Anthony Mackie says 'Black Panther' film doesn't need a black director

Marvel is currently looking for a director for its upcoming Black Panther film, after Ava DuVernay turned down the job offer. But while the studio has said it wants to find a black director for the film, which will be Marvel's first solo film in which the title character is black, Captain America star Anthony Mackie says the race of the director shouldn't factor into the decision.
