Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman Made an Appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah
“Everyone is a hero in their own story, ” said Boseman.
After the worldwide success of Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman took to the stage to share more about the process of creating this movie and its significance. Sitting alongside the host of The Daily Show Trevor Noah, Boseman dives into the importance of representation and the beauty in the film’s team dynamic, while sharing more about what happened behind the scenes.
After Noah praises the diversity in the African accents portrayed in the film, he goes on to say that T’Challa’s accent reminded him of the late Nelson Mandela, easily one of the most notable citizens to come out of South Africa, Noah’s home country.
Boseman responds to say, “Absolutely, [Nelson Mandela’s tone] was the sound of my dialect coach. So, I wanted that sound specifically because I felt like the cliques are an indication” of their age, and furthermore continues to say how the variation in dialects served to reiterate how everything that is loved from Africa, had derived from Wakanda.
And that was only one bit. Talking about the responses from the motherland, the fears behind the accents, and the tensions on and off screens, the two deeply analyze the film and its impact.
Meanwhile, the film continues to be released worldwide and proceeds to become one of the highest grossing films we have seen in some time. Currently the biggest movie in the marketplace, Black Panther has recently surpassed the $1 billion mark worldwide.
