No one I've spoken to personally has even seen it. Doesn't mean it wasn't a popular movie.
Anyway, I'm referring more to all the drama/hype surrounding it (black celebrities buying out movie theaters in the ghetto), with people acting like this movie was some sort of rallying point for sticking it to the ebul racists. In the end, it's just a standard Hollywood production with hugely American themes, featuring African characters/stories instead of white people. In the end, a capitalist studio and executives made bank, people saw another superhero movie, fantasized for a bit, and then went back to life's realities without really learning anything.
There's nothing wrong with any of that, but the way people got so excited for a piece of mindless entertainment was weird. Who knows, maybe we'll get some insightful stories and characters from African backgrounds, but it's not gonna happen in the Hollywood studio of a comic book company.
