Black Panther is about to hit the theaters and sweep the Box office of its feet. It not only sports an all Black Cast, it is also one of the most anticipated movies of not just the year but the Decade! The entire cast and plot line is said to be spot on and the story is also said to tie in into the larger MCU Infinity War crossover. The Soul Stone will soon be seen in the hands of Wakanda. But it is not Thanos that the Black Panther should be worried about. The Mad Titan is the least of their worries right now for it is Erik Killmonger and Ulysses Klaue that are the big bad of the day. If the Wakandans should be afraid of anyone, it’s them.
The story of Black Panther is simple, straightforward and engaging, all at the same time. The movie will see Black Panther aka T’Challa, first introduced to the MCU in Captain America: Civil War, defend his country against the likes of Erik Killmonger and Ulysses Klaue, who have set their eyes on the rich, unknown treasures that lie beneath the super advanced African Nation.
And how can anyone mention Black Panther and Wakanda without even mentioning the Dora Milaje, the elite Wakandan all-female bodyguard squad of the King of Wakanda aka Black Panther? Marvel is known to execute massive marketing drives to give their upcoming movies a final facelift. They did just that with Black Panther.
A fight scene between Ulysses Klaue played by Andy Serkis and the Elite Dora Milaje forces has been officially released online and it is awesome. If you want to keep the suspense as it is, we would advise you from refraining to watch this clip. If you are one of those ‘too impatient for Gods’ sake’ people (like me), enjoy your heart out.
Of course, until now all we have seen is bits and pieces of the larger video. But to see a finished part of the scene so close to the release date does make us super hyped and excited. Disney does know how to play the fan hype to their advantage. The scene will be one of the highlights of Black Panther when it releases about two weeks later.
One of the highlights of the Infinity War sequence was Daniel Gurira’s Okoye’s Slow-Mo shot in the ‘Battle of Wakanda’ scene. Daniel Gurira, of The Walking Dead fame, is all set to become the next big thing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Gurira’s on-screen presence and aura is testimony enough.
The ticket pre-sales for Black Panther are already breaking records as we speak. The movie is already poised to have one of the greatest openings in MCU history. All attempts to defame it aside, Black Panther will surely be one of the greatest Box Office successes of the season. Do not let some disgruntled fans make you think otherwise. We are still not sure if it is the DCEU fans or some Marvel fans posing as DC fans that are doing this (maybe white supremacists that just can’t get their head around the fact that there is a thing called an All Black Cast for a superhero movie in Hollywood now), but rest assured that Black Panther will blow your minds away.
Black Panther releases on February 16th. The official synopsis for Black Panther reads:
After the death of his father, T’Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king.
