After winning the top prize at last night’s SAG Awards, some fans weren’t happy with the cast of the film for not including the creator of the superhero in their acceptance speech.
Chadwick Boseman, who played the role of Black Panther, spoke for the cast and thanked the director, Disney execs, producers, and Marvel Studios execs, but didn’t say anything about creator Stan Lee or co-creator Jack Kirby.
That sent fans on Twitter into a tizzy. Combine that with the fact that Lee wasn’t mentioned during the “In Memoriam” portion of the show and you’ve got a real problem with Marvel fans.
After the win, Michael B. Jordan did that Lee and Kirby when he made comments after the win, but fans didn’t think that was enough.
Do you think that Boseman was wrong for not mentioning Stan Lee in his acceptance speech? Was mentioning Lee after the win count? Did you even notice that Chadwick didn’t mention Stan Lee during his acceptance speech?
