Oscar winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o, is in negotiations to star opposite Chadwick Boseman in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther.
As The Hollywood Reporter revealed earlier Thursday, Lupita Nyong’o is in talks to join Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther. While the identity of the character she would play remains a mystery, sources told THR that she will play the love interest of Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa, the eponymous hero and ruler of the fictional African nation of Wakanda.
There’s just one problem with that idea. Traditionally, the Black Panther hasn’t been shown as a character with a lot of time for romance — and the one character he’s most closely associated with in that area is essentially off-limits to Marvel Studios.
With that in mind, here are five possibilities for who Nyong’o might end up bringing to life in the 2018 movie.
Panther has a February 2, 2018 release date with production aiming to start in early 2017. Watch the trailer below.
