The film was released on February 16.

A prevailing belief among some in Hollywood has been that movies with mostly black casts don't do well at the foreign box office, but Disney reported $169 million in global ticket sales - a figure expected to climb dramatically when "Black Panther" opens in major markets including China, Japan and Russian Federation. I feel like I'm a part of something very different to what I've done until now. Tested by powerful outside forces and a risky enemy, T'Challa must fight for the fate of his beloved country and the entire world. Series writer Ta'Nehisi Coates will remain with the series and will be joined by artist Daniel Acuña, who recently illustrated a story in Black Panther Annual #1.

So, with no further ado, let's jump into the Top 10 Greatest Moments in Black Panther... And our team was made up (of) unbelievable people from all over the world who believed in this story.

The villain, and maybe the most interesting character in the film, is Erik Killmonger. Instead, he is shown as a relatable antagonist.

He also told the agents that he did not know why an email between him and Person A was not produced to Mueller's office. Russian Federation has denied meddling in the campaign and Trump has denied any collusion took place.

Yes, much like "Wonder Woman", "Black Panther" has soared at the box office in its first week of release, earning more than $200 million. "We congratulate the filmmakers and the studio on delivering a groundbreaking superhero movie that keeps audiences coming back again and again". Black Panther #1 will hit comic shops, digital and anywhere new comics are sold on May 23.

Taking it in stride, Boseman is also reflecting on the significance of Black History Month, and how more needs to be done for the annual observance.

The Hollywood Reporter adds that the film was enjoyed by a particularly diverse group of movie-goers. In short, it isn't the wisest of methods to use if you're looking to sneak into a movie nonchalantly, but hey, when you're a teen, logic isn't always on your side. Black Panther is a massive achievement for representation in the same way that Wonder Woman was past year, and most importantly, the film totally delivered, so much so that we have a whole list's worth of exciting and cool moments to talk about.
