The actor also said it was the first time that the Marvel movie's director, Ryan Coogler, had directed two white actors - himself and Martin Freeman - and it showed just how long black actors have been "the minority" in film. And according to Variety, a strong box office showing for Black Panther, which cost almost $200 million to produce, would send a clear message to Hollywood that there's tremendous opportunity to be found in making more movies targeting diverse audiences and featuring Black casts.

"I am honored to be working with such an incredible artist whose work has been so inspirational, and whose artistic themes align with those we explore in the film", Coogler said regarding working with Lamar, also in an interview with Variety.

It's not apparent whether Black Panther takes his martinis shaken or stirred, since soon an all-out brawl breaks out, but Boseman enjoys "how he adapts to different situations, the espionage of it", he says.

"Tell them who you are" is the encouragement shouted at the title character, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) prince of the African nation Wakanda.

Business Insider said that "Black Panther" arrived at a ideal time. "My character comes from a place called Wakanda".

Black Panther is released in United Kingdom cinemas on Tuesday 13th February 2018. The story is one that stands on its own with a clear beginning, middle, and end.

What makes "Black Panther" so explosive is that the story takes a look at "Black self-hatred" and the crimes we commit against each other. But the character has sparked the imaginations of many since, including the filmmaker Reginald Hudlin, the author Ta-Nehisi Coates and Wesley Snipes, who labored for years to adapt the comic into a movie. Let us know what you think down in the comments section below! The film is still an entertaining tale about a super hero.

The women in the movie are so incredibly interesting and three-dimensional. Vibranium makes up the suit that T'Challa dons as Black Panther, and its power is much guarded. Chadwick Boseman plays T'challa with an air of royalty that doesn't require a lot of hooping and hollering. "Black Panther" stands for everything that's been missing from Marvel's - and Hollywood's - universe. Killmonger has issues about how Wakanda has been run and how it should be ruled.
