Lupita Nyong'o Went Undercover at Comic-Con and It Was Too Cute
Did you spot a very excited pink Power Ranger dancing her way through San Diego Comic-Con this weekend? If so, you probably saw Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o.
The actress stopped by this year’s Comic-Con to tease the upcoming Black Panther movie and debut some top-secret new footage, but apparently, when she wasn’t on stage in Hall H, she donned some pink spandex and took to the convention floor.
Nyong’o later shared a joyful video of her undercover antics on Twitter, set to Kendrick Lamar’s “i,” showing the actress dancing across the hall floor, posing with fellow cosplayers, and tracking down a Maz Kanata figurine. (Nyong’o voices the elderly alien in The Force Awakens.)
Nyong’o stars in Black Panther as Nakia, a covert agent from the fictional nation of Wakanda, and she and her costars—including Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Forest Whitaker, Letitia Wright, Michael B. Jordan, Winston Duke, and Andy Serkis—received a standing ovation when they premiered new footage from the upcoming superhero flick. For a full breakdown of the secret footage, check out EW’s recap here.
Black Panther will hit theaters Feb. 16.
