The “Creed” superstar had been reported to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it’s now official, according to Michael B. Jordan’s interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Jordan told THR that he’s “super excited, especially to put a different spin on it.”
That’s … pretty much all he said about the role.
Jordan probably isn’t feeling inclined to spill the beans about the film to a reporter, so, for now, fans can rest easy knowing Jordan and the Black Panther himself, Chadwick Boseman, will take the reigns on the film.
“Black Panther” is expected in 2018.
