    Love Cadwick, loved black Panther but we need a wall like Wakanda and Joe and Trump should have a fight in the water like Tchalla and Killmonger. Trump 202 if you love America and your children’s future as free people! If you hate America and want to see it broken up into little states and have China dominate the world in a miserable violent , mind stifling, communist world of s**** laboring humans, then vote for Biden/Harris.

      You’re too delusional to realize that everything you explained we’d go through with Biden as President we’re already going through them with Trump as President SMDH

    These white peoples messages be so dry and generic. No soul.

      Because a few words and a heart emoji from some of the black celebs says so much more?

    I am 71 I just lost my son to cancer less than a year … Chadwick was my first and only movie hero . I go to a movie about once in five years .. I stood in line to see Black Panther. Haven’t been back since I was waiting on Black Panther II . Hurts like I know him maybe I do from another time … I believe spirit doesn’t die. He is truly a super hero… Condolences to his family and the world.
