After Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa debuted in Captain America: Civil War, there’s now talk on just who might be joining him when his solo movie rolls around in 2018.

The Hollywood Reporter has word that Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o is currently in talks to play the love interest of Boseman’s King of Wakanda. There’s no details just yet on who this character will be, however, although it could well be that she’ll be part of the Dora Milaje; the group of all-female bodyguards who serve Black Panther. As for Nyong’o, she wowed many with her turn in 12 Years a Slave before then memorably playing Maz Kanata in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

To be directed by Creed’s Ryan Coogler, Black Panther is set to start production early next year ahead of its February 16th, 2018 release date. It’s believed that the film will see Boseman’s titular hero battling Andy Serkis’ Ulysses Klaw, who appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
