The verdict? It’s lit.

As Chadwick Boseman is set to reprise the role he took on in Captain America: Civil War as the titled Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan has also officially joined on, reuniting with director Ryan Coogler who he worked with on Fruitvale Station and Creed.

A whole two years before the film is set for release, the Twittersphere has wasted no time on making it a trending topic, and the result is an anticipated mix of hilarity, honesty, and some good old-fashioned black pride. Check the best tweets about Black Panther by far.
