Stars Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan and director Ryan Coogler were in Seoul to promote the much awaited first superhero movie of 2018: Black Panther.
The stars of Black Panther kicked off the movie’s international tour this week in South Korea, where key action scenes were shot, and spoke at length on Marvel’s most diverse franchise.
“My own personal culture and heritage is something I’ve always appreciated since I was very young and I’ve always loved superhero comic books and movies. So it’s a blessing to be able to merge these two ideas into one project. It was really surreal to be a part of this process,” director Ryan Coogler told media present at the press conference.
Chadwick Boseman, who plays the lead role of the dashing and intelligent superhero as well as T’Challa, the young ruler of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, also expressed his excitement of being part of the franchise and described the film as a “revolutionary” superhero film.
