    Kinda racist that a Black person has to play Black panther. Even as a Black person I would be pissed. It's like saying "We have a math Genius in the movie. Hmm, let's hire an Asian for that one".

    The difference between good artist and artist not that good is whether they make the artwork come to life.
    Good job!
