The actor has expressed his excitement for starring in Marvel’s first black superhero movie but has said he’s making sure to keep his expectations in check.

“I hesitate to jump on that ‘Oh, it’s a movement’ thing. Because it depends on how it opens,” he previously told Mr. Porter. “I mean, it’s got to happen first, right? People need to show up and not bootleg it.”

Black Panther also stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and more.
