The actress was in San Diego to promote the upcoming Marvel movie, "Black Panther". Stars are often driven around in cars with tinted windows and whisked around through a series of hidden tunnels to get into the cavernous Hall H, but if they wear a disguise and blend in, that same swarm of people can be used to their advantage if they want to explore the convention a little more freely.
But Oscar victor Lupita Nyong'o (who voices Maz Kanata in the Star Wars universe and plays T'Challa's former lover Nakia in Black Panther) made it happen during the event in San Diego this past weekend, thanks to a Power Rangers costume and a slightly unsettling mask.
The Oscar victor posted videos today on Instagram revealing how she dressed up for the festival (featuring a dance sequence to "i" by Kendrick Lamar). She probably was. Just. go look. We've seen Maisie Williams dress as Spider-Man. She's also set to reprise her role as Maz Kanata in Star Wars: The Last Jedi as well as Episode IX.
Lupita Nyong'o has become the latest celebrity to admit hiding in plain sight at this years Comic Con. Even as she's starring in some of the biggest projects on the planet, Nyong'o remains a fan at heart. It's clear that she has nothing but affection for her fellow Black Panther costars-who include Michael B. Jordan, Chadwick Boseman, Daniel Kaluuya, and Danai Gurira-and loves snapping pics with the cast.
Black Panther comes out February 16, 2018.
The annual Comic-Con in San Diego is all about the fun activities, elaborate cosplay outfits, and an endless stream of panels.
