Guess who’s joining the MARVEL UNIVERSE!??
Michaela Coel of ‘I May Destroy You’ fame!
According to an exclusive Variety report, the 33-year-old British actress has joined the cast of the much-anticipated Black Panther sequel. The details surrounding her role remain under wraps, but sources tell the outlet Coel has joined the film’s director, Ryan Coogler, at Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios, where production kicked off last month.
Coel exploded onto Hollywood’s radar in 2020 with her critically acclaimed HBO Max series “I May Destroy You,” for which she’s received four Emmy nominations. In addition to writing, directing and producing, Coel starred in the show as a popular writer processing rape trauma in contemporary London.
Coel’s credits include the Netflix programs “Black Mirror” and “Chewing Gum,” and the feature films “Been So Long” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” She is not currently represented by a talent agency. She works through her indie label Falkna Productions, which co-produced “I May Destroy You.”
