There is a God!

Fine a** Chadwick Boseman was front and center, looking GOODT as ever for last night's world premiere of Avengers: Infinity War.  Star T’Challa, we mean Chadwick, kept it dapper in a green custom tailored Prada suit and Louboutin Homme shoes as he represented for the Wakandans inbox office smashing film Black Panther.


Avengers is like the Super Bowl of Marvel superhero films, which means EVERYONE is in it.

The legend that is Angela Bassett made her way on the carpet in a white, blue and green jumpsuit by Mario Dice. Her hubby Courtney B. Vance wasn’t far behind, per usual. We love how they are always supporting each other’s’ projects.

Black Panther star Letita Wright put her own spin a on a feminine pantsuit. The 24-year-old rocked a funky printed Prada suit that was custom made for her. The outfit featured black tulle around the waist to resemble a skirt. We feelin’ it?

Selfie time!

Samuel L. Jackson made his way on the carpet, however it's still unclear if he will actually make a cameo in the film or not. He was spotted hanging around the Marvel set during filming, but it still hasn't been confirmed if he's acting in it.

During the opening, Avengers star/Iron Man Robert Downy Jr. hopped on the mic to give praise to Black Panther. However, the joke he made afters has us like "umm..."

"Wakanda forever!" Robert said to the audience as he turned around to look at Chadwick. "I can say that as an honorary black man.”

OH? If you didn't know, it seems Robert was referring to his blackface role in 2008's Tropic Thunder. Putting black paint on your face doesn't automatically qualify you as an honorary black man. Especially when we haven't heard you speak up not once about all the racial injustices going down in in America and beyond.

Peep a new trailer of Avengers: Infinity War below:

Also, check out a clip Shuri (played by Letitia Wright) schooling her co-stars below:



Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters this Friday and it's being predicted it'll rake in $498 million for the worldwide box office opening.
