Black Panther is already the highest rated Marvel movie on Rotten Tomatoes

And Black Panther is no different. While no one calls it flawless - it is superhero blockbuster fare after all - its performances, direction, world building, visuals and more have all been lauded in a growing tide of reviews that should put all those alt-right efforts to tank its Rotten Tomatoes score in the dust.

Besides looking good on screen, one of the challenges of creating costumes for a Marvel film like "Black Panther" is that these pieces of art also need to be able to stand up to the rigors of battles and dynamic action scenes. A bomb goes off outside the conference and kills T'Chaka, which makes T'Challa the new King of Wakanda. "One of Black Panther's greatest triumphs is to make you forget the barrier-breaking significance of its mere existence", he wrote.

The action scenes in Black Panther are definitely a step up from what I've seen in previous Marvel movies.

Marvel Studios announced the presentation of Black Panther "Welcome to Wakanda" - a celebration of fashion inspired by the movie - on February 12, as part of New York Fashion Week. Fans are anxiously awaiting for the movie which is expected to be another Marvel box office hit. This is particularly true for T'Challa's sassy sister/tech wiz Shuri (Letitia Wright), and the head of his royal guard, Okoye (Danai Gurira), who are major scene-stealers. If she has to take that place and help do whatever she has to do, she has to do it. Coogler called him "Black Panther's version of Obi-Wan Kenobi", and a tie-back to T'Challa's father, T'Chaka. It's something he ponders until he learns that Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis), now sporting an arm cannon since "Age of Ultron", is causing trouble with the Vibranium he possesses.

He is the first actor of Ugandan origin to be nominated for the Oscars. "I thought they just did a phenomenal job of introducing the main character from this film, casting Chadwick, casting Dr. John Kani and Florence Kasumba". "I can't wait for people to hear the music on that album, man". This is pretty much standard from Marvel at this point - it's never a question of if, but how many - so stay in your seats even after the credits start to roll. Don't get us wrong, there are certainly easter eggs, references and familiar faces to spot, but for the most part, Coogler's spinoff doesn't concern itself with other outings in the MCU and is probably the least Marvel-y Marvel movie out there. Avengers 4, due May 2019, will be his fourth appearance as Black Panther, so there's room for another chapter for the character.

The average rating for Black Panther right now is an 8.6/10, while Thor: Ragnarok's score was 7.5/10 and Spider-Man: Homecoming's score was 7.7/10 in comparison.
