It is further gathered that although Ghana National Folklore Board are yet to officially write Marvel who produced the film, they are getting ready to do that.

Ms Adobea who spoke on behalf of the board said,

“We are preparing a legal dossier. The strategy is that we are not going in for a fight,” she indicated, adding “it is not adversarial”.

She further explained that permissions are not required of anyone intending to use any of the Ghanaian symbols and folklore in a customary context or for personal use. In addition, she said the Board will “sit down with them [Marvel Studios], negotiate as to how they can compensate [Ghana] because they were to come for permission but they did not”.
