Since the global and early premiere showings of Marvel’s epic Black Panther film, fans online have been suggesting that co-stars Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o have been looking a little cozy. The Hollywood stars have egged on the chatter of rumors with a series of playful and flirty tweets, hinting at the fact there’s a little Wakanda love in the air.
It appears that the pair had a bet that Jordan apparently lost, which called for Nyong’o to demand push-ups whenever she wants. During a taping of The View, Nyong’o cashed in on her bet in a surprise ambush that Erik Killmonger would have appreciated, and it the exchanges didn’t end there.
