The rambling below contains spoilers to Black Panther. — Just how angry is Ryan Coogler, If he is at all? That’s been one of the questions on my mind having seen ‘Black Panther’. Marvel gave Coogler the keys to the Black Panther vehicle and he took them to the promised land, delivering an incredibly personal film, opening up his soul to reveal a whirlwind of heartache, frustration and fury.

'Black Panther' review

My biggest fear going into ‘Black Panther’ was that director Ryan Coogler would serve up a righteous narrative fuelled by Fela’s ‘Water No Get Enemy’. A story riding milking the idea of the untouched African country, untainted by European occupiers and firmly in control of its destiny. Conceived by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1966, the cynic in me regards Blank Panther and his kingdom Wakanda as a mere utopia for the white gaze and an antithesis of the distressing dysfunction of the continent. This sentiment informs this paragraph, which I penned weeks before I actually saw the film.

'Black Panther' Review

The Black Panther character was first introduced to the Cinematic Universe in 2016’s “Captain America: Civil War”, with “42” and “Get On Up” actor Chadwick Boseman in the role of Marvel’s prominent African American superhero. This new solo movie, which picks-up just days after the events of “Civil War“, has a distinct feel and style which separates it from all of the studio’s previous releases. Is that good or bad?

Black Panther (2018) Movie Review

Jane Tomato reviews Black Panther for @FilmGob — Don't believe the hype, Black Panther is a stodgy tale of internecine feuding, like Thor but more African looking. An insipid, soulless, and overproduced bore in which the superhero T'Challa doesn't get to do much of the 'jump around beating-up bad guys' thing that Marvel delightfully fed us over the past 10 years. The giddy exuberance is gone, with no Baby Groot in sight. What is here is Michael B Jordan, doing that angry face he does.

Marvel's latest trailer rouses excitement in ways we are least afforded in this day of superhero fandom. — "I have seen Gods fly. I've seen men build weapons that I can't even imagine. I've seen aliens drop from the sky, but I have never seen anything like this." It is THIS, Martin Freeman's character refers to as Marvel's latest standalone, Black Panther - directed and co-written by Ryan Coogler (Creed, Fruitvale Station) and set in the most prominent Bantu African nations run by non-white male and females. Need I say more?
