Everything about this photo slays me, and makes me want to run to my nearest mirror to practice some fiercely determined poses. Our eyes definitely gravitate towards Michael B. Jordan's N’Jadaka/Erik Killmonger, who is a Wakanda exile scheming to overthrow King T'Challa. However, Lupita Nyong'o's Nakia comes in a close second on my personal Bad-Ass Meter.
The upcoming superhero film will take place after the events of Marvel's Captain America: Civil War. Chadwick Boseman is all set to portray the king, who returns to the fictional African nation of Wakanda to serve as the country’s new leader. While there, he'll be met with usurpers wanting to take the throne and enemies conspiring to destroy Wakanda.
The film is being helmed by director Ryan Coogler. For those of you who have seen Fruitvale Station and Creed, you know that's a good thing.
