Tony says it's no secret ... black kids love T'Challa, and says they're gonna flock to theaters to see him kick ass on the big screen. Plus, he says it's a chance to see black people depicted in a positive light. Leading live-action black superheroes are scant outside of Shaq (Steel), Wesley Snipes (Blade) and Mike Colter (Luke Cage).
Side note ... Tony's kicked in some cash to send kids from Harlem to the movie on his dime. Sounds like he's gonna shell out even more, too.
