Rumors are circling that Phylicia Rashad is  joining Marvel’s Black Panther. As reported by Vibe, the talk of Rashad possibly joining the film began when This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown, himself recently added to the cast, was being interviewed by The Undefeated and let Rashad’s name slip when discussing the film.

“I just worked with Chad [Boseman] on a film called Marshall, about Thurgood Marshall. He’s such a talented human being and a deep soul,” Brown said. “He’s the perfect personality to fully inhabit T’Challa. So, to rejoin him, and to work with Academy Award winners … to be with Michael B. Jordan after the incredible work he’s done in Creed. Danai Gurira, Phylicia Rashad, Forest Whitaker — like, it’s embarrassing.”

In a telling twist, after it was released, Rashad’s name was edited out of Brown’s statement. We’ll definitely keep you posted!
