“Black Panther” stars Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyongo’o have a fun bet going on involving push ups and the world is actually intrigued. Apparently, Jordan lost a bet with Nyong’o and he now has to perform push ups on her command whenever she wants.

During a Live Twitter Q&A with the “Black Panther” cast, the moderator asked Jordan a question when Nyong’o interrupted, “And can I just add to that? Give me one, please.”

“She’s cold-blooded!” said Jordan after he dropped down onto stage in front of the audience and performed a push up.

Then during New York Fashion Week, Lupita caught Jordan again at a Calvin Klein fashion show and proclaimed on Instagram “3 more to go…”

But wait, that is not all. Nyong’o found Jordan backstage on “The View” and went on offense. “I definitely have time to talk to you,” she said, “and I would especially like to see you get down.”

No word yet on what the original bet was about.

Meanwhile, “Black Panther” now officially has the second biggest four-day opening in box office history, making $40.1 million on President’s Day Monday to bring its domestic launch to $242million. That’s just a step higher than the $241.5 million made by “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” this past December, and second only to the $288 million made by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in 2015.
