The highly anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther” is generating more hype as time goes by. Recently, Marvel added Sterling K. Brown to the pool of astounding cast members for the film. He will join Chadwick Boseman, who plays T’Challa or the Black Panther. Furthermore, he will play N’Jobu, a person from T’Challa’s past.
Brown did not reveal the nature of his role, but the actor sat down with The Undefeated and talked about the rise of black characters in superhero films. The “Black Panther,” according to him, would never have happened. So, he expects a lot from the film and its impact to the industry.
Sterling Brown spills the ‘Black Panther’ cast members
Marvel has been secretive with the film’s cast members. During Brown’s interview, he accidentally leaked the name of another African-American cast member. Brown revealed that Phylicia Rashad, a talented actress, will be one of the cast members.
In the interview, the actor stated that he worked with Boseman in “Marshall.” He commended Boseman’s acting prowess and stated that he fully inhabits T’Challa. Brown discussed his other projects until the question fell on how he felt working for “Black Panther.”
Brown then revealed his enthusiasm to work with fantastic actors. He named the actors joining the filming: Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Phylicia Rashad and Danai Gurira. The aforementioned names were revealed as cast members for the film except Phylicia Rashad.
Marvel has not made any announcement regarding Rashad’s participation. Due to this, it seems like Brown made a mistake announcing her name. Despite the slip of the tongue, the public is aware of the talent Rashad brings to the table. She had played spectacular roles in television and movies. Her screen credits include “Creed,” “Good Deeds” and “For Colored Girls.”
Brown believes that the ‘Black Panther’ will have social relevance
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Brown stated that the film has social relevance rather than the nonstop adrenaline present in action films. The actor said that the film is “politically astute” and “socially relevant.” He added that the story addresses the plight of Africans and African-Americans in the U.S. and around the world. As a result, the realism of the plot will bring excitement to the masses. The film’s release is set on February 2018.
