The Imay Destroy You star has now joined the MCU universe; this was confirmed by Variety, which said that the 33-year-old British star has joined the cast of the much-anticipated Black Panther sequel.
While the details surrounding her role remain under secret, sources claims that she joined the film’s director, Ryan Coogler, at Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios, where production kicked off last month.
More about the project per Complex
The project, titled Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is expected to hit theaters in July 2022, which will be nearly two years after its original titular star, Chadwick Boseman, died from colon cancer. Coogler, Marvel, and Disney confirmed they would not recast Boseman’s role of T’Challa, but have not announced which actor/character will step into Black Panther’s shoes.
