Marvel Studios' Black Panther T'challa  black Panther Chadwick Boseman Ph Film Frame

- Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Clinton McDonald is hosting a free screening for Central Arkansas children of the Marvel movie "Black Panther". "Not only do you see the power and potential of where you're from, but you see how skewed it's viewed by the world, and how misrepresented it is, and how distorted it's received by the world so often". "There are vistas, costumes and settings that keep the images popping off the screen, even though this Marvel offering is not in 3D". So, unlike some of the biggest stars now playing superheroes, Boseman didn't have to do anything to get the role. In this regard, Black Panther shares similar themes with Thor - heavy is the crown and all that - but if Thor is repeating a story that has been told a thousand times, Black Panther is telling it in a new way. "An answer to a culture's question, 'When will it be our time in the sun?'" Let us know how excited you are for Black Panther by giving the movie your own User Anticipation Rating below. As a studio, Marvel has thrived by redefining the constructs of serialized cinematic storytelling, honoring the comic book characters fans love, and allowing filmmakers to put their singular stamp on the material. "It's gripping, funny, and full of spectacle, but it also feels like a turning point, one where the studio has finally recognized that its movies can be about more than just selling the next installment".

In that thread, as well as another that fleshes out Killmonger's past, Coogler (who also co-wrote the script with Joe Robert Cole) has taken the source material - and a character introduced in 1966 - and delivered an unexpectedly relevant and timely movie, one with something to say woven into its fantastic trappings.

And it's a pretty wonderful story too.

Then there's Erik "Killmonger" Stevens (Michael B. Jordan), a renegade Black Ops soldier of Wakandan descent who has vengeance and violence on his agenda.

Personally? Man, just doing more stuff around the world and using her intelligence. "That the actors all have story arcs to play makes their work all the more substantial".

Hong Kong court lets democracy activist Joshua Wong walk free
Hong Kong and mainland Chinese officials accused the American politicians of interfering in domestic Chinese affairs. The disqualifications killed the pro-democracy lawmakers' veto powers in the legislative council.

He said: "I didn't think that would be an issue, because of the other characters that I played".

Marvel has yet to officially talk about any plans for a Black Panther sequel, though given that Boseman has a five-picture deal and the volume of advance ticket sales in the USA, it's pretty much a shoo-in. She's radiant and clever, and it's easy to see why T'Challa's former lover still holds his heart, but N'yong'o elevates Nakia beyond a standard love interest.

"Black Panther" certainly moves the story along - in fact, it continues in "Avengers: Infinity War", coming May 4, followed by, surely, a hundred more of these things. The events of that film would lead up to the Wakandian king's standalone film, Black Panther.

That brings us to Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) as Okoye, the head of the Dora Milaje, who's been described by Gurira as a traditionalist, and someone "very proud of her people, her country, and her heritage". "Black Panther isn't just levelling out representation in Hollywood, it's inspiring the next generation of real-life heroes, and that's what makes this film truly magnificent".

Chandwick recently opened up about the possibility of a Black Panther sequel: "I'm enjoying this moment, Chadwick said (via Variety)".
