Black Panther director Ryan Coogler's emotional note to fans "never imagined"


Ryan Coogler says he "never imagined" Black Panther would be so popular.
The director has written a message thanking fans, many who have dressed up and even hired out cinemas to watch the superhero film.
"Never in a million years did we imagine that you all would come out this strong," he said.
The film has taken $426.6 million (around £305 million) worldwide in a week, and broken US box office records.
"It still humbles me to think that people care enough to spend their money and time watching our film," the 31-year-old said in the note, shared by Marvel Studios.
"But to see people of all backgrounds wearing clothing that celebrates their heritage, taking pictures next to our posters with their friends and family, and sometimes dancing in the lobbies of theaters [sic] - often moved me and my wife to tears."
