Film with predominantly black actors was overdue - Black Panther's Andy Serkis

Film with predominantly black actors was overdue - Black Panther's Andy Serkis”

The track itself is taken from the upcoming soundtrack for the new Marvel film Black Panther. I mean if "we" bring the gasoline, and "we" light the fire, why should we be screaming "help me?" It's important to note that the ownership and creation of Black Panther are by white men. It reminded me a lot of the tragedies that I read in college with their mighty but flawed characters.

Chadwick Boseman follows up a memorable Captain America: Civil War appearance as African ruler T'Challa (and his masked warrior alter ego) with a roaring solo adventure that unleashes James Bond-style spycraft, geopolitics galore and tribal intrigue a la Game of Thrones.

Still, the future is bright for the people of Wakanda, and during the creation of Black Panther, Ryan Coogler made it his mission to visit Africa in order to create a truly authentic portrayal of Marvel's secret utopia.

Wakanda happens to have a place where the living and the dead can communicate freely.

Unlike other comic-book films that lean into hero-vs. -hero smackdowns, Black Panther differentiates itself by having a loyal cadre of allies for its main character. "Like "Wonder Woman" past year, "Black Panther" is a project that fans have been waiting decades to see". The story is one that stands on its own with a clear beginning, middle, and end. It doesn't hit you over the head with social commentary, though. Can superhero films, so often a tiresome mash of effects, be this dazzlingly colorful?

The women in the movie are so incredibly interesting and three-dimensional. Fortunately, T'challa's dramatic journey has enough depth to keep us focused on him.

While Vulture's David Edelstein praises the cast of Black Panther for their performances, he's one of the critics who point out that the fight sequences should be better.

Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger was completely delicious. Not an evil character, Killmonger's reason for being who he is and doing what he does completely makes sense. I'm not qualified just because I look like this...

Boseman, Jordan, Nyong'o, Gurira, Kaluuya, Freeman and Wright are all expected to attend.

While on their casino stakeout, there's definite flirtation between T'Challa and Nakia, who's also his ex. All of the women are represented as having their own objective and individual drive. Shuri is the technical wiz, an nearly Q-esque type character who is an absolute joy to watch in every scene she's in. Letitia Wright plays her as a modern millennial who really enjoys making miracles through technology. Wright steals every scene with her bright smile and ideal comedic timing. "Then he came in and watched quite a bit of the movie, and the next thing I know, they were booking a studio and they were going at it".
