The women in Black Panther have powerful and fierce roles portraying Queen’s of their society. Angela Bassett, a queen in real life plays the beautiful character of Ramonda and looked nothing short of greatness at the premiere.   

This new Marvel film follows “Captain America: Civil War” after numerous attempts of trying to get a Black Panther movie made for over 20 years. In case you have no idea what has happened in previous Marvel films, here’s some background knowledge. Chadwick Boseman who plays Black Panther, is King of the most technologically advanced African country on Marvel’s earth, Wakanda. The Black Panther is a skilled fighter and has abnormally fast speed, reflexes, and senses which pretty much makes him kick butt. This is the first time Black Panther has made the big screen and Marvel’s first film to feature a black superhero but there has also been said to be “political controversy” as it is a reflection of today’s society. More importantly, the film was named “bold, beautiful, and intense” by managing editor of Fandango, Erik Davis.

To sum up the appreciation and praises of the film, Black Panther is going to be a hit and something you don’t want to miss! Be sure to get your tickets early because this is Black Excellence at it’s finest and a time for the black community to celebrate. Catch the soundtrack for the film co-produced by Kendrick Lamar with songs featuring SZA and Future out February 9th!
