Sandra Bulluck celebrates the release of Black Panther for providing a role model for her children.
At Sunday’s 90th Academy Awards, Bullock told Access Hollywood what it was like meeting the cast of ‘Black Panther.’ The actress is a mother to two black children, Louis and Laila, and the film resonated with her as a parent.
“I’m so grateful to Marvel because about five years ago, my son asked me if there were any brown Legos. And I said, ‘Yes, there are,’ and I got a Sharpie and I turned Spider-Man brown, I turned the Legos brown, and I don’t have to turn them brown anymore.”
Black Panther has revolutionized cinema for black audiences while breaking box office records since its release.
