Wakanda, the Africa futuristic dreamworld via fictional Marvel Cinematic Universe’s comic adapted into one of the most successful hollywood investment in decades. Black Panther, opened to record box office. A movie with a largely black cast is something new to Marvel, helmed by a black director, and set in a fictional African country, where the vivid art, costume, and makeup designs were all inspired by real-world African tribal traditions. Marvel deserves a lot of credit, especially since the story and characters were creating since the 60’s. Fan’s response has been almost universally positive and enthusiastic.
The film is part of a series of movies planned by Marvel. The all-hero battles of Captain America: Civil War, and the galactic adventures of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Thor: Ragnorak, are leading up to the Infinity War saga, but for Marvel to keep putting out two or three superhero movies a year, some of them have to drop down to a smaller scale. Like Spider-Man: Homecoming, Black Panther limits the focus to a hero fighting his own local, personal battles: in this case, King T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), aka the Black Panther, facing a threat to his rule and to his technologically hyper-advanced kingdom of Wakanda.
