Black Panther's Danai Gurira explains why the Marvel movie is 'getting it right'
Black Panther is the latest superhero film from the Marvel comic book universe. The film tells the story of T'Challa, a.k.a., Black Panther, king and protector of the technologically-advanced African kingdom of Wakanda. It's the first big budget superhero film to feature a predominantly black cast and director, and it's already breaking early box office records. It's also garnering praise for exploring social issues never before covered in the genre.
Danai Gurira is a star in the new film. She's best known for playing the sword-wielding Michonne on AMC's zombie-apocalypse series The Walking Dead, and has also gained acclaim as a Tony-award winning playwright. Gurira joins Tom Power to talk about the hype around Black Panther and why the movie's value is more important than any records it might break at the box office.
