chadwick boseman is black panther

Black Panther Movie Special: What was your exposure to Marvel prior to working on the films? Chadwick Boseman: I’m a fan. I’d seen the Iron Man movies, the Captain America movies, and The Avengers. I’m not the type of guy that really collects comic books, but I knew all about the Black Panther character from reading them – particularly the Reginald Hudlin strips. What was it about the character that appealed to you? He’s a Super Hero who is also a king. There’s a James Bond feel to the character. He has a large amount of responsibility. There’s a lot of real world conflict that you can bring to the role, so you don’t feel like you’re just playing a guy in a suit. He’s a conflicted, well-rounded character. If you’re gonna play a…

michael b. jordan is erik killmonger

Black Panther Movie Special: How familiar were you with Marvel Comics before taking on your Black Panther role? Michael B Jordan: I was a big Marvel fan, growing up. I read the comics and graphic novels and watched the cartoons as a kid, so I was pretty familiar with the Marvel universe. Were you familiar with the Black Panther character? Very much so. He was a childhood favorite and a character that I always looked up to and admired. Black Panther was actually always a character that I wanted to play one day when I was a kid. What did you like about Black Panther? Being a person of color, being African-American and not having many Super Hero characters that look like me that I can actually relate to – he was the character I…

lupita nyong’o is nakia

Black Panther Movie Special: What appealed to you about working on this movie? Lupita Nyong’o: I had wanted to work with Ryan Coogler, so when I found out he was directing this film I was super excited. Plus, of course, Black Panther was Marvel’s first black Super Hero and now he is going to be on the big screen! Also, the fact that we were going to be creating this really dope African country that everyone would want to be a part of was extremely exciting. What has it been like, working with Ryan Coogler? Ryan is incredible to work with. He throws himself into a project – you can tell by the amount of hair that grows on his face and his head while he’s working! He’s really into it. He used…

letitia wright is shuri

Black Panther Movie Special: What was your initial exposure to the Marvel universe? Letitia Wright: My initial exposure was mainly through the films. As I started to look into the world of Black Panther I realized that it was a huge world in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and there are different characters and different segments that intertwine. What appealed to you about the project? What appealed to me about it was the fact that we’re exploring a Super Hero who is from Africa – so that was the first thing that I immediately knew was going to be be fresh and different. I wanted to be a part of that. What did you like about the script? I liked it a lot because it had a balance of action and real emotions and things that…

angela bassett is ramonda

Black Panther Movie Special: What was your initial exposure to Marvel Comics? Angela Bassett: Not very much. I do have a friend who’s a fan, though – Samuel L. Jackson! Lupita [Nyong’o] is going to pass her comic books on to me, so I’m looking forward to getting myself up to speed. I had heard of Black Panther, but I wasn’t familiar with the comic. So many people are excited about this film – he really is a popular and beloved character. What initially appealed to you about the project? I’m a big fan of Chadwick’s work – the films that he has done. He just goes all in. I appreciate his body of work and his expertise, and Lupita and Michael B. Jordan are wonderful talents. But also there was the opportunity to…

danai gurira is okoye

Black Panther Movie Special: What initially appealed to you about this project? Danai Gurira: I loved the notion of making an African story on this type of scale. I’m from theater. I’m a playwright – I write about African stories and try to tell them in the Western context. So to see African characters put on an epic platform is something that you yearn for. To see this type of story get brought to light, and meeting with Ryan Coogler and hearing his vision – I was just extremely happy that it was happening at all. The fact that I could be a part of it as well was really amazing. Tell us about your character. Okoye is the head of the Dora Milaje. In the comic book, there are so many different…
