Apparently, he made the jokes funnier:
“Director, Ryan Coogler, was gracious enough to be like, ‘Will you take a look at this script?’ Which was really cool. Marvel locks things down, so we had not as much time as I would’ve wanted. We had a couple of hours to punch up some jokes and stuff like that. It was already there anyway. They had already done a great job, so it was really cool to just get our fingerprints on there a bit.”

Coogler had previously revealed Glover, who received a thank-you credit in Black Panther along with younger brother Stephen, assisted him with the script. “Donald and Stephen actually gave me notes on a draft,” he told Collider . “They came in and read the draft. Right before we started the shoot, and they had some cool insight.”

“It wasn’t that kind of a thing where it was ‘change this, change that,'” Coogler continued in response to if he made any changes based on the Glovers’ insight. “We were looking at ways to add a few more character things with specifically Shuri, where she pokes fun at her brother. Donald’s one of the funniest people that I know, so he had some interesting ideas, and Stephen’s crazy talented as well.”

Black Panther grossed an impressive $242 million domestically and $427 million worldwide and counting.


Having just recently performed at the Grammy’s, Glover will star in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story as the young Lando Calrissian.

However, before Solo arrives on May 25, Glover and the rest of his crew will be back for the March 1 premiere of FX’s Atlanta: Robbin’ Season.
