The king is coming! If he can get through the studio doors.

"Black Panther" stars Chadwick Boseman is hosting "Saturday Night Live" April 7, with Cardi B as musical guest. We can probably expect another Wakanda sketch or two, or maybe one promoting "Avengers: Infinity War," which opens April 27.

It's clear SNL plans to take King T'Challa very seriously; the first promo shows cast members Kate McKinnon, Alex Moffat, and Kenan Thompson trying to trick Boseman into giving them vibranium to open the locked studio doors.

As Boseman tries to explain, "Vibranium ain't real," then -- with more irritation -- "We made it up for the movie!" Kenan is apparently "the key-keeper" of SNL, but he didn't have the right studio keys. So they canceled the show and Boseman said he was going back to L.A.
They probably figured out a way in eventually, so don't worry. Keep checking SNL's YouTube for more promos before the April 7 show.

SNL airs Saturdays at 11:29 p.m. on NBC.
