Marvel’s “Black Panther,” the first black superhero movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, had its world premiere last night.
While the reviews are under embargo until February 6 (ten days before the movie comes out), the initial reactions on social media are in: people love it. Not only did the early reactions agree that it’s one of the best movies in MCU, they also loved that it’s the first movie in the saga to have a social message.
One of the biggest takeaways from the movie is its inclusiveness and thoughtfulness about its significance to pop culture. It’s not a small thing to be a movie of this scale that stars a black cast.
The MCU has a villain problem: They tend to be one-note and boring, with little motivation to really get into the story. But people who saw “Black Panther” said that Michael B. Jordan’s Erik Killmonger is the best villain since Loki, and has motivations that will get you emotionally invested.
