Speaking to a viewer who watched the movie he said; “No matter how much the world tries to strip the movie of its political coloration and treat it as just another Marvelsuperhero fest, it is what it is; and director, Ryan Coogler, does not shy away from making Black Panther the blackest black movie he could make.”
Actor Timini Egbuson said; “I have been looking forward to this movie. A black super hero movie, with black cast and directors, I’m really excited that I get to be among the first people to see this movie in Nigeria. It was totally worth the wait.”
