Black Panther director thanks fans for supporting sequel’s ’emotional journey’

In a fan letter released online on Wednesday, Coogler described Boseman as “a giant in our industry.”

“Gratitude. That’s the only word that comes to mind for your support of our work on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. I’m overwhelmed with it,” he wrote.

“Thank you. Thank you to those who bought early tickets and camped out for the opening weekend. Thank you to those of you who brought their families along – the young and the elderly.

He went on to thank fans for “organizing bathroom breaks” throughout the more than two-and-a-half hour series.
