Black Panther: Terry Gilliam Confesses That He Detested Ryan Coogler’s Film


Even during the Christmas holidays, the controversy over Marvel films goes on vacation. In addition to the statements of Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola on the MCU films, those of Terry Gilliam have been added. The director and member of Monty Python lashed out against the franchise in general and against a film specifically.

“If you are so powerful you should have a little more to do with reality,” Gilliam told IndieWire. “What I don’t like is that we all have to be superheroes doing something useful. That’s what drives me crazy. This is what these films are saying to young people. And for me, they don’t compare to the reality of the non-privileged human condition. It’s like being a normal human being in difficult situations and solving them by surviving. I don’t criticize them for the show itself. but because it’s repetitive. You still have to blow up another city

Then in the attack of Terry Gilliam ends a film in particular: Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, called a ‘bullshit’ for giving young fans a false sense of conviction: “I hated Black Panther. It drives me crazy. It gives young black guys the idea that this is something to believe in. Bullshit, it’s total bullshit

Terry Gilliam doubts that the people who dealt with the film, primarily director Ryan Coogler, ever bothered to go to Africa to prepare for the film: “I think the people who did it were never in Africa. They went to get some stylists for some fabrics and things with African motifs. But I hated that film, in part because the media was insisting on the importance of bullshit

In the end, Black Panther grossed over $ 1.3 billion worldwide and was one of the most critically acclaimed Marvel films, with a rating of almost 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. Black Panther made Bob Iger proud.

Some time ago Chadwick Boseman had been tried for Guardians of the Galaxy.
