The subject of race is still on and in the world of film, especially in the united States, where it has had an impact since the start of the history of this art and that is still in force today.

The following year, he wanted to compensate the error, and until a superhero movie such as “Black Panther” was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best film, garnering three statuettes. Starring Chadwig, it was praised by many as the first tape of a súperheroe black, forgetting previous productions like the trilogy of “Blade”, starring Wesley Snipes, “Spawn”, Michael Jai White, or “Hancock” with Will Smith.
