“It was an incredible presence from an incredibly tense, urgent, and absolutely focused young man. He knew more, more than we do, that this was a moment, and it was the moment of Africa. He felt pretty serious about Ryan Coogler. They always said, Guys, we have a chance to make a totally black Hollywood movie funded by Marvel and turn it into the biggest hit possible. Because this opportunity may not be presented again. He was that kind of actor. “
