Listen listen! If you search “Black Panther 2 cast” on Google, it will bring up a pleasant surprise: Rihanna’s face! Yes, listed right alongside all the cast members from the first film who are reprising their roles—Michael B. Jordan, Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira and so forth—is Rihanna’s own photo.

The Google result came as a shock to Rihanna’s fanbase, since there had been no announcement or confirmation that the Grammy-winning singer and Fenty entrepreneur will be starring or making a cameo in the Black Panther sequel that’s slated for a 2022 release.

The Black Panther sequel was also not included on Rihanna’s list of IMDb projects. Although a Google search isn’t enough to confirm a cameo, fans took to Twitter with excited buzz regardless! “Is anyone gonna talk about how Rihanna is on the cast for BLACK PANTHER 2 like HUHHHHH,” one fan tweeted, sharing a screenshot of the Google search, while another fan wrote, “So why am I jussst finding out that Rihanna is listed as a cast member in Black Panther II .”

Other fans took the speculation a step further by guessing which role RiRi could play. Most placed their bets on Princess Zanda, who rules the African nation of Narobia in the Marvel Comics. This is actually a rumor that can be traced to Dec. 2019; at the time, radio broadcaster Mike Adam tweeted, “Marvel is allegedly eyeing #Rihanna for a role in the upcoming #BlackPanther sequel!!! @rihanna would play Princess Zanda, the ruler of Narobia, if hired.”

This wouldn’t be Rihanna’s first acting gig (if she is making a cameo in the film, we repeat; singers are also given credits when their songs are played in movies). She played the starring role of Kofi Novia alongside Donald Glover in the 2019 musical film Guava Island, and also held roles in big budget films like 2018’s Ocean 8 and 2017’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Of course, there’s also her iconic role in the 2012 ocean adventure film Battleship, which birthed Rihanna’s “Navy” nickname for her fanbase!
