According to a report by POC Culture, Marvel Studios is currently searching for actors to portray foreign mercenaries and diplomats for an upcoming film. The report indicates that the roles are for a production getting underway in the U.S. in July and the only film that fits that description is Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The report indicates that the studio is casting for males and females, 40-60, to play a French and Dutch diplomat and males and females, 20-40, to play French and Dutch mercenaries.
Little is known about how the film will move forward with the story of T’Challa given the tragic death of star Chadwick Boseman, but should the film deal with the death of Wakanda’s protector and King, it’s likely that the nation could face threats from the outside as it deals with his passing and naming the next Black Panther. If what we’ve heard about the film is true, French and Dutch diplomats and mercs will be the least of Wakanda’s worries.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set to begin production this July and will be in theaters July 8, 2022.
