Black Panther reviews

The embargo for Black Panther reviews is up, and the praise is nearly universal for Marvel Studios’ latest film. Ryan Coogler‘s ambitious, expansive film with a majority-black cast is promising to be a cultural phenomenon, with early tracking suggesting Black Panther could break box office records. Anticipation is high for the comic book movie starring Chadwick Boseman as the titular hero, which has already outsold all other superhero movies in pre-sale tickets, and accumulated even more buzz with rapturous social media reactions to early screenings. Could the movie possibly live up to the hype and set the standard for more diverse blockbusters to follow?

Below, see what critics thought in our Black Panther reviews round-up.

Black Panther junket

Yesterday, I had the chance to attend Marvel Studios’ Black Panther junket in Beverly Hills. We’ve already featured one article from one of the interviews I conducted while I was there, and more are on the way, but in the meantime, I wanted to share some of the highlights from the press conference that featured all of the key cast members, producer Kevin Feige, and writer/director Ryan Coogler.

Traditionally, press conferences like these can feel pretty by-the-numbers. The questions from the assembled reporters tend to be boring things like “If you could play any other Marvel superhero, who would it be?” But this one was notable for the way Coogler and his cast spoke about the female perspective and impact on this film, and I thought what they said was worth sharing.

Black Panther may be coming for Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s crown as the Marvel movie with the most thrilling fight sequences.

But things go wrong and it leads to one of the most kinetic, thrilling fight sequences we’ve seen in a Marvel movie yet.

Lupita Nyong’o Interview

As a recurring player in the Star Wars movies, Lupita Nyong’o is no stranger to geeky fandom. Apparently, though, Black Panther is on another level entirety. When asked which experience has been more intense, she doesn’t even hesitate – it’s Black Panther.

She’s seen the #BlackPantherSoLit hashtag and the swell of excitement that follows every new announcement. And speaking to us on set last year, she made it clear she’s working hard to live up to the hype, filling us in on the intense training and serious thought that’s gone into becoming the character of Nakia.

She also dropped a few spare hints about Nakia’s dilemma in the film, and the movie’s understanding of its female characters – though she stopped short of revealing too much about the relationships within the movie.

Black Panther Featurette - Danai Gurira as Okoye

Black Panther doesn’t hit theaters for a little over a month, but the movie is already breaking records by selling more advance tickets in its first day of sales than any other Marvel Cinematic Universe title that came before it. This looks like it will be an even bigger movie than some have speculated, and the more footage we see from Chadwick Boseman‘s first solo big screen outing as the superhero, the cooler it looks.

A new Black Panther featurette has arrived online, this time focusing on two specific warriors of Wakanda. There’s Okoye, played by The Walking Dead star Danai Guriria (seen above), and Nakia, played by 12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong’o. The featurette not only provides some key details about each of their characters, but shows them kicking ass in the secretive African stronghold of Wakanda. Read More »
