You can't go to a movie born from a comic book and expect Moonlight with explosions.

Reader Cicily Killian responds to Nothing makes me feel less connected to people than a comic book movie like Black Panther:

What did you think you were getting from Marvel? Mooonlight with explosions?

This is so reaching and tone deaf. Superhero movies are shallow. But they’re big, and it’s nice to go and see one with all people who look like you for once.

This movie also shuts down the biggest reason we don’t see more people of color, big budget films --money. No one can say that people won’t see movies with a cast that looks like this one.
