…They’re still casting black people* for all the major roles. Can Hollywood stand the strain? The sheer insanity?
Marvel has added a new villain to the mix in director Ryan Coogler‘s upcoming film Black Panther. Person of Interest actor Winston Duke will be taking on the role of Man-Ape. That means there are three villains in the film so far. The other two are Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger and Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaw. Duke also joins Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Danai Gurira, and Lupita Nyong’o.
Yeah, I’m being sarcastic. But less than I’d like. Even for a, you know, African-themed superhero story it’s still mildly noteworthy that they’re going to cast accordingly…
*And Andy Serkis. Soooooo… I guess we now know which character’s going to be mostly motion-capture?
