Well folks, it’s nearly here. In just over 24 hours from now, most of us will be venturing into a comfortable cinema seat to witness quite possibly the best solo superhero movie ever made: Black Panther. Now, of course, film is subjective and everyone has their own opinion about films and are aloud to, but early reviews are claiming that Marvel’s latest solo outing is as close to a masterpiece as it can get. Surprised? I’m not, everything for Ryan Coogler’s movie has been phenomenal to this point, and I stopped watching new footage weeks ago.
In all honesty, for someone who stays in the know with film on a daily basis, this project was a complete success the day Coogler was announced as director and he assembled the cast that he did. There wasn’t ever a doubt in my mind about it, and I don’t think I’m the only one. He was one of the most exciting characters from Captain America: Civil War and with everything going on around us in the real world, this is the film we need right now, just as Wonder Woman was last summer.
It’s truly hard to put my thoughts into words in a post because the film is literally tomorrow night. My excitement has started to take over more than it ever has, which has evolved my words into loud mumbling and yells that express all the joy I have for this movie premiere.
Anyway, as is usual with a marketing campaign, four new clips have been released for the movie. I personally haven’t watched them, but just from the thumbnail, they all look like scenes that you might want to save for your theater experience. But hey, what do I know? Starring a ridiculously amazing cast led by Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira, Black Panther opens everywhere this Friday, February 16th.
