There has been some controversy surrounding the Black Panther’s Rotten Tomatoes score. Certain groups planned to organize to tank the film’s audience score. Director Ryan Coogler just hopes he made a film that almost anyone can enjoy.

"For me, I'm looking forward to everybody seeing the film," Coogler said. "I'm really looking forward to sharing the film with audiences regardless of what their political views are...that's kind of where I [stand on that].

"It can be an oversimplification of what critics are saying about a movie," Coogler said of the Rotten Tomatoes score. "It's quicker to look at the consensus than it is to read the articles. But I'm a person who definitely respects film criticism and draws on it in the filmmaking process."
