It’s common knowledge that Donald Glover and his brother Stephen helped spice up the jokes in Marvel’s Black Panther. Now, thanks to the movie’s DVD release, we finally know which gags got the Glover touch.
Per the DVD’s audio commentary, the brothers worked on the scene that takes place shortly after T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns to Wakanda and takes part in the tradition of accepting challengers for the throne. His sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) then raises her hand, but only to gripe about her corset and how long everything is taking.

According to director Ryan Coogler, this fake-out was penned by Glover. In an interview with Collider, Coogler describes Glover as “one of the funniest people I know.”
