Black Panther was a refreshing addition to the Marvel movie franchise. It’s good to have something that hasn’t really been touched on after exhausting a series such as The Avengers. This movie is based around the fantastical nation known as Wakanda, an African Eden where verdant-green landscapes meet blue-sky science fiction. In Wakanda, there are spaceships with undercarriages that resemble tribal masks that soar over majestic waterfalls, making this story more than just branding.
The main character who is home to Wakanda is Black Panther, a.k.a. T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), the newest addition to the movie franchise. Black Panther was created in 1966 by Stan Lee (script) and Jack Kirby (art). The original Black Panther debuted alongside the Fantastic Four in an adventure in Wakanda, which is powered by a mystery metal, vibranium.
The director of this movie, Ryan Coogler who also directed “Creed”, brought former co-worker Michael B. Jordan to participate in this project. Coogler was given a stunning $200 million to use to produce this movie, and the quality of this cinema shows it. With all of the skyscrapers, spaceships and beautifully designed costumes, the most was made out of the given money.
Overall, this movie is great for anyone who’s a fan of Marvel superhero movies, and this definitely tops the charts. With many high action scenes and edge-of-seat moments, it was entirely worth watching. And anyone who was already in love with the Black Panther comics will really enjoy watching it come to life on the big screen all while seeing beautiful Wakanda and immersing themselves in the in-depth story. In my personal opinion, I feel as if this movie will be nominated for many Oscars in the future.
