In the Black Panther sequel, Marvel may have just cast their first X-Men character.
MARVEL has cast a new actor for the next Black Panther sequel, Black Panther Wakanda Forever, but could she play a major role in the X-Men franchise?
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) will introduce a slew of new characters over the coming few years. Marvel purchased the movie rights to its characters from FOX last year. The Fantastic Four, Blade, Ghost Rider, and the X-Men were among the superheroes included in this lineup. The most recent casting for the impending Black Panther sequel might represent the start of the future X-Men lineup.

Michaela Coel has been cast in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which was announced this week.
The British actress is best known for writing, directing, producing, and starring in the critically acclaimed HBO series I May Destroy You.
The 33-year-old was nominated for four Emmys for this limited series.
For the time being, the details of Coel’s character in the MCU film have been kept under wraps.
Despite this, it’s possible that the celebrity will play Storm, the African X-Men leader who has mastery over the weather.

Storm has a long history with the Black Panther franchise, having married T’Challa (previously Chadwick Boseman) and becoming Queen of Wakanda.
Storm, also known as Ororo Munroe, is portrayed in the comic books as an African idol who should be revered and praised.
Professor Charles Xavier, the man behind the X-Men, eventually asked her to join his team.
Storm takes over as the commander of the Mutant fighting squad after Cyclops stepped down, establishing her as one of Marvel’s most powerful characters.
Storm became the headmistress of the Jean Grey School later in the novel.
A lot would change if Coel was introduced to the MCU as Storm.
Her arrival would not only kickstart the X-Men, one of Marvel’s most powerful armies, but it would also debut the Mutants themselves.
In Marvel comic books, the Mutants are a marginalized group of people who have been a source of strife for decades.
