The star of Marvel's first film to center on a black superhero shares why Phylicia Rashad and Denzel Washington are responsible for his shift from writer/director to actor, how he weighed the honor of playing black icons against the fear of being typecast and what he makes of Wakanda's cultural significance during the Trump era and the Academy's new popular Oscar.

But first: Stephen Galloway, THR's executive editor of features, joins Scott to preview the Venice and Telluride film festivals that will kick off the awards season later this week.

Credits: Hosted by Scott Feinberg, recorded and produced by Matthew Whitehurst.
