WWE’s Kofi Kingston is pushing to be in the upcoming MCU Black Panther series

Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and Big E have shown their various fans with their paddling equipment throughout their run of history making as The New Day. Their latest equipment is a clear homage to Thor: Love and Thunder Kingston was asked about it during a new interview with TMZ Sports. He explained, “We just put things out there and hope for the best, you know what I mean? We’re all big Marvel fans, DC fans. Anytime we can incorporate pop culture into what we do, it hits with a certain audience. That’s what made us …that street gives us credibility with people. We have that bond.”

Subsequently, the former WWE Champion pushed to participate in the upcoming untitled Black Panther Disney+ series set in Wakanda (known as Black Panther: Kingdom of Wakanda) – “There are a lot of us Marvel fans. I myself, [Xavier] Woods and [Big] E–your boys, new day–love to be in a Marvel movie. I know Black Panther movie got a whole series. As you know, we already fit the mold. I was born in the motherland, you know what I’m saying? Put your son on the show.”

The MCU is no stranger to the involvement of professional wrestlers, with former WWE Champion Dave Bautista playing Drax the Destroyer, a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, in several films. Becky Lynch also confirmed in an interview with ComicBook during WrestleMania weekend that their conversations were about her taking on a role as well.

Kingston has built a legacy as one of the most active superstars in WWE, holding the gold medal in the Tag Team Championship 11 times along with the WWE, Intercontinental and United States Championships.

Big E, the third member of The New Day, suffered a broken neck earlier this year and has been on the road to recovery ever since. Kingston, who was collaborating with E on the episode of SmackDown where the injury occurred, opened up about the incident on hot 97.

“It was easily the scariest night of my life,” Kingston said. “Obviously the injury didn’t happen to me, but I was on the inside of the ring. I see E go for that spear he’s doing, and he missed it, and he was out there and then him and Ridge, go to that upper suplex and I see them go up and they look a little wonky. But I didn’t. I never see the effect. So I didn’t really know – I didn’t know, you know, I went in there and was like, ‘Okay, everything looks fine’ it’s frustrating and everything and then the match goes on. After it all went down, it was the referee Just like yeah, I don’t know if he’s OK. I was like, what’s going on all of a sudden, the paramedics start and everything goes out.”

“It was really scary because it’s a reminder of how quickly things can take a turn for the worse,” he continued. “Every move we make, there is always an element of danger to it and luckily, most of the time, we come out unharmed, but in those moments — literally looking at my brother in the face while the paramedics put the neck braces and everything in there and put him on a stretcher was very scary.”
