'Black Panther' results in call to action for activists

And I'm sure it's gonna have the exact same effect when Captain Marvel comes out, and then the Black Widow movie comes out. One of the maps prominently displayed is a map of Africa with a little pinpoint to the whereabouts of Wakanda. Even more awesome will be seeing T'Challa travel through space in this galactic adventure.

If you stuck around for the mid-credit scene (as you always should with Marvel movies), you will have noticed that King T'Challa rocked up to the United Nations to announce his intentions to share Wakanda's resources-AKA technology, vibranium, and a warrior army of fierce females.

While T'Challa may be the one who is heading Marvel's latest blockbuster Black Panther, it was his younger sister, Shuri, who many agree was a standout character.

But while fans of Black Panther might have high hopes for the villains continued presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, director Ryan Coogler recently revealed that option was never considered. Equal parts modern and historic, it tells a story that is both Shakespearean and Disneyesque, showcasing a black society untouched by colonization and light years ahead of the rest of the world. Black Panther had also remained close with the members of the Fantastic Four and Captain America, who he sided with during the superhero civil war.

"Black Panther" and its powerful dose of images rooted in African culture and Xhosa, the South African language, will have a lasting and tremendous impact on our national conscience.

Rain ends Friday night, but who sees snow on Saturday?
After a couple days of warm temperatures, temperatures return to subfreezing levels for most overnight tonight . Similarly, Philadelphia has only managed 0.7 inches of snow since January 4, spread among three separate days.

"T'Challa has a life of his own-he's full of personality and charisma". Events force T'Challa and General Okoye (Gurira) commander of the Dora Milaje-Wakandan special forces-to trust and team up with outsider C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross (Freeman), to prevent Killmonger from using Wakanda to start the next world war. So, I guess, the question is: "when can we have Black Panther 2?" This has already been proven not to be true, but Black Panther can not possibly be ignored. I watched the film a couple of days ago and damn near got brought to tears.

I give this PG-13 film 3.7 stars out of 5.

Black Panther's success extends beyond America's borders.

Black Panther moviegoers showed out in droves over the weekend to view the Marvel film starring Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa, Lupita Nyong'o as bad ass spy and love interest Nakia and Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, to name a few. Now go have some fun at the movies.
