Black Panther gave the world more than a much-needed movie dedicated to black excellence — it offered an excellent commentary on the black experience, action-packed scenes about securing the (fictional) world’s most powerful metal, and *SPOILER* Danai Gurira throws her wig as a weapon.
The two have been spotted getting all sorts of cozy and comfortable (clock them in matching pajamas on their first-class flight below, as you do), and sharing flirty pick-up lines on Twitter – one of them ended in Michael asking Lupita if she was ready for round two. Yes, girl, he did!
Lupita’s also making him do “on-call” push-ups thanks to an undisclosed bet that he has lost, but we’ve all won. Shall we?
Here he is doing some calisthenics on set of The View.

Also have you seen their warm embraces while doing their press tours!? True love! (TMZ has reported that the flirtmance is “more about promoting [Black Panther]” than a real-deal love connection, but whatever, you can’t fake all that chemistry!)
LOOK AT THEM.
Here they are on a dinner date. Yeah, there are other people there too, but they’re sitting next to each other and Michael can’t stop panning the camera to her. Oh, to be a fly on that wall!
He also tweeted for her to “bring them chocolate cakes back.” Okay! Go ahead, Michael!
Sadly, this initial tweet was a dare and he deleted it, but does Lupita know that!? Who cares if it’s a dare as long as it’s true, right?
Everyone else definitely approves of this relationship

If anyone were to take Michael from me, Lupita is a more-than-worthy opponent. Bless you, Lupita. She is truly down for the cause and giving us more Michael in Marvel-shape.
Here for this!
