Ever since her Oscar moment, we’ve been waiting for Lupita Nyong’o’s big movie follow up. She voiced the character of Maz Kanta in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and also voiced the wolf in The Jungle Book and while Lupita’s voice is incredible, we’re like, Hey girl, we want to SEE you.  To be fair, she DID take a break from Hollywood to star in a play, which is the height of chicness tbh, but now she’s back in LaLa land and is set to star in a Marvel film!

Lupita will star in an upcoming Marvel flick — unfortunately, she’s not the titular character. That honor goes to Chadwick Boseman, who will star in 2018’s Black Panther, a Marvel superhero we just met in this month’s Captain America: Civil War.

Lupita’s character has yet to be revealed, only that she is playing Black Panther’s love interest and we are here for that!

These two beautiful humans are going to play lovers which is great because LOOK AT THIS CHEMISTRY ALREADY!
