Film with predominantly black actors was overdue - Black Panther's Andy Serkis

Film with predominantly black actors was overdue - Black Panther's Andy Serkis

The timing of "Black Panther" couldn't have been better.

Black Panther is going to be an important, dare I say revolutionary, film for several reasons - it's one of the first times that an nearly exclusively African-American cast, along with director Ryan Coogler, have been handed such a large property. But Jordan, normally cast as a good guy underdog for prior roles, has admitted that he did have to stretch-and dig deep-when it came to bringing the dark and conflicted character of Killmonger credibly to life for the film.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain on Thursday, the 53-year-old actor who plays Ulysses Klaue in the Marvel movie said: 'I had a tussle with Chadwick Boseman and it was pretty painful'.

"Black Panther", the new black Marvel superhero movie, won rave reviews on Tuesday with critics praising both its adventure and its portrayal of a majestic Africa.

However, the project - directed by Ryan Coogler - is more than just a Hollywood blockbuster.

Boseman, Jordan, Nyong'o, Gurira, Kaluuya, Freeman and Wright are all expected to attend.

Backstory: T'Challa's nemesis, who, when exiled from Wakanda, became an American black-ops soldier whose mission is to overthrow the Wakandan king.

Kendrick Lamar and SZA have unveiled the new music video for their Black Panther soundtrack collaboration, "All The Stars".

Sure, there are elements of an origin story sprinkled throughout Ryan Coogler's MCU spinoff, while its titular king runs about in a "bulletproof catsuit", but beneath the surface is an inspired, nuanced and, crucially, Afrocentric tale of heroism and family, as Chadwick Boseman's grieving T'Challa takes his seat on the throne.

I have to go [to Africa] if I'm making this movie.

The movie is slated to be released on February 16.
