My Excitement for ‘Black Panther’

It’s only four days until the monumental Black Panther comes out and I am beyond ecstatic. Usually around this time of year I’m just waiting until April to get the newest Star Wars movie on Blu-Ray but this year the incredible blockbusters are coming early with this February release of Marvel’s Black Panther and I couldn’t be happier.

Now, while there is a huge cultural significance to this movie that’s not the only reason why I’m excited to see this film. Marvel has been cranking out enjoyable films for the past ten years and the incredible thing is not only do we get at least three Marvel movies a year now but the movies are actually really, really good as well. The last two Marvel films that have come out (Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok) have both graced my top five favorite Marvel movies list and I have a feeling Black Panther won’t be an exception.

The commercials are awesome, the advertising for the film is perfect, and I simply can’t wait to see the beautiful world of Wakanda that Black Panther comes from.

So, here are the things I’m most excited to see in Marvel’s new juggernaut, Black Panther.

The Action

Chadwick Boseman in Captain America: Civil War (2016)

When Black Panther appeared in Captain America: Civil War I was already excited. His suit was amazingly sleek (and black,) it could deflect bullets because it was made completely out of vibranium (awesome!) and while the suit possessed a simple design its beauty was impeccable. And his fighting style was so amazing! The martial arts form that he used felt native to his country, Wakanda, while also making his character shine.

Now he has his own film and I know for a fact that the action is going to be off the chain! I’m just excited to see exactly how off the chain it will be. And the great thing is, it won’t just be Black Panther who will be handing out the incredible fight scenes. We’ve also got the Dora Milaje, the all-female bodyguards of the King, as well as other tribes and the movie’s main villain who are definitely going to get in on the piece of the action. *squeal* I’m so excited I could practically scream.

I can’t wait to see Black Panther’s vibranium claws slicing and dicing in IMAX. It’s going to be awesome!
