As an artist, you never truly know how the public will react to the work you put out. It doesn’t matter if you’re a musician, a painter, an actor, or a film maker, there’s always that voice in the back of your head asking you, “How will people like this?”
All you can do is put in the work, stay true to yourself, and hope for the best. Most times, it works out exactly how it should. The reception that Black Panther has received has been mostly positive, with many people calling it the best Marvel film to date, but that hasn’t gone to director Ryan Coogler’s head one bit.
He wrote a letter to everyone, posted on Twitter by Marvel Studios, to express his feelings at the reception of his film.
