Things just keep getting better for Sterling K. Brown and his fans. The 40-year-old actor is officially part of the Black Panther cast and we couldn’t be more excited.

On Thursday, Marvel announced on their website that Brown has joined the cast of the upcoming Marvel movie as N’Jobu. N’Jobu is a figure from T’Challa aka the Black Panther’s past and with Brown’s acting skills he’s bound to be a character you won’t forget.

Brown will act alongside Chadwick Boseman who is set to play the lead, Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o and Angela Bassett.

While the cast is continually being announced, the production company and studio have yet to release any details about the plot of the future film.

What we do know is that we’ve already been introduced to the Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War, so we’re probably not going to need to have a full-on origin film.

No matter what the storyline, we’re excited to see Black Panther in his own film with Brown as one of its awesome characters.

Black Panther is set to hit theaters on February 16, 2018.
