Just How Hard is a Black Panther Film, Anyway?

One of the weirdest things about being a black comics fan, other than basically being invisible a lot of the time, is that you're more likely to find a comic starring an alien or animal than you are a black man, and good luck finding a comic starring a black woman! Black characters are seen as harder to write, too. Sometimes writers, big name A-list writers, will explain that they just don't feel comfortable writing black characters, because what if they mess up or the characters are inauthentic or they are accidentally racist?
