I am not expecting social change after ‘Black Panther’ success: Martin Freeman

Vastavam web: Actor Martin Freeman believes that the expectations of social change after the success of “Black Panther”, which was the first superhero film to be primarily led by an all-black cast, are overblown.The actor, who played CIA agent Everett Ross in the Ryan Coogler-directed film, said when nothing changed in the United States of America, even after the presidency of Barack Obama, how can a film influence people’s mindset.

‘People have felt a need for it, and people don’t always feel a social need to go and see a film. Certain members of certain communities feel that, ‘Yes, this is my film.’ I’m not making any claims that now America will change – of course it won’t. If America didn’t change under (Barack) Obama, then…” Freeman, 46, told The Guardian.
