Fresh from this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios has confirmed the three new cast members for the upcoming Black Panther.

The titular character, Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa, debuted in this year’s Captain America: Civil War, and Creed’s Ryan Coogler will be helming the King of Wakanda’s 2018 movie.

As for the other principal players, confirming many previous reports, Boseman will be joined by Creed’s Michael B. Jordan as the villainous Erik Kilmonger, 12 Years a Slave’s Lupita Nyong’o as Killmonger agent Nakia, and The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira as Okoye, one of the wives-in-training for T’Challa. In addition to these newly-confirmed additions, it’s believed that Andy Serkis’ Ulysses Klaw and Martin Freeman’s Everett Ross will also be a part of the movie.

The film’s SDCC presence saw it revealed that production will star in January in Atlanta, Georgia. Coogler will be writing and directing the effort ahead of its February 16th, 2018 release.
