For the very first time in history an African American superhero has taken stage on a movie name Black Panther, that will soon come out in movie theaters February 16, 2018.
Fans were first introduced to Black Panther in the movie Captain America: Civil War, but now he will be the center stage. The Black Panther’s character name is T’Challa. He is known in the story as the king and costumed protector of the fictional African nation Wakanda. The details about the movie Black Panther have been described by executive producer Nate Moore: “Black Panther takes place right after the events of civil war, so T’Challa’s father has just been killed, he has returned home to Wakanda, and T’Challa has to navigate potentially becoming the new ruler of this nation. He never intended to become the king for years because he figured his dad would be around for a long time. T’Chaka’s death is in a lot of ways, the catalyst for everything that’s happening in Black Panther.”
In addition, the writer of Black Panther explained the importance of the movie being played on the big screen: “Black Panther is a historic opportunity to be part of something important and special, particularly at a time when African Americans are affirming their identities while dealing with vilification and dehumanization. The image of a black hero on this scale is just really exciting.”
It has not been the Black Panther’s first time being debuted “Super Hero.” He was in an episode of the Fantastic Four cartoon back in 1994. He was also on the 90’s X-Men show for a short time. He too appears in Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Also he had his own Prime Time cartoon on BET for a while. Generally, Black Panther has been part of almost every major Marvel Super team.
The movie has not yet been released and it has already generated more buzz than any other movie thus far. One of the main reasons many people believe the movie Black Panther will be a hit is because of it’s amazing cast. It is also a movie that has a blend of culture, politics, and technology unlike any other superhero film.
