Marvel's Captain America: Civil WarBlack Panther/T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman)Photo Credit: Film Frame© Marvel 2016 just made his debut as Black Panther/T'Challa, warrior king of Marvel's African nation Wakanda, in "Captain America: Civil War," and now fans are more curious than ever about his upcoming solo film.

Thankfully, it sounds like fans don't have to worry about whitewashing for "Black Panther"; Marvel boss Kevin Feige told Empire Film Podcast (via ComicBook.com) that "90 percent of the cast is either African or African-American." He added that it "will be amongst the best ensembles we've ever had."

Just recently, American Michael B. Jordan ("Fantastic Four") and Kenyan-Mexican Lupita Nyong'o ("Star Wars: The Force Awakens") were announced as joining the cast.

88th Annual Academy Awards - Backstage And AudienceAs The Hollywood Reporter noted, this will be the third time that Jordan works with his "Creed" and "Fruitvale Station" director , who is helming the Marvel film. A source told THR that Jordan could be playing a villain in the movie, but that was not confirmed.

What about the remaining 10 percent? Collider said they'd be surprised if Martin Freeman's Everett K. Ross didn't appear, and further guessed "Maybe we'll even see Andy Serkis' Ulysses Klaue make a return."

Production on "Black Panther" is scheduled to start in early 2017, with a current release date of February 16, 2018.
