It does, although I’m not sure what exactly I’ve broken through! It’s the sort of part I wasn’t sure I’d ever get to play, but I just happened to be right for the role. It wasn’t written for someone of any specific ethnicity, and we didn’t shoehorn it in afterward. We need those kinds of advances too, as well as deliberate steps forward like Black Panther, which was very consciously the first black superhero movie. My character’s background isn’t even mentioned, it’s just there as a statement of fact, and that’s powerful in itself.
