Black Panther – Wakanda and Marvel forever

A week after its release, Black Panther has stormed the movie landscape as well as the box office. 

Over the first four days it earned $427 million (£306 million) worldwide and shattered records by being the fifth highest opening film and the highest in the month of February.

The latest instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) takes us to the fictional African nation of Wakanda.

As a fan it was great to see the nation that had been whispers so far in the universe.

The CGI and the cinematography were one of the best in any MCU film.

Black Panther/ King T’challa was most previously in Captain America: Civil War and intrigued me as a character who I knew would take the future films by storm.

Chadwick Boseman is the king of the Avengers.

The main story is after the events of Civil War, T’challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns to his homeland and must question whether his nation should come out of the shadows.

The main antagonist of the film is Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) who is the best MCU villain since Loki and hopefully this will be beat byThanos in Avengers: Infinity War.

Michael B. Jordan thrives in his villain role.

What makes these films amazing is that they are good enough to stand on their own and then watch as a collective.

Disney and Marvel have a formula that DC can not imitate.

I can not wait for the upcoming Infinity War which is out in the summer.

Black Panther is in cinemas now.
