Marvel's 'Black Panther' is a new high point for superhero cinema

Chadwick Boseman as King T’Challa in “Black Panther.”

The movie takes place in the mythical African kingdom of Wakanda and raises questions about what Africa might have looked like had it never been stripped of its resources.

"If you want to film out in public - and Captain Marvel has a lot of scenes that will be shot on location - it's gonna happen". However, with Black Panther, they seemed to have taken the idea of strong women and really upped the ante. They've been featured in the teasers we've seen for the flick to-date, but whether or not they'll get to enjoy the spotlight remains to be seen. In the comic books (at time of writing) Ta-Nehisi Coates and Evan Narcisse are taking Black Panther and Wakanda to the stars.

Variety: Although previous big-screen examples certainly exist - among them Wesley Snipes' "Blade" and Will Smith's "Hancock" - "Black Panther" celebrates its hero's heritage while delivering one of Marvel's most all-around appealing standalone installments to date. "I think it's great", Bernans said. While there was buzz about the box office clash between Akshay Kumar starrer and Sidharth Malhotra starrer, it is the Marvel movie that has won, unsurprisingly!

"When I watched (Civil War), I was so excited", Coogler said.

It's a special night and weekend for many people. It has also eclipsed Disney's Beauty and the Beast ($174.7M) and WB/DC's Batman v. Superman ($166M) to become the biggest pre-summer opener of all-time.

Black Panther succeeds on so many levels, and while it isn't ideal, it hits on themes that Marvel has shied away from in the past.

One thing you can appreciate about "Black Panther" is that it's not overdone. Do let us know your opinion in the comments section below.

Outside of the Eddie Murphy classic "Coming to America", you'll be hard-pressed to recall a blockbuster film that portrays black royalty in a believable and respectful way. "It wasn't posturing. He just wanted to have the movie in his bones, so that when he got on-set he was ready".

Directed by black director Ryan Coogler and featuring actors including Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Lupita Nyong'o and Forest Whittaker, the film has received widespread critical acclaim after years of criticism about the under-representation of black people in Hollywood.

Something that will be new to many audiences is not just the almost all-black cast in a superhero movie, but its sci-fi-influenced, Afro-futuristic world.
