Black Panther 2 Looking For Mayan Warriors


A casting call has gone out for Black Panther 2 as Marvel is searching for a pair of Mayan warriors for the movie.

The call sheet also reveals a tentative filming schedule for Black Panther 2 as it is noted the actors are needed to work from April to November.

The roles are for a male and a female:

CADMAEL – Male, 20s-40s, Mayan. 6’0″ (1.8m) or taller. Powerful, strong, a loyal warrior and formidable presence. Any fight or stunts experience is a huge plus.

ZYANYA – Female, 20s-40s, Mayan. Fierce, cunning, a great warrior. Physical training or fight/dance experience is a plus. 

The casting call also says that “while the characters are Mayan, we welcome submissions of actors from all North American and South American Indigenous backgrounds.”

It’s unknown why Mayan warriors are needed for Black Panther 2, but some fans are guessing it may have something to do with Namor and the Atlanteans who are rumored for the flick.

Black Panther 2 has a July 8, 2022 release written and directed by Ryan Coogler.
