Chadwick Boseman: 'Black Panther' won't have been nuanced with white director

Directed by Dave Meyers and The Little Homies (the team of Dave Free and Lamar himself), "All The Stars" features an all-black cast in a biblical-looking landscape, full of bright colors and literal black panthers - all in line with the Afrofuturist aesthetics of the film's fictional setting of Wakanda. It could be, yes.

"Would they have his perspective, like the perspective [Coogler] brought to the movie?" Probably not. It wouldn't be nuanced in the same way because they don't have the same conflict.

The actor also shared that the Black Panther suit made going to the bathroom a lot of hassle because he would have to get it off then put it back on. In order to do this, you have to find ways to make those connections, especially because the character is coming from that place. "And hats off to Sounwave, who's producing, and Ludwig [Göransson], who was able to manipulate the score to incorporate some of those songs and weave them in and out of the orchestral stuff that he was already doing". Would a white director understand that? In response, Boseman shared that the nuances of American, African-American, and African experience are an important part of the movie. "So there was a moment - 'Can I grab Kraven?' - and they were 'Nah, you don't have Kraven.' He was one where I thought 'Oh, man.' But I don't even know if he would have worked in the movie we ended up with, this was the early days".

Ahead of the film's release next week, Hot Toys has released a batch of promotional images for its 1/6th scale Movie Masterpiece Series Black Panther collectible figure which is based on the likeness of Chadwick Boseman as the Wakandan King in the upcoming Marvel superhero solo movie; check it out here...
