After being introduced to Prince T’Challa of Wakanda (Chadwick Boseman) in Captain America: Civil War Marvel audiences get to enter his domain in Black Panther. The new king must defend his nation and his title against threats that put the entire world at risk. Fighting alongside the Black Panther are Wakanda’s elite troop of warriors, the Dora Milaje lead by Danai Gurira’s Okoye. The all-female fighting force is a beacon of power and strength, and their presence on screen was especially significant to Danai who spoke to us about the importance of representation in Black Panther.
Black Panther costars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Andy Serkis, Angela Basset and Forest Whitaker. The buzz of excitement and thrill surrounding the MCU’s first black superhero standalone movie is palpable and we for one think it’s well worth the hype. Don’t miss the action packed adventure when it hits theatres across Canada on February 16th.
