The King of Wakanda is tearing through the box office, and currently he’ll stake his claim on late night tv.
NBC simply declared that Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman will host the April 7th episode of Saturday Night Live, along side musical guest and Grammy Award nominated Cardi B
Boseman is the second star of Black Panther to host the sketch comedy show this season, following Sterling K. Brown who handled those duties just last week. If the writing employees is on their game once again, expect another robust performing involving the superhero much like the one with T’Challa’s Uncle M’Butu.
Of course, the Black Panther star will have lots to celebrate when he hosts Saturday Night Live, as his 1st solo film continues to dominate the box office. The film is ready to be number one at the box office for the fifth week in a row, and has already made over $1.2 billion in theaters.
And then Boseman will also be able to hype up his appearance in the future Avengers: infinity War, of that he is set to play a major part. Wakanda will figure heavily into the battle between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Thanos’ Black Order, positioning the Black Panther’s kingdom at the forefront of the Marvel cinematic Universe for the future.
This will be Boseman’s first time hosting, that cements him as a contemporary cultural icon. Hopefully Saturday Night Live makes use of his abilities and puts him in some funny situations that fans won’t be used to seeing from the King of Wakanda.
Boseman’s episode of Saturday Night Live premieres April 7th.
Black Panther is currently taking part in in theaters, whereas Avengers: infinity War will premiere on April 27th.
