From the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) to Japanese animation
The stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe sometimes have strong affinities with other essential pop culture media.

Team Dragon Ball, One Piece or Demon Slayer?
His growing popularity within the Marvel Cinematic Universe does not prevent him from taking the time to answer the most diverse questions from his fans, especially when they concern a subject that seems to fascinate him… Winston Duke reveals what is his series of the moment !
My favorite anime is “Demon Slayer”!!!!, definitely. Followed by “My Hero Academia”. – Winston Duke (M’Baku in Black Panther and Wakanda Forever)
It should nevertheless be specified that the question of the Internet user on the Twitter account of the actor concerned only the series attached to the category of anime shônen. We will therefore never know if Winston Duke is also fond of more confidential anime or seinen manga but we see that these are neither dragonballneither One Piecewhich came directly to mind. The actor behind the character of M’Baku much prefers the essential Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaibawithout hiding either his assumed interest in the peregrinations of “Deku” in My Hero Academia. If you too follow these two series diligently, you will now have an amused thought for Winston Duke who may well be dreaming of a live adaptation of Demon Slayer…
And if you don’t know Demon Slayer yet, know that this is the best-selling manga in Japan in 2019 and 2020, becoming one of the most lucrative media franchises of all time.
