Black Panther actor, Chadwick Boseman shares story behind hit movie

She tweeted, "Congrats to the entire #blackpanther team!"

"It was seen as a somewhat of an answer to ... that discourse of the kind of - especially black representation - representation of people of color in these big culture phenomenons and franchises", she said. Overall though this film was very successful in making the audience care; it has been a long time since I was so invested emotionally in the story of a superhero movie.

Iger took to Twitter to congratulate the cast and crew of Marvel's Black Panther for the overwhelming success of the film and the tremendous cultural impact that it's had so far.

Less conflicted are bad guys Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) and Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan). Tested by powerful outside forces and a risky enemy, T'Challa must fight for the fate of his beloved country and the entire world.

That said, big names aren't the only ones loving the Marvel flick.

Walking out of the theater, I felt fulfilled as a black viewer and as a woman, which rarely happens simultaneously with mainstream movies.

Scientists Say New Tests Can Detect Autism In Children
Researchers in a new study discovered a blood test could determine with as much as 90 percent accuracy whether a child has autism. This attempt is weakened by a small sample size, possible overfitting of data and a lack of comparison groups.

With Black Panther hitting the $242 million mark, it just barely edged out Star Wars: The Last Jedi which netted $241 in ticket sales in its first four days in theaters. It's trying to answer critics of an industry struggling with diversity and reeling from the #Oscarsowhite controversy, but at the same time relying more on the global audience for ticket sales.

The gamble, if you're inclined to call it that, paid off in a big way as Black Panther shattered box office records and outdated misconceptions about what audiences want in a big budget blockbuster. It's the women behind the catsuit-clad African king, however, who are the movie's true marvels. However, when it comes to Killmonger, there are all the makings of a truly great cinematic villain that not only stands as a genuine threat to the hero but also acts as a compelling figure on their own. "We wanted to do it justice, and we have a studio with Disney and leaders with Alan Horn and Bog Iger, who supported us a hundred percent".

While black leads in TV and film have grown over the years, there is still a lack of positive minority images coming from Hollywood, which is why many are stressing the importance of having young black kids see the movie. Traditionally, African-American films haven't done as well overseas, but "Black Panther" star Chadwick Boseman may help boost interest in China. "They were really engaged and interacting with the film, so it was good to see".

According to comScore, 37 percent of ticket buyers were African American.

"For so many people, television and movies may be the only way they understand people who aren't like them".

Not only was the acting and directing great in this movie, but the plot and writing of the movie was exceptional as well. Let us know what you think down in the comments section below!
