'What Black Panther Means to Me' hashtag trends nationwide as fans celebrate

While he's gotten used to to wearing the Black Panther suit, it seems Boseman had issues with it during the filming of Captain America: Civil War. A film like "Black Panther" - a dynamic action film with a focused, timely message - is what keeps this ever-growing franchise fresh.

Black Panther opens worldwide on February 16.

Ryan Sands: Spider Man, Black Panther and the Thing. "The intriguing thing about Black Panther is that it doesn't look like a superhero film - more a wide-eyed fantasy romance: exciting, subversive and amusing", wrote The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw, while Empire magazine's Jimi Famurewa made favourable comparisons to its immediate Marvel predecessor Ragnarok.

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.

Eagles release statement on Brian Dawkins' Hall of Fame selection
He led the 49ers in receptions five times and ranks second in their history with 592 catches, 8,572 yards, and 81 TDs. The Class of 2018 added two players to the lineup of Pro Football Hall of Fame players with Alabama roots.

While conventional wisdom would expect some form of world-threatening destruction in a superhero film, Black Panther wisely eschews the trappings of tropes for a deeper pondering unlike anything yet seen in this genre. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life. While Boseman and Jordan hold center stage, the women's roles are especially meaty and muscular, with Lupita Nyong'o as T'Challa's self-sufficient former flame, "The Walking Dead's" Danai Gurira - stealing every scene she's in - as the fierce leader of the king's guard, and Letitia Wright as T'Challa's brilliant sister, whose gift for gadgets essentially makes her the Q to her big brother's James Bond. And I'm just thinking about what this movie is going to do to the kids growing up. Directed by Ryan Coogler with serious muscle and style, and magisterially imagined by production designer Hannah Beachler and costume designer Ruth E Carter, Black Panther makes you rue that it took this long for a studio to try it. To date, only Anthony Mackie's Falcon in the Captain America film has a role substantial enough in the recent Marvel reboots for most audiences to remember the character's name. He plays T'Challa as a firm yet gracious ruler, with enough vulnerability to bring us a regal, affable and even relatable king. From the regal, intimidating uniforms of the all-female warrior clan known as the Dora Milaje, to the gorgeous gold-and-leather outfits donned by Lupita Nyong'o's Nakia, to the breathtaking headpieces that showcase Angela Bassett's regal hauteur, Carter has served looks that are instantly iconic. But, unfortunately, this gives Black Panther a bit of a lumbering start. It's everything I've ever desired in a live-action version of this popular superhero and yet so much more.

And then there's the sinewy Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), an American veteran who is insane about Wakanda, Wakandans, and the new King T'Challa.

It is after this event where Killmonger is introduced and Ulysses Klaue (played with devilish glee by Andy Serkis) a villainous arms deal first explored in Avengers: Age of Ultron returns. I already know that Black Panther's weight in gold at the box office will be in repeat viewings, because we just won't want this cinematic experience to end.
