Black Panther’s superhero Chadwick Boseman just baited us into the ultimate thirst trap with his new cover spread for Rolling Stone. He has always been one of our #MCM faves, but it seems like he and every other brother from Wakanda have all catapulted themselves to beyond #bae status.
Inside (yes, we actually read the article), he talks about being in the first superhero movie with a predominantly Black cast and crew, including a Black lead stylist, Black costume and production designers, Black director, Black writers and a Black executive producer.
“It’s a sea-change moment,” he said. “I still remember the excitement people had seeing Malcolm X. And this is greater, because it includes other people, too. Everybody comes to see the Marvel movie,” he said.

In the new feature, the 'Black Panther' star discusses the making of the film, Hollywood's double standard when it comes to identifying young black talent and more. "Some [black] actors will say, 'I don't want to play a character just because he's black,'" he tells us. "And that's great, I'm not saying they're wrong. But that's missing all the richness that's been whitewashed." Photograph by Norman Jean Roy
