"When I came and sat down to watch Civil War before it came out, I was trying to make my mind up if the film was right for me", Coogler told us.
Reviews are in for Ryan Coogler's Black Panther, and they are easily the best for a Marvel Studios project to date, with nearly everyone left in awe not only of the movie's ambition, but its success in achieving that ambition on the big screen. 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. At a certain point, a villain threatening to destroy a city becomes a ho-hum threat, and Black Panther knows it.
Additionally, Black-Panther-inspired capsule collections from Brother Vellies, Douriean Fletcher, and Josh Bennett will also be on display at the event, each becoming available for purchase on their respective websites on February 13. The final coda is as direct an address to the xenophobia at home in our current administration as that which you'll find in any film this year, let alone a giant Marvel movie. But somewhere along the line, that changed - probably starting with Shane Black's brilliant Iron Man 3, and even further with Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and even further again with James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy.
The gentlemen are featured as the cover story of the latest issue of Variety, covering their journey into bringing Black Panther from cult comic favorite to the big screen.
Smack dab in the center is of course the star, Chadwick Boseman, as Wakandan king-to-be T'Challa and the titular Black Panther.
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.
Coming into Black Panther I was prepared for a lot of things, but I wasn't prepared to get emotional. However, Black Panther carefully places its puzzle pieces to fit nicely around each of the subplots and storylines. T'Challa also known as Black Panther is introduced in Captain America: Civil War, and fans will get a look into the character's story leading into the new film.
Four of the African nation's five clans, including a border tribe led by T'Challa's best friend W'Kabi (Kaluuya), support his ascension, but the Jabari mountain people commanded by M'Baku (Duke) loudly voice their opposition. Whereas, in our film that character is just settling in.
Before we even get to the credits, Coogler gives us a potted history of Wakanda.
T'Challa, king and protector of the technologically advanced fictional African nation of Wakanda, has been characterised as the first black superhero, which is partly true. It's also an expensive commodity, one that Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis, in a rare live-action performance) is hot to get. 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. We're doing what we want.
