With Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan is pumped to join the Marvel universe.

“I’m super excited, especially to put a different spin on it,” the actor tells The Hollywood Reporter at Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. “I’m looking forward to working with Ryan [Coogler] once again. It’s gonna be a good time.”

Until then, Jordan — wearing an Etro shirt and pants — is ready to watch his very first Polo match at the ninth-annual summer event, held Saturday at Liberty State Park. Before heading into the sunny and bubbly garden party with Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Andrew Rannells, Elizabeth Olsen and Jamie-Lynn Sigler, among others, Jordan is game to play along with a rapid fire round of Rambling Reporter's random interrogation.

Last night I … went out to Nobu.

The show I can't wait to binge watch is ... Game of Thrones. Don’t spoil it for me!

The role I most wish I had played is … Ben Affleck’s character in Armageddon.

I can't wait to work with ... Lupita Nyong'o and Chadwick Boseman [in Black Panther.]

If I had to switch careers tomorrow, I would be ... man, that’s a tough one. Marine biologist/dolphin trainer.

The most days I worked in a row is ... I think I was at 22 days.

The best vacation I've ever taken was to ... Dubai.

The last phone call I returned was to ... my mom.

The last time I cried was because ... my grandfather passed away.

My secret crush is … I’m gonna keep that one to myself!

The item in my home or closet that I can't live without is ... a hoodie.

I'm consistently amazed by ... my mom and her strength.

I'm consistently repulsed by ... Donald Trump.

What I love about Hollywood is ... the freedom to be creative.

What I loathe about Hollywood is ... old ways of thinking.

When I'm gone, I hope people will say ... "He left behind a legacy."
