[I've been working on Black Panther] since I got [to Marvel].
This movie had a typical Marvel theme in that "good always wins over bad" which is a great message to send, especially to children.

The message is un-ignorable. There have been plenty of gay themed films what included no Black people. Anyone not planning around that reality does so at their own peril.
