Kevin Feige Says Black Panther Is The Best Movie Produced By Marvel Studios Yet

If you think Black Panther is a good movie, listen to this. Fans and critics have given rave reviews to the movie already. And if that hasn’t tickled your senses, this most definitely will. The President of Marvel Studios and the de facto showrunner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe said Black Panther is the best movie produced by Marvel Studios yet.

Marvel’s final phase 3 installment before Avengers: Infinity War is Black Panther. One of the most highly anticipated movies of this year, Black Panther has already shattered several records as of this moment. It will continue doing so, given the fact that it is not even been a week since the movie released. It grossed 75.2 Million $$ on its opening day, creating the greatest record ever for a movie released in February, shattering the previous record of Deadpool. The movie is getting excellent reception from both critics and the audience alike.

And now even Kevin Feige, the Marvel Studios’ Commander-in-Chief has given his blessing to the movie.

“The movie finished, and I looked over at Ryan, I said, ‘that’s the best movie we’ve ever made,'” Feige said.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe consists of 18 different movies, I repeat, E-I-G-H-T-E-E-N. Feige has overseen some of Marvel’s greatest blockbusters on the Big Screens like Iron Man, Thor: Ragnarok, Captain America: Civil War and The Avengers. Even he claims Black Panther is better than every other Marvel movie ever to have made it to the theaters, so we have to take his words with the utmost respect and sincerity. According to Feige, the movie isn’t great because of the story or the ensemble cast. Black Panther is the greatest Marvel Studios movie to have been ever produced because of what it represents in the grander scale of things.

Feige claims Black Panther’s success could be credited to the revolutionary way the lead and the movie has been presented to the world. He goes on to add:

Clearly, you have anticipation from an audience that has never seen themselves portrayed like this before.”

“What Stan Lee and Jack Kirby did fifty years ago was pretty bold in the mid-60s to say here is a character from Africa from this African nation who’s smarter than you, who’s richer than you, who’s more technologically advanced than you and we wanted to stay true to that,” Feige said.

The film ticks off all the points in Feige and Coogler’s checklist. In Black Panther, T’Challa is a guy born and bred in Africa; leads the most technologically advanced nation (also in Africa) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Most of the technological marvels that Wakanda boasts off were created by Shuri, T’Challa’s sister and genius of the highest order. The African community was portrayed in a way Hollywood has never shown before. Almost every time, Africa is shown as a third world country that was only good at making great locations for taking photos of starving children and half-naked women on the streets. Black Panther is the first movie to have challenged that stereotype. It showed the plain white truth to the world – Africa is vast, diverse and better than the rest of the world, in ways than one couldn’t even begin to fathom. Black Panther showed Africa, the True Africa, in all its glory.

“Circumstances in the world have changed drastically since we started working on this movie four years ago,” he said. “It was relevant then. I think it’s more relevant now.”


Black Panther is currently in theaters. The official synopsis reads:

After the death of his father, T’Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as a king and as Black Panther gets tested when he’s drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.

After Black Panther, T’Challa will be next seen in Avengers: Infinity War, trading fists with Thanos and the Black Order. The movie is slated for a May 4 release date this year. The official synopsis for Infinity War reads:

Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
