Critical and celebrity reactions to Black Panther after Monday's premiere were about as good as could be expected, with reviewers hailing the movie as "iconic" and "astonishing".
Speaking with Screen Rant, he said: "Without getting into specifics, what I'll say is something that I kind of, you know, what I struggled with at first is the difference between T'Challa in the comic books versus T'Challa in the MCU". While Thor: Ragnarok is basically a comedy, Black Panther is about a completely independent African nation debating if it should use its secretly powerful influence in the outside world - and if so, how should it be used?
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.
Actor Chadwick Boseman says Black Panther is "ground-breaking" as it is a rare film to feature a black superhero in the lead. And though there's now no mention of the sequel's length, we imagine it'll be much, much longer than Black Panther when all is said and done. Most importantly, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will definitely benefit from the presence of King T'Challa and his kingdom of Wakanda well down the line.
As with its balance between political discourse and comic-book superheroics, the movie rings true with family dynamics that can change history. For Ryan Coogler, the job of directing Black Panther wasn't something he had to pitch and pursue as much as it was a role he was approached for by the powers that be within the studio. "In an interview I heard someone say 'Get global on your phone and call your mum, ' [then] important stuff, literally, happened that night". Out of the fight scenes, my favorites were Dora Milaje general Okoye (Danai Gurira) taking on a 50+ crew of antagonists single-handedly, and the ultimate fight between Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and T'Challa. "I was coming off the red carpet for Get On Up and my agent was like, 'You've gotta get on the phone.' And the insane thing is I didn't even have global calling on my phone until that morning". It would only make sense to bring in a Shuri movie at this point. And his reasons were so pure and meaningful to me that I wanted to see the response from the public. I'd give them that. Quite frankly, the experience is indescribable.
I plan to see it again opening weekend.
Black Panther opens February 16 in theaters. In the mix of all of this is a large supporting cast that also features a number of strong female roles including Oscar victor Lupita Nyong'o as the crafty Nakia, whose duties are complicated by her relationship with T'Challa; Danai Gurira as Okoye, the kickass head of the all-female Special Forces; the delightful Letitia Wright as T'Challa's technical wizard of a younger sister; and Angela Bassett as their Queen Mother, Ramonda.
