If you didn’t spot Trevor Noah in Black Panther, you’re not alone. Noah’s contribution to Black Panther was limited to lending his voice to an AI technology called Griot. This occurred in a sequence in which Martin Freeman played CIA Agent Everett Ross, who was flying a virtual fighter jet in Wakanda.

The host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah had only a few lines to read in the sequence, but he was listed as a cast member in the credits. The actor spoke about his role,

“I don’t like to brag about this, but I was in Black Panther, the smash hit. Ryan Coogler approached me and asked me, would you like to be the star of this movie, and I said, ‘no, I’ve got The Daily Show.'”

The Coming 2 Africa actor was able to discuss his cameo in the film a few months after its release in 2018 when he appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. When asked about it, the South African comedian joked that Ryan Coogler had sought him first for more prominent roles.

Noah stunned many people, including some members of the Daily Show‘s crew, when he declared on September 29 that his seventh year presenting The Daily Show would be his final. Noah has stated a desire to resume a stand-up comedy tour. Noah’s final broadcast will be on December 8.

Fans are speculating about his return as the AI Griot and are demanding Dua Lipa’s cameo in the film as well. This would make sense as Dua Lipa and Trevor Noah sparked dating speculations after they were spotted kissing and hugging on a cozy date night out in New York City a few weeks ago. The British singer’s cameo as another AI would just be perfect for the duo.

The film will conclude Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will be released in theatres worldwide on November 11, 2022.
