Bob Iger, the former CEO of Disney, said that there would have been no Balck Panther if the company just relied on the data.
In an interview with New York Times, Bob Iger said that the company would not have made Black Panther 2018 if the company solely depended upon the Data. However, Iger was asked about Bob Chapek, the CEO of Disney, so he answered that now the company is dependent upon the data.
Moreover, Iger was the CEO of Disney from 2005 until 2020, and now he has been removed from his designation.
However, Iger replied that now the company is solely Data-Driven. Moreover, he referred to a warning that he has made in October about depending only on data when you do creative projects.
He explained that If we had tried solely on the Data, we had at that time to determine whether we should make a superhero movie based on an Afrifuturistic world. Moreover, he also added that the data would have said that Don’t Do that, and Black Panther would not have been made.
However, in the movie, Black Panther T’Challa/Black Panther plays a leading role, and the audience is introduced to a fictional African Nation of Wakanda.
The Challa/Black Panther is following his father’s death and is forced to contend with his cousin N’Jadaka/Erik Stevens/Killmonger. Throughout the story, T’Challa is challenged to pursue a new kinship style.
The film was a success at the box office as it has made $1.34 billion, and the film’s total budget was $200 million. It was also the highest-rated Marvel Cinematic Universe film, so the show achieved high Success, and Iger argued that it was due to our ambition not to rely solely on the data.
After Black Panther 2018, it was reported that the sequel is on the way to our screens, namely Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. But the sequel’s production is delayed due to the death of Boseman, Corona pedantic, and also due to the injuries of Shuri actor Letitia Wright.
However, Black Panther is directed by Ryan Coogler from his script and is now available to stream on Dusney+. It is also available at home media. So if you have not watched it yet, visit and have fun.
