Posted by: on Feb 25, 2018 | No Comments

First and foremost, this article will be spoiler free, now with that said, it seems like the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has struck again with its latest offering the Black Panther.  Black Panther is directed by Ryan Coogler, who co-wrote the screenplay with Joe Robert Cole, and stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa / Black Panther, alongside Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. The film centers around Black Panther, T’Challa return home as king of Wakanda but finds his sovereignty challenged by a long-time adversary, in a conflict with global consequences.

I was on the fence with Black Panther after I seen the first teaser and full trailer for the movie. I had my concerns because I couldn’t figure out how they could top the awesome introduction of T’Challa/Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War released in 2016. I never read any comics on Black Panther so Civil War was my first introduction of the character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1966.

I confirm with full confidence that Black Panther solo film exceeded beyond my expectations.  Black Panther was absolutely incredible! Finally a mainstream film that truly depict Black people with class, grace, intelligence and power .  This was definitely a bold move by Marvel and Disney. The ladies in the film, Black Panther’s  royal guard, The Dora Milaje were just amazing. I was pleased with how African culture was represented and respected.  I had to co-sign on the majority of what Michael B. Jordan character Erik  Killmonger believed as how Africa resources were stolen and our people enslaved by other countries. We are not a hopeless people but a strong people. This film was so empowering. The film left me feeling good inside but also let me know as a society we still have more work to do on both sides.  I can assure you that I will be seeing a second screening in a few weeks.

Black Panther  wasn’t just a great film it broke all kind of records at the box office. The film had an estimated budget of $200 million  and has already took in $548.9 million worldwide. The film jumped off to a awesome start last Thursday with a $25 million  with 3 –day total of $200 million, just falling a few million to The Avengers : Age of Ultron 3 –day record of $207 million. Personally, I think the film can hit $1 billion dollars worldwide before it leaves the theaters. I think Marvel and Disney have struck gold with T’Challa and the Black Panther property. I’m ready for  Black Panther 2 now!
