Here’s What You Need to Know Before Watching Black Panther
The highly anticipated Marvel movie “Black Panther” released on Friday, 16th of February. The trailers, sneak peeks, and pictures had all the comic fans beyond excited and people are rushing towards the nearest theater to watch this superhero movie. But if you have not been following the Marvel Cinematic Universe as religiously as some, we have some pointers for you so you do not feel overwhelmed or confused while watching the movie.
1. Not just a superhero
Black Panther is the superhero name of the character T’Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman. But the character is not just a superhero that has no life of his own. He is actually the King of Wakanda, the kingdom where he lives. He took over the title after his father, King T’Chaka, tragically died in the attack of the UN in Captain America: Civil War. He has major responsibilities, maybe even more than any other character of MCU.
Wakanda is the kingdom that Black Panther is the King of. It is a fictional city based on some cities in Africa and according to the comics, it is the most technologically advanced city in the world. It sits on top of the largest deposit of vibranium, the metal used to create Captain America’s iconic shield.
3. Eric Killmonger
Eric Killmonger, played by Michael B Jordan, is the main villain who was exiled from Wakanda. He is intelligent and the only one capable enough to engage in physical combat with Black Panther because he trained vigorously for years to get revenge.
4. Strong women
Apart from amazing black representation, the movie also has strong and powerful women characters. Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira play warriors of the Wakandan special forces called Dora Milaje that consists of women only, while Angela Bassett plays the role of Ramonda, the Queen mother.
5. Captain America
The last we saw of Captain America was in Captain America: Civil War where he went to Wakanda with his best friend Bucky because Black Panther agreed to provide protection. With this movie, we are all asking the same question, where is Steve Rogers? With Bucky in Wakanda, will we see him making a comeback?
Klaw made his first appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron as a character that deals arms on the black market and also has his illegal hands on vibranium.
Letitia Wright plays Shuri, T’Challa’s younger sister and another amazing character. What makes her so unique in MCU is that her IQ level is higher than anyone else, including Tony Stark who is the resident genius. Not anymore though, since we have another supergenius in the mix now. She is also one hell of a fighter as every woman in this movie seems to be.
