    Yeah better choices

    Also there is a stigma for actors involved in Star Wars movies where very few shake off just being known for their star wars role...see Luke Skywalker Anakin Skywalker actors...

    Also Michael B looks more like a Hollywood prototypical superstar where Boyega looks kind of goofy so Michael B will get more opportunities for leading roles

    Hollywood is trying desperately to put Michael B in the Will Smith Denzel tier

    Still aint seen Boyega in an actual good film. Every role he takes is attached to something thats either mids or garbage.

    af far as this thread, hoes ain't trying to fukk JB. Neither of them are great actor, I'll give JB the slight edge but he has no star power.

    he's right, black folks weren't watching The Wire in bunches

    I actually heard of the show around my hs senior year 07/08, when the last season was airing. I've only watched that season and none of the other.

    Boseman can act his ass off

    But he’s a lil too old and hadn’t really gone down the path of action superstar aside from Black Panther (which is for black people but not really).

    MBJ didn’t become a “sex symbol” until he got swoll af for the first creed. Then he stole the show as Killmonger (still swoll) and came back even bigger for Creed 2.

    Basically homie just got in crazy shape and picked better, more popular roles than most younger black actors both British and American.

    He’s always had quality roles. Even in Chronicle he was the only likeable character. His only dud was FF4

    MBJs movies are better than he is if that makes sense.

    Look at Denzel. When Denzel is in a movie, HE IS THE MOVIE, but MBJ just gets by imo.

    I wouldn’t say all that but there are other elements that make MBJ’s movies good movies besides him, I agree with that.

    Denzel could be in a shyt movie or good movie and still be good because he’s Denzel. I’m not sure why we compare the 2 though. Boseman is more closer to Denzel than MBJ... he just doesn’t have the roles or popularity of Denzel caliber.


    But not many black actors are Denzel anyway. Not even Idras (could be tho)

    Idris is like Dwayne Johnson, they dont know how to pick roles.

    If Will Smith never did Fresh Prince, id say MBJ was similar to him where everything about the movie they were in was good, and he did enough to seal the deal.

    Boyega comes off as a lame to me. He was prolly the kid in drama classes back in highschool trying to be Shakespearean. You be like that and be the badass action star. MBJ seems more relatable to me. He seems like more of a regular dude who fell into acting.

    Out of the three you named, only Will had a run like that.
    Denzel carried roles but pure box office clout was never his strength.
    Clooney had plenty of flops too. His only big surefire was the Oceans movies.

    Idris is more like a Clooney than a Denzel n he's def not Will.

    Will had the box office, Denzel had the craft and acclaim, Clooney had the likeability factor.
    White dudes wanted to be him, white women wanted to screw him.

    Thats Idris Elba to a tee
