"I'm not a Marvel type of guy. I'll never be like, 'Oh let's go see the new Superman movie,' but Black Panther, that's going to be good. When is there ever going to be another black superhero movie? I've never seen that before."
"Rarely do we see black people being represented in any kind of comic book, any kind of cartoon, or any big blockbuster movies. When I saw the trailer for [Black Panther], I definitely was gonna be hype for it. I'm gonna wear a dashiki, like a full-blown 'Coming to America' outfit."
"Some people feel only black people should see the movie, or [that] it's like a black thing. I don't think that. I think it's going to be different."
"I think [Black Panther] is trying to say that superheroes can be black too. Superheroes...don't have to necessarily follow the traditional idea of what a superhero looks like."
"When I think of this movie, I think of Black Excellence. That's just what they are trying to do: Black Excellence. Like we're not trying to explain it. We're not trying to tell you ought to be this way. It's just, this is Black Excellence."
