It is no secret that Michaela Coel is having quite the year. From sweeping up Emmy nominations and taking home BAFTAs to establishing herself as a style icon with the help of British designer Maximilian, the multi-faceted actress has made it known that she is a force to be reckoned with. Now, in a true testament to her talent, speculation is suggesting that she is about to embark on arguably her biggest career move yet by joining the coveted cast of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Standing as the sequel to the era-defining Black Panther film led by Michael B. Jordan and the late Chadwick Boseman, the upcoming movie has been one of the most anticipated follow-up projects of the last decade. However, aside from the news that filming is reportedly underway, very little information about the new project has been given away – until now. And, the prospect of Michaela Coel making her Marvel debut alongside the likes of Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira in an action-packed masterpiece has fans overflowing with excitement.
While Michaela and Marvel are both yet to comment on or confirm this exciting news, movie fans can rest assured in the knowledge that speculation is usually born out of some sort of truth. And, if the rumours are to be believed, it is fair to say that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is shaping up to be a truly explosive tribute to the original film.
