Chadwick Boseman and Ryan Coogler have landed the latest cover of Variety Magazine in which they discuss their movie 'Black Panther' and how it was able to give more opportunities for black actors.
“I think progress comes in ebbs and flows. I hope things continue to open up. As more content gets made, more opportunities like ours can come about for folks. But you’ve got to put your foot on the gas when it comes to that or things can go back to where they were.”
'Black Panther' which hits theaters on February 16th, marks the first time that a major studio has greenlit a black superhero movie with an African-American director and a primarily black cast, which includes Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira and Letitia Wright.
