You all know how I roll. I’m not one of those “Marvel can do no wrong” and all DCEU movies “Sucks” fangirls (I mean critics). I’ve hated plenty of Marvel films. I’d love to be my usual contrarian self here and tell you all that Black Panther sucks but it doesn’t. With that said please stop with the blatant lies about the “historical significance” of this movie. When did the “Oh my god this is the first black led Superhero film” and “this is such a milestone movie because of all the black people involved” garbage come from?
Marvel’s Black Panther follows the basic plot structure of the studio’s other movies (hero arises; hero faces obstacles and loses; hero finds a way to overcome said obstacles) – but there are only so many stories (back in high school literature class the number seven was mentioned), so the differences have to come, largely, from point of view.
Black Panther’s point of view is unique – a superhero who is the latest in his country’s line of hereditary monarchs – and African.
Marvel may have taken its time to bring the Black Panther to the screen, but it took the time to get it right.
