Samuel L. Jackson still doubts Black Panther’s impact in Hollywood

Samuel L. Jackson doubts the success of ‘Black Panther’ will lead to long-term changes in Hollywood.

The acclaimed Marvel movie has led to calls for more films to be led by black actors and actresses, but Jackson doesn’t think it will ultimately have the impact some fans have suggested.

Speaking to Matt Pomroy, Jackson explained: “I’m not positive that ‘Black Panther’ is going to change the dynamic of black stories being told in Hollywood and being accepted all over the world. It’s an action-adventure story and a lot of people like those, and they’ll work all over the world forever because everybody loves a hero.

“But not everybody loves a drama about somebody’s life experience – that’s why awards have a separate category for foreign films; they are perceived as being different. Once we stop perceiving them as different and just see them as good films and they get recognized in the same category, we’ll be laying markers.”

Meanwhile, ‘Black Panther’ star Daniel Kaluuya recently admitted he feels insecure about his acting abilities.

The 29-year-old actor – who is widely recognized as one of the rising stars of the business – admitted that because he never attended drama school, he still harbors insecurities. He explained: “I couldn’t afford to go to drama school and because I’m not trained, I have a deep insecurity about my ability. So I just feel like I should always learn.”
