‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’: Director Ryan Coogler pens emotional note to thank fans

Hollywood director Ryan Coogler, on Thursday, penned a thank you note for all the people who reached theatres to watch ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ and showed their support for the movie. In a long note shared by production house Marvel Studios on their official Instagram handle, Coogler said that seeing the love the movie is receiving, he is filled with gratitude.

“Gratitude. That is the only word that comes to my mind for your support of our work on the film Black Panther Wakanda Forever. I am filled with it,” Ryan wrote.

To thank all the fans who watched the movie, he wrote, “Thank you. Thank you to the people bought their tickets early and camped out opening weekend. Thank you to those of you who took their families and young ones and elders in tow. To those who organised youth screenings and afterparties, who bought theatres for communities and friends. To all of you, who watched multiple times and encouraged other folks to check it out.”

Remembering actor Chadwick Boseman, Coogler added, “We made something to honour our friend, who was a giant in our industry, and we also made something to be enjoyed in a theatrical sitting with friends, family and strangers.” Take a look!

‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ released in theatres on November 11 and gathered massive responses from audiences around the globe. In less than two weeks, it crossed the $500 million mark at the global box office and emerged as a blockbuster.

Helmed by Coogler, the film starred Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Tenoch Huerta, Martin Freeman, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Angela Bassett in pivotal roles. The movie marks the sequel to Coogler’s own 2018 blockbuster ‘Black Panther’, which grossed $700 million domestically and made about $1.3 billion worldwide.
