Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o has signed on for a big movie where we actually get to look at her again. THR reports that the Jungle Book and Force Awakens motion-capture/voice actor is in talks to join the Marvel Universe as the love interest for Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa in Black Panther. Though Black Panther's eventual wife in the comics was Ororo Munroe, aka Storm, and Nyong'o would be a pretty much ideal Storm, that won't be the case here due to the ongoing rights issues with 20th Century Fox. Isn't that stupid? Also, is "T'Challa" a legitimate African name or is that sort of fucked up but we're not talking about it? I'm genuinely not sure.
