81 of the film's 83 scores so far have been positive-giving Black Panther an excellent 98% overall rating.

Danai Gurira, who is a fierce general warrior named Okoye in the film, says the film was extremely emotional, yet impactful to her Zimbabwean-American roots.

But from here Black Panther spirals into a stodgy tale of internecine feuding, in which T'Challa is required to come to terms with the sins of past generations. "I'm not used to seeing so many handsome people with dark skin colors in one spot".

"My experiences when I was there on that trip eased a lot of questions that I had, a lot of pain that I had".

Most importantly, it highlights the movement and contributions the Black Panther party had on this country during a very trivial time.

Black Panther review by Paul Heath, February 2018.

"Maybe it's overdue", Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige tells The Post. "So, I want to say those two months was the most vital on that tour, in terms of creative process".

The Black Panther first entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe back in 2016 in Captain America: Civil War. The bearded South African, along with a little help from a young mercenary named Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), has managed to steal piece of indestructible metal, known as Vibranium, mined in Wakanda, which T'Challa and co. aren't too happy about.

Playing Erik was no easy ride for the Fruitvale Station star, because on top of the physical preparation he had to tap into the "pain" his character feels.

"And then, going to the continent and meeting a person that's African". "It was our duty to do the same for this film".

Coogler opens with exposition on Wakanda, a mighty African country that appears from the outside, as one Western sneers, as "Third World".

Now, in the wake of fierce American division over immigration - as well as reports of President Trump's dismissal of African nations as "s--thole countries" - it's not too hard to see the relevance in today's world.

Screen Rant got a chance to talk with Chadwick Boseman on press day, where we discussed how the film as well as T'Challa will impact communities, whether or not the film will inspire people moving forward, and where he'd like to see T'Challa go after the film. We don't have to be comic relief.

In an interview with NPR, Coogler said he'd been a fan of Lamar since he first started putting out music and that they had long planned to work together in some capacity. I was hoping they would simply create a Black Panther superhero movie and leave all the PC garbage out of it. Actors were hired at the lowest prices the market would allow, and, shockingly, they're not even given merchandizing royalties, although there are exceptions.
