Although the young filmmaker only had two movies under his belt, "Fruitvale Station" and "Creed", he excelled at "Black Panther", and I'm thrilled Marvel didn't contact anyone else for the job.

Supermarket Tesco has been criticised online for failing to correctly label a Black Panther ensemble. But, with Black Panther doing huge business at the box office, and Disney looking to launch its own streaming service in the very near future, perhaps some kind of Black Panther spinoff isn't beyond the realm of possibility? African American actors come in second with only 9.8 percent.

In its first three days after opening, "Black Panther" took in $201.8 million.

The passion and authenticity of creating and expressing the fictional nation of Wakanda, a nation where black men and women are at the heights of innovation and technology, is apparent throughout the entire film.

"Don't even try-you know you've seen Black Panther", Capehart said, laughing.

"I'm going back, I'm going back", Holder said.

The outfit was supposed to be a nod to T'Challa, the main character of what's being dubbed Marvel's greatest ever film, Black Panther. However, I looked at it as just a comic book movie that was long overdue rather than a movie that helped sparked a social movement.

"I've never really seen a character like that in a script before", Wright says.

Akil Houston, associate professor of cultural and media studies, said Black Panther went against the preconceived notion that films with mostly black casts can't be successful and that white audiences were receptive to the film. Boseman stars as T'Challa, the first black superhero in the Marvel franchise, and Nyong'o as the spy Nakia-performances which, like the film, are receiving universal acclaim.

If you haven't gone to see the movie that is demolishing the box office right now, I recommend that you do.

A study conducted by the Creative Arts Agency past year confirmed that movies with a greater cast diversity performed much better than those lacking inclusion - and people of color made up almost half of ticket buyers attending screenings during opening weekends of those films. Black Panther seduces the whole world, and still has attractive days in front of him, before the release of the highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War on the 24th of April next.
