A Black Panther scene unleashed by Marvel on Monday shows a fight scene between two badass black women. It is epic, iconic, and everything an action movie scene should be. There’s amazing fight choreography, guns, a spear—and wig throwing.

Yes, a wig literally gets snatched and thrown in the clip. People on Twitter are loving it.



In the scene, Danai Gurira’s Okoye—leader of Dora Milaje (the women-only secret service run by Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa)—pulls off the incredible distraction stunt in the midst of a spear fight, taking on multiple armed men. And boy, does it work.

Nakia, played by Lupita Nyong’o, also casually takes off her high-heeled shoe and uses it to inflict the most femme-inspired blow upon her foe ever delivered in an action scene.

The Black Panther movie will be celebrated for being the first in many ways. Now, first “wig and heel used as weapon” in an action scene should definitely be added to that list.
