Various news and entertainment outlets likeScreen Rantjust recently toured around Black Panther's set, and during their visit, Moore spoke about the various roles about the film, saying that director Ryan Coogler was interested in exploring the different relationships in the film. Given that the film's teaser trailer shows T'Challa and Shuri standing in front of a pair of near-identical Black Panther costumes, some have speculated that perhaps she'll follow in the footsteps of her comic-book-counterpart and suit up, herself. "That would be fun, and we'd always thought that'd be fun, but what we didn't expect and what he really wanted to explore is the depth of the emotional connections between T'Challa and those individuals". For those who aren't familiar with the Black Panther comics, the Dora Milaje also serve as a pool of potential wives for the King of Wakanda, and it seems like Marvel Studios would rather not have that bit included in the film. Case in point: Black Panther's newly-released clip, which features a small portion of that blistering vehicle chase scene that was shot on location in South Korea. They're just 20 or 25 years ahead of us. "So we will not be exploring that".
The movie features a cast that includes Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa (Black Panther), Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, John Kani as T'Chaka, Sterling K. Brown as N'Jobu, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, and Winston Duke as M'Baku (Man-Ape).
