Black Panther, A Cultural Phenomenon in the Making

Director Ryan Coogler’s latest addition to the Marvel cinematic universe “Black Panther,” opens in wide release this weekend

In Black Panther, the throne falls to his son, T'Challa (Bozeman), to whom we were introduced in Civil War via a heart-thumping chase scene .

Black Panther is already coming under fire for heavily pushing the identitarian racial politics to the point where plenty of non-blacks have opted out of seeing the film. Boseman grows into a competent leader and could be key in replacing the likes of Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans as the MCU continues (their contracts are up).

The Black Panther DLC pack will run $2.99 and can be purchased separately or as part of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 Season Pass, which includes six Level Packs and four Character packs. T'Challa received his superpowers through ancient rituals, which he uses to combat enemies. She is just one of a female-heavy cast that drives the film.

Fox then concluded the interview by declaring, "Go Black Panther", and raising her fist.

Those tickets are sold out but you can still catch the film when it premieres in theaters this week.

Provo said after the movie is over, there will be a discussion led by some local black role models, and he hopes the kids will leave inspired. Pre-sales are the surest way to see how momentum is going: "The momentum is gathering steam as opposed to slowing down".

The excitement surrounding the film, and the critical plaudits it's earned in droves, also shows that there is an audience for African-American films, something Hollywood had no idea of when "Blade" came out in 1998, Snipes said.
