Michael B. Jordan: 'Black Panther shows black kids they can be superheroes'

History of Black Panther- Page Break

In both instances, the title character is presented in a stand-alone origin story, after having been rather hastily introduced elsewhere - in this case, among the dozen combatants in "Captain America: Civil War".

Black Panther is by far the most political Marvel film to date, and by exploring those aforementioned themes it allows it to stand on its own. The first critic reviews have been released online this morning and it's safe to say that there is a positive word of mouth surrounding the critics. Nevertheless, "Black Panther" pounces toward the head of the class in a way that should make the King, and his key subjects, a cornerstone of an already-formidable roster. However after a couple of concept designs, the iconic panther claw chain that drapes Black Panther's cowl became the main inspiration for the influential soon to be hit album.

Putting aside the excellent heroics and action, "Black Panther" is a film that provides a different perspective from the previous 17 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We were coming up with the story for [Captain America] Civil War [when] Nate Moore, our executive producer, suggested bringing in Black Panther because we were looking for a third party that wouldn't necessarily side with Cap or Iron Man.

It sees Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa return home after the death of his father King T'Chaka (John Kani), to be crowned his successor and achieve the full potency of his alter ego Black Panther.

Claire wants to save the dinosaurs from extinction but with the help of Owen Grady ( Chris Pratt ). Ian Malcolm and his friends barely escaped the T-Rex while driving in their Jeep Wrangler.

The average rating for Black Panther right now is an 8.6/10, while Thor: Ragnarok's score was 7.5/10 and Spider-Man: Homecoming's score was 7.7/10 in comparison. Black Panther is everything it needs to be and more. Just visiting the other superheroes in the Marvel Universe and just be like, "Hey Captain America!". Chadwick Boseman (42, Marshall) stars as T'Challa, newly anointed king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda and heir to its secret wonder, Vibranium, a meteor-borne metal so powerful it can redirect energy and so rare - outside its homeland, at least - that its value is nearly incalculable. What happens this night in Oakland will come back to haunt T'Challa many years later.

Plus, though they didn't know it at the time, that decision was also a huge factor in landing director Ryan Coogler, who was at first unsure if Black Panther should be his next film. Just putting that group together for one film deserves accolades. He goes with the general of the Dora Milaje, Okoye played by the legitimately flawless being that is Danai Gurira and his ex-lover, Nakia played by Lupita Nyong'o. I said, 'Hey, you got to get me out of this!' I think it begins to feel like skin after a while.

An infamous arms dealer, Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis), has somehow got his grubby hands on some vibranium, and has every intention to sell it to the highest bidder on the black market.

Fragile allegiances fracture and CIA-trained operative Erik "Killmonger" Stevens (Jordan) chooses this moment to stage a bloody coup. If we start talking about sequels - if we do four of them, two of them, three of them - I just want them all to be special like this one.
