Eddie Murphy is Marvel's Black Panther in Hilarious Spoof
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther is played by Chadwick Boseman, but in this spoof by Funny and Die, Eddie Murphy is T'Challa. This is fitting for the comedian who played the prince of Zamunda in his classic 1988 film Coming to America.
The video splices footage from Coming to America and Marvel's Black Panther to show us what it's like if Prince Akeem becomes the king and protector of Wakanda.
Watch the funny video below:
There's not a lot of action scenes in Coming to America but the trailer splices the few footage it has such as the part when Akeem had a duel with Semmi (Arsenio Hall). Seeing Eddie Murphy backflip is probably the closest thing that Black Panther would do.
Ryan Coogler's Black Panther will be released in theaters on February 16, 2018.
