Marvel's BLACK PANTHER Relaunch Sends T'Challa Into Space

In the wake of the outpouring of support for Black Panther, Coogler posted a letter on the Marvel Studios Twitter thanking the crew and the fans. Black Panther may have cemented that status with the rest of the world. With a majority black cast, it portrays black people and culture from a place of power and self-reliance, not as slaves, the help, or the winners of a state championship. Whoever is king of Wakanda wears a ring that gives them enhanced athletic abilities, and kings have used these abilities throughout history to defend Wakanda. It is home to a literal mountain of an element called Vibranium, which is extremely valuable and has tons of scientific applications (read: superhero gadgets). And our team was made up [of] awesome people from all over the world who believed in this story.

For some comic context, in the original marvel comic books the White Wolf is a white child adopted by King T'Challa's father. We want Nakia to ride in on a Rhino and to be wearing an unbelievable headpiece like T'Challa's mum, and for King T'Challa to be ceremoniously shirtless, if possible. Two years ago, he designed a cover of Esquire. He is quickly thrown into a conflict which puts the nation of Wakanda - and the entire world - at risk.

"I loved this movie and I know it will inspire people of all backgrounds to dig deep and find the courage to be heroes of their own stories". I would definitely say, "Worth the money".

"I hope, whenever the time is right, if it's meant to happen, I would happily do it". Scientific advancements are being made, people look happy in their daily lives, and demeanors are friendly.

Freezing Rain Expected Early Tuesday, Winter Weather Advisory Continues
Parts of Travis County are in moderate to severe drought, and Williams said this rain could improve those conditions. On Tuesday , thunderstorms are expected to shift east along the Interstate 35 corridor through Wednesday afternoon.

Those clamoring for an all-female Marvel film will likely get their wish, and Okoye (Danai Gurira), Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o), and Shuri (Letitia Wright) will lead the Wakandan delegation.

Black Panther, though, surely received an additional boost from positive buzz, rave reviews - it now has a 97% rating on reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes - and huge social media awareness. "Is that why nobody seems to remember the 3 very successful Blade movies?".

Meanwhile, Michelle Obama sent congratulations to the makers of the superhero movie after a weekend of blockbuster box-office takings.

And like "Roots", which came into the public consciousness toward the end of Jim Crow and kicked off a needed national dialogue on race, "Black Panther" debuts at a time when we are grappling with identity politics evidenced by instructive racial flashpoints.
