Long Story Short:
T’Challa is the rising the king of Wakanda, an African Nation beyond the world as we know it. Soon he is challenged by an outsider, who is driven by vengeance from a past that involes T’Challa’s father.
I think everyone had high expectations for Black Panthers, and I think it has delivered 90%. The one thing I was missing was more story and character development.
The premise is set, and it can go anywhere from here. I am excited to see where they take us.
As someone who has not read the comics, I am intrigued and very entertained. I will watch it a second time, because it so much fun to watch on the big screen.
I was so impressed, that it is my new favorite Marvel adaptation!
My Personal Comic Movie Adaptations Top 5:
1. Black Panther
2. Wonder Woman
4. Guardians of The Galaxy
Side Note: Not trying to join the racial discussion, but I will say this: This movie is about black empowerment and beauty. The entire cast is very sexy and graceful. At no time is talked down or negatively about Caucasians. So there shouldn’t even be a racial discussion.
