BLACK PANTHER Director Explains Why Donald and Stephen Glover Got a 'Thank You' in the Credits
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is only days away from dominating the box office when it hits in theaters February 16th. In a recent interview with collider.com, director Ryan Coogler responded to a question regarding why both Donald and Stephen Glover were thanked during the end credits of the movie. Coogler revealed that he sent the Black Panther script to the Atlanta creator and Solo: A Star Wars Story actor, who provided some input with his brother Stephen.
"Donald and Stephen actually gave me notes on a draft. They came and took a day- they were really busy, they took a day and they read the draft and gave us notes."
"It wasn't that kind of a thing where it was 'change this, change that.' We were looking at ways to highlight a few more character things with specifically Shuri where she pokes fun at her brother. Donald's one of the funniest people that I know, so he had some interesting ideas. And Stephen's crazy talented as well."
Coogler wanted to show his appreciation for the Glovers contributions, so he threw them a special mention during the "Thank You" portion of the credits.
You'll get to see Black Panther when it finally premieres in theaters on February 16th.
