Is Prince Akeem Joffer the real Black Panther? According to this Funny or Die spoof, he is!

Makers from the comedy video website have mashed up Eddie Murphy’s classic 1988 comedy Coming to America with the trailer for the upcoming Marvel movie, with some very funny results.

In fact, combining the two films works rather well, especially when you consider that Prince Akeem is used to carrying royal duties, and seems a worthy fit to lead the fictional African nation of Wakanda, just like T’Challa. Not that Chadwick Boseman should lose any sleep just yet.

Excitement for the new movie – which is set to be released Feb. 16, 2018 – has been palpable among fans. The latest trailer dropped a number of things to get excited about, many of which you can revisit in the spoof above, hopefully while having a couple of good laughs while you're at it.
