Since opening its borders to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the kingdom of Wakanda has yet to host an Olympics or a Starbucks… much to Okoye’s chagrin. On the other hand, the Dora Milaje supersoldier will probably be thrilled to know that her homeland has been Lego-fied. On May 11, Marvel is dropping a series of Lego-themed shorts, Lego Marvel Super Heroes–Black Panther: Trouble in Wakanda, which feature King T’Challa and his fellow Wakandan heroes fighting bad guys ranging from Killmonger to Thanos. Yahoo Entertainment has your exclusive first look at these re-brickulous cartoons, which will also air as part of an hourlong special on June 3 at 11 a.m. on Disney XD. (Watch the clip above.)
Unlike in Avengers: Infinity War, where Thanos brings the fight to Wakanda, the Lego version of T’Challa heads to Manhattan to battle the Mad Titan. Luckily, he still has a Hulk, as the Lego version of the big green bruiser isn’t as scared to swap places with Bruce Banner as his live-action counterpart proved to be. Captain America, Black Widow, and Dr. Strange also pop up in Trouble in Wakanda, with Cap once again sporting his star-spangled vibranium shield. But it’s Killmonger’s reappearance that will probably generate the most fan excitement… even without the presence of Michael B. Jordan and his formidable, dental-brace snapping abs.
Trouble in Wakanda debuts May 11 on Marvel HQ.
