Actor Chadwick Boseman believes "interesting" characters and strong storytelling are reason for Marvel Cinematic Universe's success. The actor, who will be seen in Marvel's "Black Panther", portraying the titular character, recently talked about what drew him to the film. "Well one, I mean they have a good batting average in terms of successful films and films that people love. And to be specific about this film and this character, it's just a good character. It's an interesting character. Because if it was somehow not as good as it is, I wouldn't want to do it," Boseman told Collider.
"Just because it's Marvel, it doesn't mean you want to do it. They tend to be offering people stuff that's interesting and good and wanting to push envelopes in certain places," he added.
