I Was Told Not To Give Black Panther An African Accent – Actor Chadwick Boseman

The recently released Marvel Movie, Black Panther has received wide recognition around the world especially from africa.

The movie is the 18th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) , and most importantly, Black Panther is the first black superhero to get his own standalone movie.

Chadwick Boseman, the lead actor was speaking at a Beverly Hills news conference along with director Ryan Coogler, co-stars Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira and the rest of the cast the morning after Monday’s glittering Hollywood premiere.

According to him, doubters had tried to convince him not to give the superhero an African accent, and he was happy to prove them wrong.

“There was a time period where people would ask me questions about whether or not an audience could sit through a movie with a lead character that spoke with that accent,” Boseman said of the east African inflection he gives the superhero. 

“I became adamant about the fact that it’s not true,” 

“The intonations and melodies inside an African accent are just as classical as a British one or a European one.”

If not an african Accent, what other accent will he have used, a japanese accent? Lol, Just asking.
