A pair of new Black Panther images has been released online in addition to details from Michael B. Jordan.
“It took me to a dark place,” Michel B. Jordan said about the movie as he plays Erik Killmonger (via Empire). “Honestly, I can’t really go through all I went through to get into it because I want to keep that close to me. But it stuck with me afterwards.”
It wasn’t all dark as Jordan admitted to having fun “had a lot of fun on set” with Chadwick Boseman. “Chadwick’s a very talented dude. There’s a lot of physical moments and action sequences throughout this film that cause us to really challenge ourselves, and also fall deeper into character.”
Check out the images below!
