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.
Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther has begun production.
Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, Prince T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns home to Wakanda to take his place as King.
The Marvel Studios production also stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett and Forest Whitaker. Coogler directs from a script he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole.
Marvel’s Black Panther is slated to premiere on February 16th, 2018. Further details follow…
