Chadwick Boseman has become the star of one of the highest-grossing films of all time, and so his ties to Black Panther may never leave him. At least, that’s how the cast of Saturday Night Live operates in the first video promoting the actor’s upcoming hosting appearance.

Boseman will host the show on this Saturday, Apr. 7, alongside musical guest Cardi B, and the Marvel jokes will likely be aplenty. The promo whetting audiences’ appetite for Wakandan gags can be seen below, and features Kenan Thompson, Kate McKinnon, and Beck Bennett trying to score some Vibranium from Boseman.

It goes about as well as you’d expect:

After fighting off a far-less-formidable force than he faced in Black Panther, Boseman leaves the SNL cast after their extraterrestrial metal thievery fails, leaving their show even shoddier than expected.

This will be the actor’s first time hosting the program and his first return to TV since an appearance on Detroit 1-8-7 in 2011. Will you be watching?
