Last week I attended the world premiere of Black Panther in Los Angeles. I’m blessed to be one the first people in the world to see the film and I must say it was purposeful, kinetic, and explosive.
I enjoyed Black Panther the film displayed the importance of many life lessons and principles we all should live by and that having the support of family is everything. Family can be the source of empowerment. Black Panther shed light on the importance of loyalty, faith, that being my brother’s keeper is the true meaning of love and support for one another. The costumes were all out the best I’ve seen in a long time. Welcome to Wakanda the landscape was beautiful some scenes we’re breath-taking and just phenomenal as far as exploration. Black Panther delivers above and beyond when it comes to action and at times a little humor! Wakanda felt like a place of reality where the unity importance of shined.
Folks I have my tickets and I hope you have yours or plan to purchase them soon Black Panther is a must-see in theaters on the big screen.
Before you head out to see Black Panther I recommend watching Captain America Civil War for a little background. Here are a few facts about Black Panther:
1) The Black Panther character was introduced in July 1966.
2) Black Panther is the first black superhero in “mainstream” comics.
3) Due to a meteorite crash in Wakanda, the country has a rare mineral resource called Vibranium (Captain America’s shield is a mix of Vibranium and steel)
4) Wakanda is the most technologically advanced country on earth and it has never been colonized by any European nation.
5) Dora Milaje is the elite warrior women who protect Black Panther. They are also known as the Adored Ones/Midnight Angels
6) Black Panther is Faster than Wolverine and Captain America, he can run up to 50 MPH.
7) Black Panther is immune from all diseases, he is the richest man in the Marvel universe, his suit is bulletproof, and his superpowers include hearing, sight, smell, and strength.
Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, with Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay.
Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to take his rightful place as King. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

Loved it so much when I saw a sneak preview here in London that I am taking my friends with me to watch it again! Love your thoughts on this 🙂
I tried my best to keep it simple and not allow the excitement overwhelm me especially knowing I had cast interviews to sharing in addition to this post.
Wow! One, how exciting was it to be able to attend the premier? Two, I have been bouncing up and down forever waiting for this movie and your pot just hyped me up even more!
