LUPITA NYONG’O was officially confirmed for the upcoming Black Panther movie at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday (July 22).

The Oscar-winning actress joined director Ryan Coogler and leading man Chadwick Boseman and Michael B Jordan at the fan convention where it was revealed she’ll star as a character called Nakia in the Marvel movie.

And in a surprise for fans, it was also announced that The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira is also coming on board.

The 33-year-old 12 Years A Slave star has become a regular part of the Disney family, that owns the rights to Marvel characters, having already landed a recurring role in the Star Wars franchise and providing a voice for Raksha in the studio’s recently released retelling of the Jungle Book.
