Yasss!

We've LOVED the casting Marvel Studios has been doing ever since bailing Robert Downey Jr. out of movie jail to become the biggest movie star on the planet.

And it's about time they backed up a truckload of money to Lupita Nyong'o's door!

After smaller roles in Disney's other megahits Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Jungle Book, the 12 Years A Slave Oscars winner is reportedly in talks to take the female lead in the Black Panther movie!

African superhero king T'Challa's introduction was one of the most lauded features of last week's Captain America: Civil War, and his solo film — out February 2, 2018 — should be a huge hit!

Who will Lupita play? That's where it gets interesting…

Her possible role is being kept under wraps for now, but she IS reportedly star Chadwick Boseman's love interest.

In the comics, Black Panther marries none other than…

Robert Downey Jr. has done an amazing job turning Iron Man into one of the most popular superheroes of all time, and he's doing it one more time in Captain America: Civil War.

Ahead of the superhero flick's Friday release, RDJ decided to stop by The Tonight Show on Thursday to show Jimmy Fallon his more somber side.

We're just kidding, he didn't take the interview seriously AT ALL! LOLz!

Kelly Ripa Almost Clocked Michael Strahan With A Bat During Robert Downey Jr. Pinata Segment! Watch The Cinco De Mayhem!

| Filed under: TV NewsKelly RipaRobert Downey Jr.

Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan must have made up behind the scenes. Why else would they trust them with blunt instruments already??

On Thursday morning's LIVE!, the cohosts welcomed Captain America: Civil War star Robert Downey Jr. — and in honor of Cinco de Mayo they let him take a swing at a Captain America piñata!

But when Iron Man couldn't hit the sweet spot, he stepped aside for the formerly (?) feuding hosts.

Worth noting that Michael courteously let Kelly have the first swing — and she was even looking out for him, noticing that he was standing in the path of her backswing!

Whew! Watch the close call that could have ended up in another Civil War (above)!
