Selected filmography

Associated Tropes:

  • Method Acting: While working as T'Challa he never drops the accent, due to worry that he couldn't keep it consistent otherwise.
  • Older Than They Look: Is in his 40s, yet could pass for late 20s or even younger. He was 37 when Draft Day was shot and he played someone in his early 20s.
  • Real Men Love Jesus: Like his fellow MCU star Chris Pratt, he's a devout Christian.
  • Typecasting: He's played a lot of historical figures—Jackie Robinson, James Brown, and Thurgood Marshall.
