Lupita Nyongo is rumored to be in talks for a role in Black Panther
Micheal B Jordan is also rumored to be in talks.

Director Ryan Coogler talking about Black Panther
“It’s a specific challenge,” Coogler said. “What Marvel’s doing, and what you see a lot of studios doing now that Marvel has done it so successfully, is making content that exists in a particular universe, where the characters tie in and crossover, and I think that’s a great creative challenge to me — to make this movie as personal as possible. It’s going to be my most personal movie to date, which is crazy to say, but it’s completely the case. I’m obsessed with this character and this story right now, and I think it’s going to be very unique and still fit into the overall narrative that they’re establishing. I grew up as a comic book fan, and the same things used to happen in the comic books. You’d have Wolverine’s books, and they’d be so much darker and more brutal than the X-Men books, but they’d still fit in when you open the pages of the X-Men book. It’s new to movies, but it’s not new to storytelling.”
Another person rumored to be in talks is John Boyega

Have you seen that video tease that just came out, with BP riding on top of a car as it speeds down the road? Getting lots of buzz I think.

“I’m super excited about an African king who is also strong enough, fast enough, smart enough to do some of the things that T’Challa is going to do in this film,” director Ryan Coogler said
