'Black Panther' Is A MUST-SEE Film

Most impressively, the dialogue boldly goes to places you rarely see any blockbuster go, let alone a Marvel movie.

"Black Panther", the new black Marvel superhero movie, won rave reviews on Tuesday with critics praising both its adventure and its portrayal of a majestic Africa.

It is set in the fictional African nation of Wakanda and expand on the storyline that was first introduced in Captain America: Civil War of how T'Challa becomes the Black Panther.

Interior CS Fred Matiang'i later claimed the coalition had planned a massacre and that some media houses were aware. Two opposition figures, who took prominent roles in the "swearing-in" ceremony have also been arrested.

USA Today said that along with the fantastical elements of the film and its James Bond-style spycraft, "Black Panther" is extremely grounded "dealing with the consequences of age-old colonialism and exploring isolation at a time when actual countries are building borders rather than breaking them down". However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. "The only difference between a hero and a villain is that the villain chooses to use that power in a way that is selfish and hurts other people".

Still, it's the trio of Letitia Wright's Shuri - who steals every scene she's in with a winning combination of spunky confidence and intelligence - Lupita Nyong'o as the conflicted Wakandan spy Nakia, and Danai Gurira who leave the biggest impression.

But this superb cast doesn't have a weak link.

In an update late Thursday, the National Transportation Safety Board said it has spoken to four witnesses who raised the concerns. Chuck Fleischmann told The Indianapolis Star he was standing with a cup of coffee when the train hit the truck, throwing him.

Superhero movies have long needed this kind of representation in terms of men and women of color, and for black audiences, Black Panther will undoubtedly be as culturally significant in the way it addresses subjects of identity, race and gender as Wonder Woman was to female fans. Veterans Angela Bassett and Forest Whitaker bring presence and gravitas as Queen Ramonda and Zuri respectively, while Winston Duke's tribal leader M'Baku brings some unexpected yet very welcome laughs while exuding self-pride. "It's hard for a good man to be king", his father tells him. "Black actors that I could identify with, that look like me on screen".

Let's not wait too long for a return trip.
