Director Ryan Coogler poses for photographers during a photo call at the 71st global film festival, Cannes, southern France, Thursday, May 10, 2018.
The actor, who played Central Intelligence Agency agent Everett Ross in the Ryan Coogler-directed film, said when nothing changed in the United States of America, even after the presidency of Barack Obama, how can a film influence people's mindset. "They did it in the comic-book version", he replied, according to Variety.
Ryan Coogler's sensational, record-breaking Marvel movie Black Panther continues to be hailed as one of the studio's best recent movies, even in the wake of the also acclaimed Avengers: Infinity War. "That part of it was exciting", Coogler shared.
Coogler also went on to say that Black Panther was originally pitched to him as a James Bond-type story, which he was more than thrilled to be a part of. "These actresses could easily carry their own movie", he said. "I think you could argue they are more important", he said.
We compiled those nuggets and many more into this handy list, but all of Black Panther's special features are definitely worth watching for yourself.
Critics especially praised its strong women characters such as Nakia (Lupita Nyongo), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and Shuri (Letitia Wright). "I would watch a movie with them!"
