British actress Michaela Cole has been cast in the new iteration of Black Panther in an unnamed role. Some fans want Cole to play Storm from X-Men in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

However, others want Cole to play Aneka, the lesbian partner of Dora Milaje's second commander Ayo (Florence Kasumba).

Cole, 33, is an award-winning actress best known for the hit HBO Max comedy/drama I May Destroy You.

Black Panther 2, directed by Ryan Coogler, checks all of the "woke" boxes.

The film features an all-Black cast that includes several down low, homosexual actors, as well as an aromantic actress.

Production began on Black Panther 2 in June at Atlanta's Pinewood Studios.

Cole identifies as aromantic. Many on Black Twitter are wondering what "aromantic" means.

Aromantic is a sexual orientation defined as showing a lack of interest in romantic attraction.

Aromantic is an individual who is interested in sex without the emotional attachment that goes along with it.

Aromantic is not the same as asexual, which means people who have no desire in sexual relationships.

People who are aromantic desire affection and cuddling in short bursts. They can go days, weeks, or months without sex.

Individuals who identify as aromantic may have trouble distinguishing the affection of family and friends from that of a romantic partner.

Being aromantic doesn't mean you're not drawn to others, it just means you're drawn to them in non-romantic ways.

Aromantic people typically have zero sex appeal.

Celebrities described as aromantic include music producer Kanye West, singer Demi Lovato and rapper Lil Nas X.

Marvel fans were excited about Black Panther's official title treatment. The new Black Panther, currently filming on location in Atlanta, will be a tribute to actor Chadwick Boseman who died from colon cancer last August at age 43.

Fans wonder how Marvel will explain Wakanda's king dying from cancer with all of the fictional country's advanced technology.

One Reddit user wrote: "I wonder if they'll outright just be like 'it was a rare cancer. even with all of our technology we could not cure cancer.'"

Another user wrote:

"Yea. Because I don't see anyone killing T'challa. He must either go voluntarily back to the D'jalia (ancestral plain) or he has to have an ailment from the snap and the heart shaped herb. No one should kill him. After all he told his father that he had to make things right before he joined him in the Djalia."

Question: How do you think Marvel will explain T'Challa's disappearance?

Chadwick Boseman has passed away following a 4-year battle with cancer, his team announced on social media.

Boseman, 43, died at his home surrounding by family, PEOPLE reports.

"It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman," the Instagram post read. "Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV."

"A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy."

The actor was best known for his portrayal of a Black superhero in Marvel Studio's Black Panther (2018).

Boseman is also known for his portrayals of real-life historical figures such as Jackie Robinson in "42", James Brown in "Get on Up" and Thurgood Marshall in "Marshall."

Boseman was last seen in public entering a hospital in Santa Monica, Calif. in July. He was accompanied by his fiancée, Taylor Simone.

He was hospitalized weeks after fans expressed concern over his skeletal appearance. His drastic weight loss was explained away as weight loss for a movie role.

In 2018, Boseman became emotional when discussing his visit with two young fans who died of cancer before Black Panther was released.

"Throughout our filming, I was communicating with them, knowing they were both terminal. What they and their parents said to me was, they were trying to hold on 'til this movie comes," he said during an EW SiriusXM Town Hall.

"To a certain degree it's a humbling experience because you're like, this can't mean that much to them," he said. "But seeing how the world has taken this on, I realize they anticipated something great. Thinking back now to when I was a kid, waiting for Christmas to come, waiting for my birthday to come, waiting for a toy I was gonna get a chance to experience, or a video game, I did live life waiting for those moments. It put me back in the mind of being a kid and feeling those two boys' anticipation of this movie."
