'Black Panther' Cast Answers Pressing Internet Questions But Leave A Mystery On The Table

How many languages can Lupita speak?

With Black Panther hype at an all-time high, it's about time we got to know a little more about the cast of Marvel's latest blockbuster. So, what better way for that to happen than for a few of them to answer the internet's most-searched questions about the movie and themselves?


A few of the film's stars — Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther himself), Lupita Nyong'o (Nakia), and Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger) — just took part in Wired's Autocomplete Interview. While there were a few questions about the flick itself, mostly pitting Black Panther against other superheroes, the real fun was had when things got a little more personal.

People asked a lot about Boseman's personal life, such as how many siblings he has (he won't tell), where he's from (South Carolina), if he can dance (of course he can), and if he can sing (Nyong'o says he kills it at karaoke). When it came to if he does stunts himself, Boseman responds: "I love doing stunts and I do as much as I can do."

As for Jordan, people wanted to know which Zodiac sign he is (Aquarius), if he was related to basketball legend Michael Jordan (sorry, but no), and if he plays basketball (yep). Then they wanted to know if he got knocked out filming Creed. "Not technically knocked out," he says, "but I definitely took a real punch to the face and it wasn't that fun."

When it came to Nyong'o, people wanted to know where she is right now (at the time, chilling with Boseman), what makeup she uses (that'll be Lancôme), and what languages she speaks (English, Spanish, Swahili, and Luo).

Could the Black Panther cast be any cooler? We think not.
