“The intonations and melodies inside an African accent are just as classical as a British one or a European one.”

Boseman was speaking at a Beverly Hills news conference after Monday’s successful premiere of the movie.

The movie is the actor’s and first black superhero standalone movie. It came to him after a decade of featuring in indie films and obscure television.

2014 was his breakthrough year when he was cast in the role of T’Challa, the black panther and king of Wakanda for a lucrative five-picture deal.

He first appeared in “Captain America: Civil War” (2016).

“Black Panther” opens on February 16.
