New Delhi, Sep 27 (PTI) British star John Boyega says he signed on for Viola Davis-led "The Woman King" as he believed the film explores an important chapter in Black history beyond "surface level".

The Gina Prince-Bythewood directorial, about an all-female warrior unit who protected the African kingdom of Dahomey in the 19th century, features Boyega as King Ghezo.

As much as the action sequences will enthral the audiences, the "nuanced and detailed look" at the Black history is not to be missed out, the "Star Wars" alum said.
