Marvel Studios earlier this week released a batch of high-resolution images for Black Panther one of my highly anticipated movies of 2018.
Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa or Black Panther was one of my favorite parts of Captain America: Civil War and in 2018 we finally get to see the character in his first solo movie. In Black Panther we find T’Challa has returned home to the isolated and advanced nation of Wakanda after his father’s death to assume his rightful place as king, but when an old enemy returns T’Challa’s place on the throne is put into question.
When I heard that Black Panther would be in Civil War I wasn’t sure what to expect having never read the comic, but by the time the Civil War movie had ended I was more then on board and ready to see the Black Panther movie then and their.
I’m looking forward to learning more about the character and to be honest the first character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Iron Man that looks exciting to me. That’s not to say I haven’t enjoyed what Marvel has done with Captain America, Ant-Man, Guardians, Doctor Strange and Thor, but Black Panther reminds me a little of Batman in some ways and I’m a huge fan of Batman.
