Michael B. Jordan’s unforgettable performance as the character Killmonger in Marvel’s historic, box office smash movie Black Panther apparently required a lot of time and patience on the rising actor's part in preparing to take the screen and show his talents each day of the shoot.  

To prepare for the role, Jordan had to be covered with 3,000 prosthetic dots made from a glue-like material. The dots were used as the scars on Killmonger that represented each person he’s killed. Joel Harlow has extensive experience with doing makeup for movies and he nailed Killmonger's enhancements.
