Third time’s a charm! Michael B. Jordan will reportedly team up with Creed director Ryan Coogler as one part of the star-studded cast of Marvel Studio’s Black Panther.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jordan, 29, will act alongside Lupita Nyong’o and Chadwick Boseman in the action-packed superhero flick. Boseman will reprise his role as title character T’Challa (superhero pseudonym: Black Panther); the actor previously portrayed him in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

No details have yet been released about who Jordan will play, but one source tells The Hollywood Reporter that it could be a villain.

Black Panther has been making headlines for being the first Marvel movie with a predominately black cast.

Jordan and Coogler previously teamed up for 2015’s award-winning film Creed, as well as 2013’s Fruitvale Station, Coogler’s feature film directing debut.

The actor swept the NAACP Image Awards in February following his snub at the Oscars, even taking home the hardware for Entertainer of the Year for his turn as Apollo Creed’s son, opposite Sylvester Stallone.
