The world premier for the latest Marvel movie, Black Panther took place in Los Angeles last week. One of Marvel’s most anticipated movies didn’t disappoint.
Although proper reviews are being held off until the release of the latest superhero title, the social media embargo for the film was lifted shortly after the world premiere screening — and those lucky enough to see it with the entire cast in attendance have been tweeting up a storm about Ryan Coogler’s “revolutionary” film.
Black Panther, the first major superhero film directed by a black man and starring a predominantly black cast is a new benchmark for representation and storytelling.
‘Black Panther was STUNNING. The movie itself tackles a lot of different issues, including a complex villain and the moral struggles that come with being king.’
‘Black Panther is exceptional – the James Bond of the MCU. You’ve seen nothing like this in a superhero movie – it’s bold, beautiful & intense, but there’s a depth & spiritualness that is unlike anything Marvel has ever done.’
