The actor also said it was the first time that the Marvel movie's director, Ryan Coogler, had directed two white actors - himself and Martin Freeman - and it showed just how long black actors have been "the minority" in film.

Local spending included almost $30m on general production supplies, $5.6m on accommodation and $3.9m on transport, according to figures from the Motion Picture Association of America. But Jordan, normally cast as a good guy underdog for prior roles, has admitted that he did have to stretch-and dig deep-when it came to bringing the dark and conflicted character of Killmonger credibly to life for the film.

The new film marks the first time in six years that Serkis and Martin Freeman have worked together: In The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Serkis reprised his Lord of the Rings role as the wretched Gollum alongside Freeman's traveling hobbit Bilbo Baggins, and in Black Panther, Klaue runs into Central Intelligence Agency agent Everett Ross (Freeman).

Black Panther is a hero.

Atlanta's Fox Theatre was packed with an eager audience Wednesday night for the premiere screening of "Black Panther". Killmonger goes head-to-head with T'Challa in a way that makes it hard to pigeonhole him as a typical "villain".

"A superhero movie whose characters have integrity and dramatic heft, filled with engaging exploits and credible crises all grounded in a vibrant but convincing reality, laced with socially conscious commentary as well as wicked laughs that don't depend on snark, this is the model of what an involving popular entertainment should be". She was a breathe of fresh air in every scene that she was in.
