Marvel Studios presents “Black Panther,” the story of T’Challa, a young African prince who takes on the mantle of King and Super Hero, and the centuries-old legacy that comes with it. Long known for its revolutionary creative vision, Marvel Comics has introduced its audiences to a diverse roster of Super Heroes since 1939, most notably with the groundbreaking Black Panther character that made its first appearance in “Fantastic Four Vol. 1” Issue 52, published in 1966. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Black Panther was soon firmly established as a fan favorite, crossing racial and cultural lines.
Marvel Cinematic Universe welcomed T’Challa/Black Panther and introduced him to its massive fan base in “Captain America: Civil War,” the record-breaking hit film that plotted the Avengers against one another. Introducing a Super Hero from a country in the middle of Africa that has been shrouded in secrecy for centuries and then pulling back those layers to find this highly-advanced nation that surpasses anything on the planet.” Marvel Studios’ “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 take his rightful place as King. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s 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.
We really loved this movie. For me it felt similar to Wonder Woman with its hidden world and culture. For the kids they felt it definitely had an Avenger feel to it. But no matter what it was captivating and thrilling and there was never a dull moment. Awesome movie – we highly recommend!
