Cape Town – Marvel announced on Thursday that production for the much-anticipated Black Panther movie has officially begun.

And together with the announcement, they also revealed the full cast, which includes SA actor John Kani who will be reprising his role as King T’Chaka.

Fans were freaking out on Twitter on Saturday morning about the news of Kani’s return, with a tweet sharing the full cast for Black Panther even trending on the social media platform. See the tweet below:
