Directed by Ryan Coogler with serious muscle and style, and magisterially imagined by production designer Hannah Beachler and costume designer Ruth E Carter, Black Panther makes you rue that it took this long for a studio to try it. "I thought they just did a phenomenal job of introducing the main character from this film, casting Chadwick, casting Dr. John Kani and Florence Kasumba". We don't get to see that every summer, and we should. On the other hand, Martin Freeman's returning Central Intelligence Agency operative feels like a stock fish-out-of-water character, and Daniel Kaluuya may be riding high after Get Out but he's a little underused here. Check out the full review below. What happens this night in Oakland will come back to haunt T'Challa many years later. And where fetishistic objects of desire go, very bad men must follow: chief among them arms dealer Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis, having a ball with his gold incisors and wheezy lunatic's giggle) and Michael B. Jordan's brooding mercenary Erik Killmonger.

Black Panther is about a prince of a fictitious African nation of Wakanda who becomes a superhero known as Black Panther. Coogler and company effectively envision a self-contained society where competing tribes (mostly) unite under a king caught between protecting the nation's security and wanting his country to be part of the worldwide community. If weaponized, it could tip the balance to any warring conflict, so it is easy to see why they are hiding from outsiders who may exploit their valuable resource for nefarious purposes. While ultimately an action-adventure, "Black Panther" also serves as an intelligent if broad debate between revolutionary rhetoric and the responsibilities of leadership. Barriers created for protection and safety. He mines the wellspring of history to tell a superhero story born of something much deeper.

If you could pick three people for your superhero lineup who would you pick and why?

About his character the actor says, "He is a leader and also a superhero". There is even a cultural divide that speaks to what is going on today. Coogler is that kid and this is his fairy tale-a fairy tale for other kids who rarely get them, and never like this. They carry their nationality on their shoulders with pride. Killmonger ranks along with Tom Hiddleston's Loki as the MCU's best-defined villains, and by film's end, his character's drive, ambitions and inner psychological tangles are all laid bare.

The script by Coogler and Joe Robert Cole touches on big issues. Again, I'm trying to be as vague as I can because I want you to experience this film blindly like I did. One that dares to do something different and something more meaningful.

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. Everything in the film, from the music to the stylistic choices and the mythology is inspired by the handsome diversity of the African cultures.
