Marvel Studios announced that production has begun on the newest chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe “Black Panther,” starring Chadwick Boseman in the titular role, alongside a star-studded cast including Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Freeman, Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis. - Check out their tweets below!

Serkis's appearance would mean a confirmation on the rumours that Panther villain Ulysses Klaue, or Klaw, will be in the film. 
Additional cast members include Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown and John Kani. Ryan Coogler directs Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” from a screenplay he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole. 

The film, which opens in Singapore cinemas on February 15, 2018, will be shot in Atlanta and South Korea.  
“Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk. 
Based on the Marvel comic character that first appeared in “Fantastic Four Vol. 1” Issue 52, published in 1966, “Black Panther” joins Marvel Studios’ slate of releases  in its Phase 3 commitment to introduce film audiences to new heroes and continue the adventures of fan favorites over the course of four years and nine films.
In 2016, Marvel Studios continued its unprecedented success with the release of “Captain America: Civil War,” which opened on April 24 in Singapore with the fifth largest opening weekend of all time and has since garnered box office receipts of over $1.1 billion worldwide.
