Black Panther is still the No. 1 movie in the world, raking in over $704 million -- and counting -- less than two weeks since its debut. So, in honor of the Marvel film, Jimmy Fallon and the star of Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman, decided to have some fun with fans. 

During last night's (Feb. 28) episode of "The Tonight Show," the talk show host had Boseman stand behind a curtain as fans of Black Panther looked at a large poster of him and talk about why the project meant so much to them. “For me, as the mother of a young son, my son’s childhood has been defined by Barack Obama and now Black Panther. So, thank you,” one woman said, as her child stood next to her. 

Other fans spoke about how the movie proves that "art can change the world" and even bragged about the amount of times that they've seen it -- which was a lot. Another fan added: “Representation is very important. It gives the kids hope and it gives them the confidence to say things like, ‘Hey, are you Killmonger’s mamma?’ on the street when I’m going to work. I appreciate that. I thought I had a stylish haircut.”

As lovers of the film were saying these comments, Boseman popped out from behind the curtain each and every time. To say that people were shocked would be an understatement Some even teared up!
