In an interview with Comic Book Resources, last week, Chadwick Boseman gave his first thoughts on being named Prince T’Challa of Wakanda, a.k.a., the Avenger known as The Black Panther.

Like the rest of the world, he can’t wait to get started on the film, saying, “I’m so excited! I’m ready to start right now, and they’re telling me, ‘Slow down a little bit!’”

He went on to talk about the significance of being Marvel’s first film starring a black superhero:

“It’s never been done […] It’s been done before in different ways, but it’s never been done exactly like this. Wesley Snipes also had his own franchise — you have to acknowledge that. You have to acknowledge what [Anthony] Mackie’s doing [with the Falcon]. But this is a little different in the way that Marvel is presenting it, so it’s amazing.”
