Black Panther's Chadwick Boseman has the right take on being a star of what has confusingly become a controversial film. Black Panther is the 18th Marvel superhero movie and the first and only currently planned film out of all them that has a lead who is black lead, so of course parts of the internet is hating on it. And not just hating on it but actively trying to undermine how the movie does at the box office and in ratings.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Boseman said, "I don't really read the reviews... but I would rather they be good, than bad, that's for sure." He went on later in the interview clip when asked about the troll campaign against the film, "I heard about it, so I definitely thought about it and you don't really know how big of an impact that's going to be... so whatever they do online doesn't really matter."
Boseman's co-stars Letitia Wright and Daniel Kaluuya made the very apt point that all they cared about was making sure that it got to the audience that it was intended for.
