionally; Two New Photos Released

Hear what Michael B. Jordan had to say of his experience as Erik Killmonger in Marvel's upcoming film Black Panther, and check out two brand new images featuring the film's two stars.

With the theatrical release of Black Panther right around the corner, the stars of the film are beginning to do the press rounds. Speaking to Empire in the latest issue, of which Black Panther is the cover of, star Michael B. Jordan - who plays the nefarious Erik Killmonger - opened up on the emotional toll the role took on him.

"It took me to a dark place," Jordan revealed. "Honestly, I can’t really go through all I went through to get into it because I want to keep that close to me. But it stuck with me afterwards."

But while the role itself was tough on Jordan, he did say he "had a lot of fun on set" with co-star Chadwick Boseman, who plays T'Challa/Black Panther. "Chadwick's a very talented dude," Jordan said of the film's star, teasing their onscreen action. "There’s a lot of physical moments and action sequences throughout this film that cause us to really challenge ourselves, and also fall deeper into character." 

In addition to Jordan's comments, Empire debuted two new photos from Black Panther, which you can check out below.
