Oh yes, if you're going to do the first black superhero movie of the modern era, this is how you do it. Now that the moment has arrived though, it feels like nothing less than a sea change: a wave started by Wonder Woman past year and grown to full swell in Panther's moral weight and real-world currency. I was a deer in headlights as a myriad of stars walked past me, or casually approached with a drink in hand and chatting up their sycophants.
Seated in the row behind prolific author Tananarive Due and Entertainment Weekly columnist Anthony Brenzican, I was excited to share my thoughts about what we were about to experience. If it falls six points, Black Panther will still be on even footing with the first Iron Man, which helped kick off the MCU almost 10 years ago.
Chadwick Boseman isn't anxious about being typecast as a superhero from now on. Boseman, who plays the titular role of Wakanda king T'Challa aka Black Panther, believes the character has an aura of James Bond around it that makes it ever more interesting.
In forming the plot and tone, Coogler said he was inspired by Ta-Nehisi Coates' Black Panther comic run - including his "poetic dialogue", and Brian Stelfreeze's art - and the work of Jack Kirby, Christopher Priest, Jonathan Hickman, and Reginald Hudlin.
As it has already been established that the X-Men will not be a part of the MCU anytime soon it perhaps makes sense to develop to separate universes and perhaps merge them at some point in the future. It was risky because, in most cases, this can cause a film to become confusing and end up all over the place.
Middle schoolers at Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta found out they were going to see the "Black Panther" on Friday, they erupted into dancing to an instrumental from the "Black Panther" soundtrack in a now-viral video on Twitter.
"Direct from the eagerly anticipated and groundbreaking feature film, Mezco welcomes Black Panther into the One:12 Collective". The action scenes felt real, and the stunt actors move gingerly amongst each other so well that during their choreography you can see punches and kicks with ideal precision.
Aiding and abetting this risky ploy is Erik Killmonger (a beyond-charismatic Michael B. Jordan of Creed), an ex-US military agent who knows more than he is letting on about the mystical Wakandan way of life.
"Something", she pleads. "Do something, you guys!" "Then I saw [the scenes with T'Challa and T'Chaka] and was blown away".
"I hope everybody does", she exclaims. "Each of these designers has taken inspiration from the incredible storytelling, empowering characters and iconic look of the movie, while bringing their own unique aesthetic to the designs".
Participating young people will also receive a book to take home from the organization First Book.
Black Panther hits theatres nationwide on February 16. The description also indicated that the creator of the event also meant to make the same events for "Avengers: Infinity War" and some of Netflix's shows.
The final word: it's afro-futuristic and Blackity-black as hell.
"Honestly, this entire experience was quite humbling". I left the theater wanting to see this movie at least 10 more times.
I plan to see it again opening weekend.
The movie's megawatt casting, with stars like Chadwick Boseman, Lupita N'yongo, Angela Bassett and Michael B. Jordan, and jaw-dropping special effects are sure to deliver an unforgettable experience for superhero fans.
