In the end, he thanked his audience for giving him a ‘professional purpose’ and an ’emotion outlet’, he also ensured to bring more stories in future.

The film was released on November 11 and starred Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright and Angela Bassett while introducing Tenoch Huerta as Namor, Mabel Cadena as Namora and Dominique Thorne as Ironheart.
