The video now has over 9 million views.

On The View, Boseman said, “That’s why you do this. That’s the reason why you, for me, it’s one of the reasons why I get up in the morning and I do what I do. There’s actually a couple of kids that I’ve connected with while I’m shooting Black Panther and would literally, when I was tired, I would just think of them.”

Boseman went on to stress the importance of representation in the first superhero movie to feature a predominantly black cast with a black director.
