The movie is hitting theaters at midnight, and we’ll finally be able to see the highly anticipated film, which stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. Be sure to check out Black Panther, in theaters tonight at midnight! There are spoilers ahead, so read at your own risk! Click inside to see what happens after the Black Panther credits… There are two scenes after the movie ends. The first hits mid-credits. The scene takes place at the United Nations in Vienna, where T’Challa (aka Black Panther) shares with the council that Wakanda will be more open and will begin to share their knowledge and resources. The scene ends with one of the council members asking what resources they have to offer. T’Challa then smirks. Of course, this must refer to Vibranium, a very powerful material. Black Panther’s suit and Captain America’s shield are both made of Vibranium, and in addition, Vibranium is what Ultron was collecting which ultimately made Vision (played by Paul Bettany). The second scene takes place at the end of the credits in a remote hut in Wakanda. We see Bucky Barnes (the Winter Soldier) wake up and emerge out of a tent and speak to T’Challa’s sister, Shuri and thank her. During this scene, the kids of Wakanda refer him as the “White Wolf.” The last time we saw Bucky was in a mid-credits scene after Captain America: Civil War. He was in a lab in Wakanda where he agreed to be placed in cryogenic stasis. Captain America thanked T’Challa for looking after Bucky and T’Challa said he’ll be safe in Wakanda. FYI: In the comics, the “White Wolf” was actually a character named Hunter, an orphaned boy that T’Challa’s father raised. The film ends saying that Black Panther will return in Avengers: Infinity War......»»

So what do the range of positive words (at the time of this writing, the film holds a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes with 51 reviews counted) have in common? First, absolutely glowing reviews for the production design (Hannah Beachler), costumes (Ruth E. Carter), and cinematography (Rachel Morrison). Video: Kendrick Lamar & The Weeknd Bless Us With New Black Panther Song Pray For Me And the supporting cast, including Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, and villain Michael B. Jordan, are consistently lauded as standouts. While this is mostly a good thing, especially for women's representation in the world of superhero movies -- some feel Chadwick Boseman's stoic lead is in danger of being overshadowed by everyone else... See what critics had to say (below): Jason Gerrasio, Business Insider: "Like "Wonder Woman" last year, "Black Panther" is a project that fans have been waiting decades to see. And just like "Wonder Woman," it was worth the wait." Liz Braun, Toronto Sun: "Black Panther is every bit as good as you were hoping. Actually -- it's better. A terrific screenplay from Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole elevates this thing way beyond the usual boundaries of the Marvel Universe." Jake Coyle, AP: "Just as he did in the surprisingly sensational Rocky reboot "Creed," Coogler hasn't reinvented the genre so much as electrified it with a new perspective and a rare talent for marrying naturalistic character development with spectacle muscle." Haleigh Foutch, Collider: "Black Panther isn't just a crowd-pleasing superhero movie (though it is that for sure), it's a vital moment in cinema history and a heartfelt, thoughtful exploration of the scars of colonialism and the hope for healing." Manohla Dargis, The NY Times: "It's important to the movie's politics and myth-building that he is surrounded by a phalanx of women, among them a battalion of women warriors called the Dora Milaje. These aren't moviedom's irritatingly token strong chicks, the tough babes with sizable biceps and skills but no real roles." Robbie Collin, Telegraph: "Black Panther seems to overcome the genre's long-standing neuroses around creating rounded, exciting roles for women by just getting on with it." Alonso Duralde, TheWrap: "Black Panther does such a great job introducing the fascinating supporting characters in his orbit that it can barely find time to dig into its purported protagonist." Marc Bernardin, Nerdist: "As a nerd and as a black man, I've been waiting for this movie for my entire life, whether I knew it or not. The fact that Black Panther gets so much right, but one crucial thing wrong, is both thrilling and maddening." David Ehrlich, IndieWire: "In making a movie that so lucidly allows one group of people to see themselves on screen, Coogler has created the first Marvel movie in which anyone can see themselves on screen. That's an accomplishment all viewers can appreciate — one that gives new depth to the overarching themes of the MCU, finally grounding this franchise with the kind of stakes that it needs to support its cosmic scale." Jamie Broadnax, BlackGirlNerds: "I left the theater wanting to see this movie at least 10 more times. 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." [Image via Marvel.].....»»

The trailer for the Marvel Studios flick dropped during the game between Alabama and Georgia, following Kendrick Lamar‘s halftime show performance. It features Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa’s (aka Black Panther) enemies Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) as they try to bring him down as the King of Wakanda. Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king – and Black Panther – is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. 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. The Ryan Coogler-directed film also stars Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, and Forest Whitaker.
