In the forthcoming superhero effort, Lupita stars opposite leading man Chadwick Boseman as the warrior Nakia, a member of the all-female group who serve as protectors of the titular hero.
Opening up to Teen Vogue, Lupita has said that she was impressed with how well director Ryan Coogler portrayed strong female characters in the superhero film, particularly in comparison with other comic book adaptations.
Superhero fans were first treated to a glimpse of Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther in last year’s ‘Captain America: Civil War’, while he’s also set to reprise the part in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, slated for release next year.
‘Black Panther’ - which we’ve already named as one of the entertainment offerings we’re most excited for next year - will hit UK cinemas on 9 February 2018.
Joining Chadwick and Lupita in the all-star cast will be Michael B Jordan and Daniel Kaluuya, best known for his part in ‘Get Out’ earlier this year.
