The Marvel movie “Black Panther” premiered in theaters February 16th. The action movie is a based on the superhero who first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1966. With the  character created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Jack Kirby, the movie has had a lot of hype in the public because of its scope, along with an expansive cast of black actors, a black production crew and a black director.  

Fans have been raving over the major African theme that is the center of the story. The movie had a budget of $200 million and because of strong box office appeal its currently projected to make more than $1 billion.

The buzz to see the film was so substantial that it was impossible to go to the theater and get a ticket for the show the same day. Many of the viewers came dressed in traditional African attire to honor the African pride that is shown in the movie. Other fans came in “Black Panther” costumes to support the record-breaking box-office hit.

The premise of the film is simple and contains all the traditional elements of a classic superhero story- however the social and political stance the movie takes is anything but ordinary. Killmonger, played by actor Michael Jordan, wanted the empire of Wakanda to share its plethora of resources and advanced technology with the world, so the oppressed people have utilities to fight back against their oppressors. Viewers could interpret the movie as saying that all the wealthy nations of the world need to join together to help the underdeveloped countries across the globe.

“There was really good action and the jokes weren’t forced. And I’m definitely going to call white people ‘colonizers’ like they did in the movie,” junior Adam Cheese said.

The movie not only was able to make a real life adaptation of the superhero marvel comic, but was able to integrate a political message that all viewers could take home with them and add to their moral compass. Wakanda forever!
