Marvel's Black Panther - just how much bite does it have?

Marvel's Black Panther - just how much bite does it have?

While the script for Black Panther was written long before the "shithole countries" conversation began, it is hard to ignore what the movie is saying about the role that superpowers have to play on the global stage. So if she has to, you know, she is royalty.

Because it is also about Wakanda, Black Panther is inherently a story about Colonialism and a vision of Africa that was allowed to thrive without the imposition of white culture and violence.

But then, all of Black Panther, shot by Rachel Morrison-who was the cinematographer on Coogler's 2013 debut Fruitvale Station, and who has just been nominated for an Academy Award for Mudbound-is simply splendid to look at, a marvel of jewel tones and shimmery grays with lots of natural greenery thrown in.

Speaking of Bucky Barnes, the Winter Soldier was last seen seeking sanctuary and asylum in Wakanda, the fictional utopia in which Black Panther takes place, and though Sebastian Stan's anti-hero spends much of the film in a cryogenic chamber, he'll be resurrected in time for Avengers: Infinity War.

As I say in my video review (click the link above to watch), Chadwick Boseman slays it as T'Challa, the young African prince who becomes king of the secluded nation of Wakanda after the death of his beloved father.

"Black Panther" might have the spectacle and action to immediately dazzle, but it's the pathos and thought-provoking exploration of the above that really makes it resonate.

When a Wakandan weapon is stolen by Ulysses Klaue (played to campy delight by Andy Serkis), T'Challa sees this as a way to get justice for all the Wakandan lives taken by Klaue.

Black Panther is readying itself to pounce into cinemas - and anticipation is at an all-time high. The film might, arguably, be the most universally accepted movie among the Black community that, exhausted of white savior flicks, slave narratives, and stereotypical depictions, feels we're finally getting the representation we've been craving on the big screen.

"The world's going to start over and I'm going to be on top", growls Killmonger.

He said: 'I'm just trying to stay in shape for as long as I can - and get paid to do it!' It would only make sense to bring in a Shuri movie at this point. I'd give them that. Its themes including the importance of a wealthy nation taking on responsibility for the betterment of the whole world especially hit home for me in the Trumpian age of America First. Quite frankly, the experience is indescribable. T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), not yet a king, is riding in his hovercraft shuttle with spy and former paramour Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o) and General Okoye (Danai Gurira), leader of the Dora Milaje, the Panther's personal honor guard. We understand who he his and exactly what he wants.

Additionally, Black-Panther-inspired capsule collections from Brother Vellies, Douriean Fletcher, and Josh Bennett will also be on display at the event, each becoming available for purchase on their respective websites on February 13.
