  • He drives stick shift 😫

  • I've had an absolutely bananas crush on him since I watched the wire in seventh grade, and I'm glad he's finally getting his due recognition

  • when he said he sat with tiffany at the met gala all i could think of was charlemagne saying that she was growing her pubic hair till mbj slept with her

  • Gawd his beautiful and I love listening to him.. his so intelligent

  • What brand sweater is that??

  • Micheal is a good interview...Keep it coming.Mr.Fineman....

  • This guy should be the villain who put an end in Fast and Furious

  • He musst be famos , but I don ´t know this man. I have never seen him before.

  • Did he drink out of the wrong cup?

  • 🤮😴

  • Why is he so so fine and hes not shy to be intelligent and nerdy i love him 😍 😍 like if you agree!!!!!

  • I love Henry Cavill as Superman! Will never support MBJ, he is a fraud.

  • You are a hard Working Actor. Love Sweater Sexy Micheal B.Jordan Love his Smile I wish I him in Person. I wonder if have The Black Panther C.D..s.

  • I don’t care what other characters he plays, he’s always gonna be Vince Howard for me

  • Man this dude is big

  • Tbh I’d love to see Michael work with guys like Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and many top actors, I like how he busts his ass off in the movie industry that I feel like he deserves to work with the best of the best this is why I consider him my most favorite actor real talk.

  • Good black Man

  • Oh my goodness. He's so handsome

  • I never wanted to be a couch so bad🤧

  • Now I really want to know more about Killmonger’s past according to Michael’s journal 🤔

  • He is so good looking!

  • Black Panther spoilers ahead...... Would be cool if he wasn’t actually dead, he did have the heart shaped herb coursing through his system. Maybe T’Challa is saving him

  • Gotta stop missing those leg days.

  • Zaddy

  • Adore him! I can't wait for CREED 2! It's going to be SO good! Keep up the amazing work Michael :-)

  • His voice is fantastic, I wish he would release some of those journals.

  • What a cool guy. Like him a lot.

  • He has such cute doe-eyes...

  • He seems like a family member that you can chill yet learn from.👊 but he is a movie star.

  • That smile when he said Fantastic Four lmao

  • I am so in love...

  • He said in another interview that he learned a lot with the movie City Of God (cidade de Deus) to 'build' killmonger. It's a must watch. Great movie

  • Alright ladies (and some men) who would you rather have clap your cheeks: Michael B Jordan or Chadwick Bozeman?

    • DemonQueen_ Of_Fandoms i REFUSE to answer this ... I WANT BOTH

  • It's just a matter of time before he wins an Oscar. I was sold after his performance in Creed

  • So many people in these comments that clearly have low standards. Killmonger was the best part of Black Panther? Black Panther was an amazing movie? Jordan really deserves praise for his portrayal????? Really? The movie was a disappointment with laughable CGI and an uncompelling and utterly predictable plot. As for Killmonger? Jordan was two-dimensional and cartoonish in his "I need to take an angry poop" shouty mcshoutface routine once he arrived in Wakanda. The film was mostly boring, the car chase had outdated, juvenile sight gags, the dialogue was often culturally placating african nonsense that played the average audience like a chump.... And the only laughs in this sci-fi Roots/Do The Right Thing/Captain America wannabe... Were from Shuri. Black Panther was two words: Complete disappointment

  • That diary should have said, at the top of every page, "don't over play the role of the badguy, or you will look like you can't act. Black Panther.... What a disappointment. Too little Andy Serkis, not enough Shuri, and those CGI effects... Right up there with Wolverine: Origins in the PATHETIC department.

  • They need to make a movie from this diary!

  • I didn't like his name seriously and the Iraq and Afghanistan thing in the movie, but I did play him the starring of the black panther in a heartbeat. Better looks and puffed than the other dude.

  • What is this, a husband?

  • Killmonger was the hero not the villain.

  • Those teeth though 😍 #GoodTeethRMyAchillesHill😂



  • Good old Ave p in Newark I miss that

  • I love the celebrities in the interviews but Stephen is so painful to watch. He’s worse than Fallon.

  • "𝓌𝒽𝑒𝓃 𝐼 𝓉𝑒𝓁𝓁 𝓎𝑜𝓊 𝓉𝑜 𝒹𝑜 𝓈𝑜𝓂𝑒𝓉𝒽𝒾𝓃𝑔.. 𝓘 𝓶𝓮𝓪𝓷 𝓽𝓱𝓪𝓽 𝓼𝓱𝓲𝓽 " = 👉🏽 #lowkey American arrogance on display

  • Pink Slips?! Someone explain please.

  • He's just so authentic and confident

  • Good grief he's so cool

  • I like how he started laughing when Steve mentioned Fant4stic
