At the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday, filmmaker Ryan Coogler reflected on the historic sensation of "Black Panther" while also revealing the crisis he went through upon turning 30, previously fearing death was never far behind.

"Oh man! That would be wonderful if the opportunity came up".
The 46-year-old actor stars as Everett K. Ross in the widely acclaimed Marvel movie, which features a predominantly black cast, but Martin doubts the film will spark a significant social change in the US.
For a major scene in "Black Panther", director Ryan Coogler took a page from Steven Spielberg's book - but not one of the legendary director's big-budget adventure films! What do you think of a female-led spin-off movie? That's one of my favorite parts of the movie when I watched it, and I didn't expect that. "That part of it was exciting", Coogler shared. "[These actresses] could easily carry their own movie". I would watch a movie with just them.
The year's most lovable film Black Panther has nearly too many timely messages to count, which is one of the reasons it became the highest-grossing superhero movie, ever, a month after its release.
Black Panther's strong and complex women characters also became instant fan favourites with Lupita Nyongo as Nakia, Lelita Wright as Shuri and Danai Gurira as Okoye.
