Viktor told the New York Times: "It's an ethical issue, because what the whole film purports is that it's about black empowerment, African excellence-that's the whole concept of the story". Understandably, both Viktor and her lawyer were upset to see her work appear in the video after making it clear that she didn't want to participate in the campaign after first being contacted in 2016.

Black Panther is set for release on 12 February in United Kingdom cinemas and is expected to be one of the biggest films of the year - with a record for first day ticket pre-sales for a superhero film already broken.

The buzz began mounting after the surprise announcement was accompanied by the first track, "All The Stars" by Kendrick Lamar and SZA.

In an interview, Viktor said what matters to her most is the principle, not compensation.
