The day has finally come, a day that so many Marvel fans has been looking forward to for years. Sure, there have been plenty of superhero movies released over the past few years while the Marvel universe continues to create a web of overlapping stories--and it was only a matter of time before it happened.
Fellow fans, we are so excited to say that the Black Panther movie is finally HERE!
A superhero sworn to protect his people and king of his home, the African nation of Wakanda, T'Challa is a warrior in every sense of the word. While he is naturally skilled as a fighter, T'Challa gains enhanced strength from a heart-shaped herb. This makes him even more capable of protecting his home--and even saving the world. His suit is made of vibranium, a metal that's found in Wakanda, and it's the same metal that Captain America's shield is made of. (It should be noted that both "Wakanda" and "vibranium" are fictional; they exist only in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and comic books.)
The last we saw Black Panther was in Captain America: Civil War, where he witnessed the death of Wakanda's previous king: T'Chaka, his father. He spent a good portion of the film hunting down Captain America and Bucky, believing that Bucky was the one who murdered his father. When this is proven false by the end of the film, T'Challa realizes that he can no longer be consumed by revenge. Though he continues to be in mourning, T'Challa slowly starts to come to terms with his father's death, and knows that he must be prepared to become the new king of Wakanda.
Black Panther was directed by Ryan Coogler, and written by him and Joe Robert Cole. This Marvel Studios film features an amazing cast, including Chadwick Boseman, Michael Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Andy Serkis, and many more.
Simply put, this moving is going to rock our freakin' world!
And, as always, we're keeping our fingers crossed for a cameo by the one and only Stan Lee.
