“They are impressed by it,” Brown said, adding, “They’re not impressed that I’m in it.”

Meyers then asked Brown if his 8-year-old son Andrew was at least impressed by his role in “Black Panther”.

“He’s impressed with it, but here’s a note to the wise. If you take your son to a movie where the character that plays your son dies, he may have a traumatic effect,” Sterling laughed. “When Killmonger died in the movie, first time in a movie—no, ‘Pete’s Dragon’ was the first time he cried in a movie. This is the second time. But he was convulsing.”

He continued, “I had to, like, pick him up, sit him on my lap and rock him and tell him it was gonna be okay. And afterwards, when we went to the after-party, he would not leave my side. He was like, ‘When are we going home? We’re going together. Until then, I’m not leaving you.’ It was beautiful. Probably. We got introduced to the MCU pretty early.”
