Chadwick Boseman, recently seen as the warrior king T’Challa in Black Panther, is now returning to the mega screen as the first-ever non-Asian samurai.

Boseman has been roped in to play the first African Samurai to wield a sword in medieval era Japan.

According to The Deadline, who were the first ones to break the news, the upcoming flick is a tale of the legend of Yasuke, a Portuguese Mozambique slave who was brought to Japan in the 16th century.

Chadwick, who seemed pretty excited about his latest signing, described the movie as far more than just an action movie.

“That’s a cultural event, an exchange, and I am excited to be part of it.”
