Chadwick Boseman Praises the Strong Women of 'Black Panther'

The whole world is pumped over the highly anticipated Black Panther movie premiere this week with tickets in theaters sold out everywhere. 

Star Chadwick Boseman stopped by Elvis Duran and the Morning show to chat about playing title character King T'Challa, aka Black Panther, and paid a lot of love to his female co-stars and warriors in the film. 

"It's an amazing movie. I always have to lead with the women in this movie because there are so many different versions of beauty of strength in women and those who are played Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong'o, and Danai Gurira. It's an amazing thing to watch it unfold. They're all so savvy in their own way. They find their light in their own way. They're funny in their own way."

He went on to throw it to the Wonder Woman franchise that ignited the strong female superhero conversation. 

Boseman also opened up about the movie's underlying message. He said that after traveling around the world to promote Black Panther, he's learned this movie isn't just about Black and African culture. In South Korea, journalists applied the film's message to their own lives and showed up to interview the cast in traditional Korean outfits. 

"[The message] is so specific that other people are seeing themselves in it and finding a value in their own culture and it's a beautiful, beautiful thing to watch."
