'Utter Bulls*t': Acclaimed Filmmaker Slams Black Panther

It's clear veteran filmmaker Terry Gilliam didn't understand how important "Black Panther" was for the culture because he had some harsh words for the Marvel superhero flick. In an interview with IndieWire the British writer and director, who's behind such decorated movies like "Monty Python", "12 Monkeys" and "The Fisher King", called the Marvel movie “utter bullsh*t.”

“I hated ‘Black Panther.’ It makes me crazy. It gives young black kids the idea that this is something to believe in. Bulls—. It’s utter bulls—,” he said. “I think the people who made it have never been to Africa. They went and got some stylist for some African pattern fabrics and things. But I just I hated that movie, partly because the media were going on about the importance of bulls—.”

Last week Marvel Studios announced the release date of May 6, 2022 for the Black Panther sequel.
