No John Boyega For Black Panther


Contrary to internet rumor, John Boyega will not be appearing in the Black Panther movie.

Actually Boyega, known for the new Star Wars movies, teased Black Panther almost two years ago on Twitter.

"Marvel role? ....hehehe ... I'm dam right aiming for it," Boyega said. "Currently booking flight to wakanda."

However, Boyega's agent recently took to Twitter to shoot down any notion of John Boyega joining Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o and Michael B. Jordan on Black Panther.

"My client [John Boyega] will not be starring in Black Panther. Now for the news," Boyega's agent tweeted -- following Kevin Feige having followed him on Twitter.

John Boyega is currently filming Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Black Panther hits February 16, 2018 directed by Ryan Coogler.
