It's learned Michael B. Jordan has been cast in the upcoming Black Panther movie.

THR reports Michael B. Jordan may actually play a villain in the film, opposite Chadwick Boseman.

Jordan recently starred as the Human Torch in Fox's Fantastic Four flop, which is not connected to the Marvel Studios movies.

Jordan also starred in Ryan Coogler's Creed who is helming Black Panther as well.

Potential villains Jordan could play in Black Panther include: Man-Ape, Erik Killmonger, Achebe, Damon Dran, Death Tiger, Morgan, Solomon Prey, Sombre, T'shan, or how about Blade?

Star Wars' Lupita Nyong’o is also said to be in negotiations to star in Black Panther.

Chris Evans also jumped ship from playing the Human Torch to Captain America; that worked out well, so should Michael B. Jordan.

Black Panther has a Feb. 2, 2018 release date.
