Winston Duke Is Man-Ape in Black Panther

29 September 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production slated to begin this coming January on Marvel's Black Panther, the studio has brought on Person of Interest star Winston Duke as M'Baku, a.k.a. Man-Ape. This villainous character is said to have a "key role" in this adaptation. It isn't known if Man-Ape will be aligned with the movie's main villain, Erik Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan, but this casting may shed some light on a cryptic statement by Lupita Nyong'o.

During Marvel's Comic-Con presentation, the studio brought out Chadwick Boseman as T'challa, who was introduced in Captain America: Civil War along with his co-stars Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger), Danai Gurira (Okoye) and Lupita Nyong'o (Nakia). During interviews after the presentation, Lupita Nyong'o revealed the first story details, stating that Black Panther's "leadership is threatened when two foes come together," as T'challa seeks the help of both the CIA and the Dora Miljae. »

6 September 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Former One Direction member Zayn Malik is developing a scripted series with NBC, inspired by his own life and experiences in the boy band, Variety has learned.

Dick Wolf is a legend and the opportunity to work with him and NBC to create a compelling drama series is awesome,” said Malik.

Noelle Wolf first brought the project to NBC with Unigram’s Amanda GhostGregor Cameron, and First Access Entertainment’s Sarah Stennett. Stennett will serve as executive music producer and will manage all music rights created in the series, in »
