Former first lady Michelle Obama tweeted a shoutout Monday to the new Marvel superhero film, “Black Panther.”
“Congrats to the entire #blackpanther team!” she tweeted. “Because of you, young people will finally see superheroes that look like them on the big screen. I loved this movie and I know it will inspire people of all backgrounds to dig deep and find the courage to be heroes of their own stories.”
The movie grossed $201 million at the box office over the weekend, according to The Washington Post.
Other high-profile Democrats to send shoutouts to the film include Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who both posted tweets about the movie.
